It seems like every week there are several hilarious, yet disturbing news stories coming out of Florida. If a broadcaster begins a story with the words, "A Florida man...", you know you're in for a doozy.

The WBLM Morning Show invites you to take part in "Florida Man Week". Call us between 6 and 9 am this week and we'll read the news stories that came out of Florida on your birthday this year. We guarantee something completely wackadoo happened.

The Florida Man challenge has gone viral, and that was easy to do because Florida's "Sunshine Laws" make  public records super accessible. You can get basic information about crime practically in real time.

Examples of Florida headlines:

  • Florida Man wins election in card game
  • Florida Man tries trading live gator for beer
  • Florida Man Learns Hard Way He Stole Laxatives, Not Opioids
  • Florida Man Accused of Robbing Chinese Restaurant at Finger Point

Why are there so many wacky stories coming out of Florida? Well, they have a huge population with a lot of diversity, the weather is warm and sunny so folks are out getting into mischief non-stop and crimes become public record almost immediately.

Tune in for Florida Man Week with the WBLM Morning Show. I wonder what Maine Man Week would be like?...
