Things that only Happen in Florida!

Recommended Posts

Every time I open the paper, I find a story that I know could only happen in the state of Florida... Example below:

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/gay-porn-star-coming-back-school-article-1.1586492

HS student suspended for being a gay porn star, now welcome back at school with support of classmates.

Quote from the boys mom (classic):

I don't think this is anybody's business except for my son's, his mother, Melyssa Lieb told the station.

I think he's the most awesome person in the world. He stood up, and he was the man of the house when I couldn't be, she told the station.

He's 18. He's an adult. Not sure what is so crazy here.

When I think crazy Florida I think about the guy claiming self defense after he climbed a fence to go after someone, who was unarmed though wearing a hoodie, with a gun. Oh of course he lied about shooting him to start with. Or I think about the cop that just got off with shooting a family dog while their two year child was sitting next to the dog in a stroller. Or maybe the road rage jackass that shot himself in the leg while showing off his penis I mean his gun. Those seem more like only in Florida to me.

Lawyers for a Florida man this week cited President George W. Bush’s pre-emptive war in Iraq and the “Bush Doctrine” as a defense after their client killed two neighbors and attempted to kill a third on Labor Day.

This one is sad, only in Florida though..

Here is a blurb; David Courson has been charged with manslaughter for death of daughter Rebecca Courson. An unrelated girl, 13, was moving Courson’s truck when car went into reverse instead of drive. The father and the driver both reeked of booze. A bag of weed was later found in truck.

Florida mom brought her daughter to NY to whore her out for Super Bowl week - to be fair, this didn't "happen" in Florida, but they came from Florida.

This one is from my town. Very surprised to see it here. It is super sad. I'm friends with the grandmother and we know the older sister. The family is devastated.

What rule did the 18 yo student break that they thought it would be legal to suspend him?

Schools feel that it is their duty to punish students for all sorts of stuff that takes away from school grounds. I've never understood why this flies.

Man Beats Girl for 40 Minutes to the Tune of Blurred Lines


Fillingim reportedly hit her on the back of the thighs for 40 minutes while the song played, each hit coming in tune with the beat like a metronome. If that's not demented enough, he began to record the beating, sending it to his girlfriend via text message.

Just want to point out that most of these stories happen North of Palm Beach county or south of Broward County.

As the local saying goes, you need to go north in order to go south.

Can't believe they had an altercation at a place with this name

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -

One person is dead and another is injured after a disturbance at a St. Augustine bar late Thursday night.

Detectives with the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office responded to the Crow Bar, located off SR-16 east of I-95, shortly before 11:30 p.m. in reference to a disturbance.

One person was pronounced dead. Another person was transported to Flagler Hospital for treatment.

Details of the disturbance were not immediately released.

Witnesses were detained for questioning.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office is investigating and said additional information will be released when it becomes available.

A hunter in Tampa, Fla., mistook a man practicing turkey calls for a deer Sunday night and shot him—twice—with a high-powered rifle.

http://www.newser.com/story/182522/hunter-mistakes-man-for-deer-shoots-him-twice.html

Are there #### deer and hen deer in Florida?

Just another responsible gun owner having no ####### idea what he is shooting but doing it anyway.

I guess we should bring back prohibition since a lot of these are related to alcohol consumption

Police are looking for a man they say has urinated repeatedly on people as they stood at locations near the University of Florida campus.

The victims told the Gainesville Police Department they were standing with their backs turned to the man when they suddenly felt themselves being urinated upon, according to a GPD report.

A week or two ago, I stood on my balcony in my boxers and watched an Atlas V rocket launch from about 15 miles away and tower majestically over the Atlantic Ocean while hundreds of people camped out on the beach with coolers cheered and whistled. That only happens in Florida.

I'm pretty sure people stand on balconies in their boxers in other states, too.
