Florida Man: the world's worst superhero
 
This twitter account, @_FloridaMan, is ridiculously funny.

musicgeek 20 February 2013 07:29 PM

It's almost too perfect, isn't it?

I wonder whether the other states' superheroes would be as entertaining. The only one I can see giving Florida Man a run for his money is California Man (or possibly California Woman).

ETA:A Google search for "Connecticut Man" is mostly depressing. "Connecticut Woman" shows promise:

Connecticut Woman pulls loaded gun at Chuck E. Cheese

Connecticut Woman is state's first Playboy centerfold

Connecticut Woman turns guns into jewelry

Connecticut Woman arrested after botched neutering

Connecticut Woman steals wig, bites chunk of store owner's arm

Texas Man sounds like an archvillain with a vendetta against anyone close to him:

Of course there's the Onion favorite, "Area Man."

That Florida Man is one smooth operator!

And where is Florida Man when we really need him?

Not surprised about the bears. As the article mentions, the population has grown to the point where some people are bringing up the possibility of re-legalizing bear hunting.

Florida Man (a Congressman!) Eats Earwax Live on C-SPAN
 
Today Rep. Joe Garcia, D-Fla., learned that the cameras are always rolling. The rest of us learned that Congressman Joe Garcia is kinda gross.

Florida John Offered Salad In Return For Sex
 
Meet Alonzo Liverman. Short on cash, the 29-year-old Floridian allegedly offered to provide a salad to a prostitute in exchange for oral sex, according to cops.

Dang, all this time I thought 'toss her salad' was just a euphemism.

Florida man put to death in 3rd U.S. execution in 24 hours

Now, is Florida Man down for the count, or will he rise up like Superman?

For the record, I don't support capital punishment.

One of our family stories is how, back during the 1930s, my grandfather went hunting and shot a bear. He gave some of the meat to his employees, including my grandfather. Grandmother had never cooked bear in her life, but back during the depression you didn't say 'no' to free meat.

It was so horrible that nobody could eat it. Even the neighbor's DOG turned up his nose at it. They finally buried it in the backyard.

Florida Road Construction Sign Hacked To Show Extremely Vulgar Message
 
Drivers in Hillsborough County were subjected to a road construction sign that was flashing an obscene message after being hacked.

http://tampa.cbslocal.com/2014/07/08...ight-in-the-p/

I think the headline is misleading. To qualify for an 'extremely,' I think it should have suggested a different locus.

GenYus234 09 July 2014 02:21 PM

But since the F-bomb is king of the dirty words, does not it qualify for "extremely" all by itself?

A Turtle Named Mack 09 July 2014 04:16 PM

Only if the f-word is used as a curse word, as opposed to here, actually referring to the act. :p

GenYus234 09 July 2014 04:44 PM

Actually (at least as suggested by FCC v. Fox Television ), that's backwards. The S-bomb and the F-bomb are patently indecent when describing the actual act, but not when used as curse words.
