The Many Adventures of The Florida Man


Florida, the state of crocodiles and swamps, and Disney World too. However, there is a secret trend in the state, “The Florida Man”!!

If you make the simple query of “Florida Man” and your birthday, you can see what a Florida Man has done on that day. Mine was crazy, and I think I should let the title of an article covering it show what I mean!  “A Florida man was rescued after trying to ride a hamster ball to the Bahamas.”

Wait, let me backtrack, what is a Florida Man? A “Florida Man” is a person who does crazy things (like wrestling an alligator) usually in Florida. These happen frequently, but some can be more sad or terrible than funny.

Apparently, this meme originated in February of 2013 with the Twitter (X) account of @_FloridaMan posting. There’s even a television series on Netflix named Florida Man, perhaps riding on the popularity of this phenomenon.

Do you think it’s true?
