If you haven’t been brushing up on news about Florida lately, try following Florida Man, a brilliant Twitter feed that tracks the none-too-subtle antics of, well, said Florida Man as he makes news headlines like ‘Florida Man Arrested While Sunbathing Naked And Holding Rubber Penis’ and ‘Florida Man Shoots And Kills Roommate Over Pork Chop‘. The Twitter feed purportedly has its origins in a screengrab of Florida Man that circulated on Reddit, mocking him as ‘a terrible superhero’. Of course, if it makes to the news, it’s either tragic or funny. Or, like in this case, it’s both.
