The sun is shining, the weather is warm, and the summer of Florida Man continues unabated. Deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office arrested the driver of a little red Corvette in Ocala, Florida last weekend after he was reportedly seen driving at 100 mph on surface streets, but at least it was easy this time: The driver promptly told them he didn’t have a driver’s license, he had just taken Percocet and used cocaine, marijuana, and heroin, and he had fake tags on the car to boot.

To everyone watching this video… the behavior is exactly what NOT to do if you see a wild bear out here in Florida.
Please don’t make eye contact with them, and for fuck’s sake… please don’t say “Hey buddy…” to invite them over, as tempting as that may be. While they probably won’t rip your face off (they might, and they could very easily), that kind of behavior trains them not to fear humans. Not everyone wants to that close to a bear, and the more comfortable they feel around us, the more they will get shot by freaked out newbies, or once in a while decide to eat somebody because they’re hungry. It happens, we all gotta eat…
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.
A woman is facing felony charges after deputies say she brought her 10-year-old child to an armed robbery in Marion County Friday night.
Deputies said 30-year-old Christina Gaud was the driver of the getaway vehicle while her accomplice, 33-year-old Rodney Snow, robbed the shop, according to a press release from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
When deputies responded to the shop at the intersection of State Road 200 and S.W. 80th Street, they saw a masked man run out of the store and into a waiting car.
The car fled a short distance before crashing at the 7900 block of S.W. 80th Street, deputies said.
Deputies said Snow ran toward a wooded area and shot himself when police surrounded him. Snow is in critical condition at a hospital, according to the release.
Deputies soon discovered that Gaud’s 10-year-old child was in the vehicle during the robbery and pursuit. The child was not injured, police said. It was not clear if Gaud was injured.
Gaud is facing charges of felony child neglect and principal to an armed robbery. The child is in the custody of the Department of Children and Families, police said.
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.
Whether you agree or disagree with Americans right to gun ownership, the strength of this protected right is clear and viewed my many as absolute. Floridians For Freedom believes adults right to whole plant cannabis should be comparable and hopes you agree. Full Story »
