Dear Floridians (and everybody else),
Florida’s a fucked up place. From animal abusers to angry ex-cops to Zimmerman to horse fuckers, we have plenty of issues. WTF Florida is your source for these fucked up news articles, and we encourage hysterical laughter at the zany headlines coming out of the Gunshine State.
After the laughter comes tears. The victims of Florida’s insanity aren’t laughing (unless they’re truly demented, which happens sometimes). We have a responsibility to improve Florida as much as we can.
WTF Florida would like to state a new mission:
We are dedicated to becoming a Karma Neutral State.
We want Florida’s karmatic number to be perfectly balanced at zero. Laughing at other people’s misery brings negative karma. Doing fucked up shit brings negative karma. Helping people who have been fucked over by Florida’s insanity brings you positive karma. We are still going to make fun of everybody who shows up on this site, but we are also going to start getting more serious about fixing stupid shit.
From this point on, we will occasionally start petitions to bring about justice, and to fix things that are unfair or that defy morals. We encourage our readers to help, not only by signing and sharing these petitions, but to also create them yourselves and to contact your representatives when appropriate. Please contact us if you have an issue that is important to you.
Send us info about your non-profit group or activism group, and we will try to get you more views (if you don’t mind being associated with us). Use the Contact page and let us know what you’re about.
All big problems start small. You can make a difference today by doing little things. Give a homeless person a bottle of water. Ask a local school what supplies they need and gift them with what you can afford. Use your fucking turn signals. The list goes on.
Help us help our state.
Let’s work together for the greater good.
Let’s make Florida slightly less fucked up.

Only the “Right Of Adults To Cannabis” amendment can secure your RIGHT to possess, cultivate, and use cannabis in a manner similar to your 2nd amendment right to “keep and bear arms” … think about that for a minute.

This scenario became a reality near a Jungle Club in Vero Beach.

Here in Sebastian we have a 48-year-old woman who, according to an affidavit, attacked her husband with a toilet lid. Angela Austin-Knight was arrested for domestic violence after police showed up in the 900 block of Truman Street in Sebastian, Florida.
The frightened husband told the 911 dispatcher that he “locked himself in the bathroom and his wife was attempting to gain access using a porcelain toilet lid.”
When the cops arrived they found her standing in the kitchen holding a bottle of liquor.
Apparently they had been arguing, and as the intensity grew, this wild banshee woman started to “chaotically swing” at him, hitting him in the face and chest. He did what any man would do and ran away to hide in the bathroom.The Toilet Lid Terrorist
“After realizing the door was locked, Angela then grabbed a nearby porcelain toilet lid, and used it to break the kitchen window, where she made entry into the residence,” states the affidavit.
Once she gained access, she “threatened to hurt him further with the porcelain toilet lid.”
Austin-Knight, our femme fatale Floridian, gave the police several different statements about the wild night. She was extremely intoxicated, as most Florida people are at all times. She was arrested that night of Oct. 17, 2015 and taken to jail.
So this Florida Man found a human skull and decided to play with it. Waltzing into a grocery store in south Florida, he kindly entertained the customers with a puppet show.
“He was using it as a puppet,” said Nick Pecoraro… “It smelled like death.”
