When going out with peers to a bar or restaurant and nobody offers to pay the bill, hence they and yourself have the short arms of a crocodile.
It's kinda of a turn off when you go on a date with a girl and you got crocodile arms all night.

When you don't care and someone is in need of sympathy, but you want to appear sympathetic, you hug them with your 'crocodile arms'. Like 'crocodile tears', your hug is not sincere.
Person A: My boyfriend broke up with me! *starts crying*
Person B: (¬_¬ he was too good for you anyway) Aw! Come here gal. *hugs with crocodile arms*

(since crocodiles have short arms): the short end of the stick, i.e the worst possible deal, (among those acceptable to you) that is being offered.
if you are being offered multiple deals all of which are morally, socially or culturally unacceptable to you, its better to walk away from them all, and instead, get a crocodile arms type of deal. as the saying goes you can't have your cake and eat it too, but at least you get something
