Best Twitter Meme
Published: July 31, 2013
Florida, as we all know, is a hot, humid petri dish of weird and dumb and terrible stuff, and it’s high time someone decided to catalog our parade of awful. And so we give you Florida Man, the “world’s worst superhero,” a Twitter handle (@_FloridaMan) chronicling headlines that begin with the words “Florida Man.” For instance: “Florida Man Arrested for DUI on Lawnmower on Fourth of July”; “Florida Man Tries to Kill Cousin for Not Inviting Him to 2-Year-Old’s Birthday Party”; “Florida Man Caught Picking Hallucinogenic Mushrooms With Alligator in Backpack.” Florida Man’s Twitter feed is as existentially Floridian as a Carl Hiaasen novel. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll start looking for jobs somewhere far away – Alaska seems nice, right?
