Working fast food sucks enough when you don't have to deal with dangerous reptiles flying towards you. It's an especially rough shift though, when a jackass hurls a live alligator through the drive-thru window. 

Which is exactly what jackass Josh James -- in Florida of course -- did at a West Palm Beach Wendy's. C'mon dude, just because they screwed up your order doesn't mean you have to go and toss a gator grenade at them.

The guy who threw the alligator is reportedly a big fan of the late crocodile hunter Steve Irwin and only meant it as a fun prank. Y'know, because live alligators are the new whoopee cushions of pranking. 

"He's a prankster. He does stuff like this because he believes it's funny" -- mom of jackass who hurled gator. 

Josh is now in jail for assault with a deadly weapon. The gator was sent back to the swamp with some chicken nuggets and a frosty.
