Florida Man...

So you go to googel etc. and type in "Florida Man (your birth day)" and read the first news headline that comes up, there are some doozies. Been going on several weeks now so the first links are about the game, just skip those and you're sure to laugh.
I think mine wins though.

"Florida man with no arms charged with stabbing tourist..!"

The funny part about this is I'm from FL, and this is EXACTLY why I moved out of that God forsaken hell hole. If you want to vacation there, I highly recommend it. Just stay close to the water. Don't wander inland. What ever you do, don't go inland. I lived in a po-dunk little town in a po-dunk little county in the middle of FL. Our sheriff did so many press conferences that he had his own stage and backdrop. And I promise you, he wasn't making it a safer place to live.

We had a good laugh with this last week at the office.

Nothing worthwhile is ever quick, cheap or easy, those that can't do, complain

Ok, this is fun:

The second hit is even better:

I listen to a morning radio show out of Houston and they are always talking about Florida Man, they even have a musical introduction when they do the Florida Man bit.

The @_FloridaMan twitter account can be pretty good. He's been going for 5-6 years now so it's slacked off but the older stuff is a hoot.

Lots of north-easterners move to Florida.
Let’s just say that Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania aren’t exactly sending their best and brightest.

If you registered to vote, your birthday, full name, address, phone number and party affiliation are available online. Not sure what you think you're protecting by not entering a random month and day into Google.
