This game has been making the rounds on the internet lately. Isn't it time we join in the fun here?

Google "Florida man" and your month and date of birth and post the headline for that day here. It may be possible to get multiple hits on interesting headlines, so feel free to post more than once on this thread!

Mine:
Florida man, drunk and naked, allegedly set house on fire in failed cookie baking attempt

"Disney officials indicate that because he is a native, he has both a moral and fiduciary obligation to support the corporation and the local economy, hence the bill for $475..."

There's a bunch of them, but I like this one the best.

Bradenton, Florida Man Arrested After Giving Several “Wedgies” to Bradenton Movie Goers

Beats a mass shooting. And, to be an equal opportunity offender::

Police bust Florida woman with 4 Rolexes hidden in her body cavity

I'll let you guess what cavity they're talking about.

My state had a Florida moment. A woman shot, possibly killed, a man while in a car on the Coast, while in a car. She then drove them up to my fair city, about an 1.15, 1.5 hours away.

That’s not Richard Florida, the economic development guru who turned the urban planning world upside down with his seminal work, Bowling Alone... No, that’s leading man Gary Busey who is the superstar actor who played a loving father and husband in David Lynch’s acclaimed and beloved Lost Highway film from the late 90s.

On the other hand NC is quickly hitting that vibe too...

Who is Florida Man?


Florida man thought he bought a villa, actually paid thousands for tiny 100-by-1 foot strip of land

Michigan = Floriduh North


:halo:
You get out into the interior of MI and you definitely run into a lot of northern rednecks/hillbillies. Trust me. I spent the first 20 years of a life living around many.

Indeed. Isn't there some kind of saying like 'you can take a boy out of the sticks but you can never....[something or other I forget what]?'

I thought I'd put in December 25. The first relevant hit?


From the article. It's really kind of sad.

"But by 7 p.m., Weaver grew angry and began hitting his wife and breaking windows with his cane, police said. "The vampires are going to defend themselves," he shouted, according to the arrest report/"

Here's something a bit different
. Spoilering the first item for mature content.

Butt-Plug Bandit Says He Was Too Embarrassed to Buy One

Christopher Masters was a bit too embarrassed to bring his purchases to the cashier at the Spencer's Gift Shop in Vero Beach, Florida. So instead he shoved the "screw butt plug" and "stroker can" down his khaki shorts and tried to steal them back on December 10.


And the second item:

"Dawk Meikle's husband was farting in bed, so who could blame her for trying to get him to stop. She began elbowing him, but her husband kept mining for gas. So Meikle, 55, kept punching and kicking. The squirmish turned into a full-fledged fight after Meikle's husband attempted to restrain her. The man eventually received about seven to eight scratches on his chest and had his shirt torn in three different places. The incident happened in the early hours of December 11 in Port St. Lucie. Meikle was charged with domestic battery. "

Florida man arrested for trying to get alligator drunk

told authorities he had consumed a few beers that day, but claimed he wasn’t intoxicated during the incident.
After the beer feeding, which was recorded,

Florida man in Trump costume punched in face by 14-year-old girl: cops

A Florida man dressed as President Trump allegedly got decked in the jaw by a teenage girl — whose friends filmed the thwacking and posted it on Instagram, officials said.

These Florida stereotypes are the strongest (yes, even stronger than Florida Man)
