Florida’s always been wild. The name “Sim-in-oli” was given to those who left Oconee around 1750. It means “wild.” Members of the Creek Confederacy who traveled south to what is now Florida were probably proud of their honorific, as are Floridians.

Oviedo (WTFF) – A man in Seminole County was upset about a supposedly undercooked burger at Steak ‘n Shake, so he pried open a drive-thru window to yell at the employees.
Ronald Burns ordered a burger at the Steak ‘n Shake on Red Bug Lake Road in Oviedo, Saturday. The Oviedo Mall is across the street.
At 62 he should be old enough to control his temper, but this is Florida Man, so we can just assume he has the emotional intelligence of a 5-year-old.

An eviction turned deadly Friday night and a landlord is now in jail on a first-degree murder charge after police say he shot a tenant living at his parent’s Duck Key home.
Ryan Wilder, 32, of Winter Springs, Fla. is being held in county jail in Marathon on no bond. Monroe County Sheriff’s Office detectives say he shot and killed Kenneth Palicki, 47, shortly before 6:30 p.m. Friday night.
Palicki and his girlfriend, Colleen Lyons, 25, lived at 162 North Indies Drive, a house owned by Wilder’s parents, said Deputy Becky Herrin, media relations officer for the Sheriff’s Office. Palicki and Lyons had been served eviction papers requiring them to be out of the house by Aug. 23, Herrin said.
Wilder went to the house Friday and no one was home. He began taking items from the house outside when Palicki and Lyons returned home. Wilder and Palicki began arguing and Palicki told Lyons to call the Sheriff’s Office, which she did. While on the phone with a dispatcher, Lyons said Wilder had a pistol in a holster on his hip.

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.
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 »

Oviedo, FL — An innocent man got a harsh dose of the incompetent police state recently after cops mistook his drywall for cocaine. He was subsequently kidnapped and thrown in a cage for months solely because of the ignorance of these officers and the faulty nature of their test kits.
To those who constantly say, “if you don’t want to get arrested, then don’t break the law,” consider the following.
In March of this year, Karlos Cashe was pulled over for a minor traffic ticket after he forgot to turn on his lights. However, it quickly went south after police saw drywall powder on his seat and floorboard and mistook it for cocaine. Full Story »
This happened in a Cracker Barrel at 200 Hickman Circle in Sanford. Imagine you are sitting down eating typical white American food, engorging your already fat and diabetes-ridden gut with fried lard and sausage, when suddenly… GUN FIRE!
Our proud ‘Murican, William Hoback, accidentally fired his gun when it slipped out of the holster.Florida cracker fires his gun in a Cracker Barrel
The bullet found it’s way to a kettle, which shattered and injured several people including his fiancé and a store manager. The third victim had shrapnel in his leg and went to the hospital.
Hoback said he was sorry and explained it was an accident. Our good ol’ boys in blue decided that because of his white redneck privilege, an “oops I’m sorry” would suffice and therefore, charges were not pressed by the deputies.
This Cracker Barrel off I-4 near State Road 46 was closed down for several hours as these hicks investigated the cause for the shooting and filled their obese bellies with fried pork fritters and pork sausage gravy covered in bacon.
“This is ridiculous what they’re doing and this is a priority they should take away the guns,” said Ashok Soni, who is some angry businessman who sadly lives in the area surrounded by redneck Neanderthals.
Cuz ahm prowd 2 bee ahn amerryken! Muh freedomz! I mean seriously you can’t get any more Florida than this. Accidentally shooting people in a Cracker Barrel at HICKman circle? WTF Florida? This godforsaken state is truly its own satire.
