Florida has a reputation for being home to some pretty hilarious characters who get mixed up in some peculiar events. This is how the Florida Man became a trope of all the men living in Florida and making the headlines for some pretty mind-blowing happenings, such as defiling a washing machine or driving a “foot mobile” dressed in Fred Flinstone. The Internet reacts best to these kind of relatable fun facts. Because, it’s a fact: the Florida Man is crazy and the Internet doesn’t forget or forgive.
So now, we have a Florida Man Challenge on our hands. It has taken over Twitter and made the news, making the Florida Man proud, I think. The challenge goes much like this: you type “Florida Man” on Google, followed by your birth date (year is not neccessary) and you make a print screen of the results and post it on Twitter. For example, I searched “Florida Man, 10th June” and the first result that came up was “A Florida man was arrested for assaulting his roommate with pizza”. Yeah, quite random and pretty hilarious.
So, let’s see what the whole of Internet have made of it! Grab your popcorn and enjoy!
