Bit of Fun- Wilhelm Scream Answered

How many movies have you seen that contain this classic easter egg? Don't know what it is? You've probably already heard it a few times before. Every time I go to a movie I enjoy searching for this sound-clip. When I find it, I normally turn to my friend and say did you hear the Wilhelm Scream? I normally get a blank stare followed by The what?
'Course I'm the one that studies and analyzes movies' camera shots, angles, etc for fun.

Fact: ever wonder why you get so bored watching old movies? Nowadays in entertainment, the human brain gets bored after only five seconds. This means that shots can not be longer then five seconds without a cut, angle change, or radical camera movement. Back then, the limit was ten agonizing seconds. Try it yourself; next time you see a (relatively new) movie, count the seconds before a cut. You'll rarely get past five. In The Bourne Ultimatum, I barely got past three!

LOL at the image. Haha, imagine the Wilhelm Scream actually showed Eric's face, and then him screaming.

Somebody who can use photoshop a lot better than I can ought to recreate Munch's Scream from Eric's avatar (with a small alligator in the background), then turn it into a short video clip with the Wilhelm scream as the sound track.

Oh! I could do that!

Why the alligator, though?

Either Eric has a fear of alligators or he's referencing the Wilhelm Scream's original name: Man being eaten by crocodile.
