I thought starting a thread that contains offbeat and funny news that happens in Florida could be fun. I'll start with one I saw on TBO.com today.

Woman hurt falling from motor home while using bathroom
DEFUNIAK SPRINGS - A 55-year-old Alabama woman has been injured after she fell out of a motor home traveling on a Florida interstate while trying to use the bathroom.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Sharon Glover had been drinking when she fell out of the moving motor home near Pensacola on Tuesday. She walked to the rear of the vehicle to use the restroom, fell and slid 100 feet on the pavement before landing in the grass. She was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.
The driver, Bonnie Rickett, noticed Glover had fallen out of the motor home and pulled over about a quarter mile from where Glover fell.

Now that's funny... because it didn't happen to me.

Not a whole lot of funny news stories in FL I guess... Someone getting serious injuries is funny?

Bonita Springs woman arrested for fighting with friend in taxi cab | news-press.com | The News-Press

She lets the cops know they can't arrest her because she's "a New Yorker" and her brother "is CSI."
