About WTF Florida

Our Mission

WTF Florida is dedicated to all the dumb criminals, absurd antics, ridiculous happenings, and general hilarity that happens in Florida. We pride ourselves on being “Florida’s best worst news site.” Follow the ever-evolving timeline of “Florida Man” and “Florida Woman” by tuning into WTFF News. All the articles in the “crime” section are based on real events and include either arrest affidavits or source links. Transparency and accountability are very important to us. Occasionally we post satirical articles which are clearly labeled in the “satire” section. Our stories are written factually and accurately, though we do sometimes give way to laughs. Expect bias and bluntly-presented truths. Expect sarcasm, purposely exaggerated to elucidate the trickery of corporate media. We’re essentially a comedy news site that showcases harsh reality from a unique Floridian perspective. We also expose corruption and promote liberty, civil rights, animal rights, education and environmental health.

But what is it really?

Basically, WTF Florida is a collection of fucked up things in Florida that make functional people wonder “WTF?” to which we reply “Florida.” We collect “Florida Man” and “Florida Woman” articles, write them somewhat terribly, and post them here to prove our hypothesis that Florida is the most fucked up state in the country. It’s a cathartic process; reiterating the fuckery of Florida for the world to laugh at, solidifying people’s bad decisions in cyberspace forever in a journal of degradation. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are funny. Sometimes the stories are upsetting. Often, if not always, they’re a mix of all three.

WTF Florida is powered by a bizarre balance of love and hate for the state of Florida. I started the site because of my hatred for the state. Over the years though, love found a way in. Much of that love manifested from the snarky comments our readers leave on the articles we post. Your sarcasm and funny comments create a solidarity where we can find refuge from the ugly realities of living here. The rest of my love for Florida was scraped from the bottom of my heart by the beautiful people I’ve met while living in this God-forsaken state. Also animals. Wildlife and puppies and lizards and gators make living here tolerable. And beaches and springs. Let’s get back on track though…

Several others admin the Facebook page and website. We’re all from Florida, so don’t worry about authenticity.

Sometimes we say things we don’t really mean. We call that sarcasm. Don’t be so fucking eager to get offended.

Sometimes we say things we really do mean. Not everyone will agree. We welcome friendly discourse, and tolerate downright nasty rebuttals… to a degree. Just don’t belittle anyone who’s unable/unwilling to defend themselves, or threaten to kill anyone, or else we’ll ban you from writing comments. You must read and agree to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use to use this site.

That’s enough for now. I can’t fully describe what this site is, because this site, like everything in this impermanent universe, is constantly changing and can never be adequately defined or quantified as this or that. It’s whatever you want it to be. It is a living, breathing, always evolving manifestation of Florida and the fuckery that happens here. Enjoy.
