You know all those wackadoo crime stories that seep out of Florida like never-ending spillover from the Okefenokee Swamp?
- Florida Man in Tiny White Shorts and Belly Shirt Gets DUI After Crashing Into Three Cars
- Florida Man Arrested for Calling 911 After His Cat Was Denied Entry Into Strip Club
- Florida Man Tries to Rob Convenience Store with Cattle Prod
(All actual headlines, mind.)
Well, what if every single one of those crimes had been committed by the same person—the notorious Florida Man (Homo floridicus?), who falls someplace on the evolutionary spectrum between Australopithecus afarensis and Cletus the Slack-jawed Yokel? This is the genius behind the @_FloridaMan Twitter feed, “Real-life headlines about the world’s worst superhero.”
He’s Florida’s gift to culture. Follow him if you dare.
