See you later, alligator

“See you later, alligator” is a familiar way of saying “See you” (in written English also: See u or  C U)” in American English . It is usually said to children who are expected to answer “In a while, crocodile“. There is no special reason why using those animals, the only purpose is that they rhyme.
