Florida set the bar for crazies in the country. Cuban subs? Backyard gators? Air-boating air-heads? Check, check, and check.

Also, as of late, that really dry one, you know what state I mean. I'm still laughing at that mayor or whoever who used the term "shade ball" on national news.

No state is as bad as parts of Mexico, some things I saw in Mexico I can never erase from my memory.

Florida has some weird people but some parts are normal like Orlando, Miami is just a weird place in general.

Orlando?! Normal?! A city where the entire economy is built around a giant mouse?! Surely you jest!

While reading this thread, the only thing I can conjure up in my head is that Florida man who was found eating someone's face while on bath salts.

Or the Florida man that was high dancing on the police car while looking out for vampires. Or the woman that pulled a sword on the cop that had hundreds of fake bodies in her home lol plus I've heard many other bizarre stories from there

Oh I forgot about him! He was on bath salts and the police officer had to shoot him a few times I think as he didn't give up eating the homeless man.

Orlando is not "normal" and neither is most of Central Florida which is supposed to be the "land of Mickey" but remember this is where they filmed "Edward Scissor Hands!
