Meet the Queen of WTF Florida.
The one who triggered all the radical gun nuts.
The high school student who made grown men quiver in fear and retaliate with threats, conspiracies, and insults.
The one who made so-called “patriots” ridicule survivors for doing their American duty of fighting for civility and humanity by exercising their First Amendment rights.
The one who stood up against crooked politicians and called BS on the hypocrites, saying “Never Again.”
The one who allowed good gun owners to differentiate themselves from the angry, trigger-happy imbeciles who gleefully suck on mainstream fear-mongering propaganda.
The high school student from Florida who has more class and leadership skills than our current politicians.

About This Document
In the wake of Abraham Lincoln’s election to the presidency on November 6, 1860, Governor Madison Starke Perry called for Florida to prepare for secession and to join with other southern states in organizing an independent confederacy. The state legislature voted to hold a statewide election on December 22 for the selection of delegates to a convention that would meet in Tallahassee beginning on January 3, 1861, to decide whether Florida should secede. Of the sixty-nine delegates eligible to vote on January 10, 1861 for the adoption of an ordinance of secession, sixty-two voted yea and seven nay.
There are sixty-five signatures on the Ordinance of Secession. Full Story »
The Villages is the world’s largest retirement community, spanning 3 counties in the middle of Florida. They drive golf carts everywhere, especially to Publix. Happy hour goes on all the time. They line dance, twerk, party and get drunk every night on the three main squares and surrounding areas. They are recognized as their own city by the residents, though it’s technically a census-designated place. Full Story »

We will rolling out a big upgrade to the site soon. New features include:
The Florida Button, which when pressed, will add a vote to the article or image. Fuck a Like button, we got our own now. It’s very preliminary, so please report any bugs or suggestions.
Florida Points are the number of FloridApprovals (Florida Button votes) multiplied by the number of Florida Tags. Florida Points will be equal to the number of Florida Tags until there are at least 2 votes. Share posts and encourage others to hit the Florida Button to get the total Florida Points up.

The changing of categories will be an on-going process after the site update, so please excuse fuck-ups for the time being. Sections may look empty, but soon they will be filled.
Better Comments making it easier to share your thoughts and jokes.

Facebook status posts will be delayed for an entire month because they banned me again for posting memes and being silly. Fuck Facebook’s algorithms. And fuck being politically correct. Facebook’s just trying to compensate because they know they fucked up by selling millions of ads to Russians during the elections. Yep, all those “Keep America America!” memes that “patriotic,” senile people shared… they came from trolls in a country that hates America. It’s funny but it’s sad. Hopefully the Millennial generation won’t be so goddam fucking stupid. Yes I’m talking to all you baby-boomers and literal racists who got tricked into voting for Trump. You got played, you old pieces of shit. That’s the art of the deal… but whatever, back to the reason we got banned.
People are upset that Facebook allowed all that to happen and made a shit-load of money from those ads. So now Facebook’s just banning the shit out of everyone, doing damage control with their snowflake robots detecting “offensive” things as part of their damage control. Full Story »
Just to be clear, we don’t take “political party” sides. All of them are stupid, in their own unique way. Peaceful ideals are not enough to cure the divide as the corporate machine has dug its vacuum into politics and extracts power from us for profit. We provide to them the most valuable assets in the world: our time, our attention, our excitement, our hope. Some of their vehicles are: media, the news, internet, and broadcast television.
There’s a lot of really great news networks out there. And there’s a lot of crap. We’re somewhere in the middle, okay lower, but our uniqueness makes us shine (Florida’s a magical place). We say “fuck” sometimes. We make fun of Florida Man. We make fun of dumb criminals. Some of the articles have a spin on them. If you’ve been around here a while you will notice trends. Everything comes back to the center eventually. This is essentially a comedy site: here’s your fucking disclaimer. All of the articles in our “News” category are real though, based on actual events, and provide citations or police reports. We just have a weird sense of humor and most of the stories make us laugh.
Sometimes we post serious and important stuff. Use your mind to discern between the two, and remember they are sometimes one and the same.
Not everything should have to come with a Sarcasm tag, but as a sign of the times, and due to Poe’s Law, we do use it now, just to be clear. You’re welcome. We will use this tag on heavily slanted and politicized articles to gently remind you that “we’re just kidding!”
We’re never sarcastic. Ahem. Seriously though, don’t take any of this shit too seriously. And it’s all shit. Everything is. But within that shit is beauty and laughter and goodness. So go forth, be great, and keep Florida weird.
