Another Strange Year in Florida

From the Orlando Sentinel Mullet Wrapper, this is where I live and why I laugh. A lot.

A few of my favorites:

  • And it seems like in nowhere else but Florida could customs agents find a human skull, complete with skin and hair attached, in the suitcase of a woman returning home from Haiti. She told the agents at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport that it was to ward off evil spirits
  • Here's a reason to say no to drugs: Polk County deputies had to rescue a 45-year-old man who was naked and high on crack from the jaws of a nearly 12-foot alligator.
  • State Sen. Gary Siplin, D-Orlando, did his best to run from his problems. After being arrested and charged with grand theft, a television reporter showed up at his office. Instead of a "no comment," Siplin ran out the back of the building and was caught on tape climbing over a fence to reach a getaway car. After his conviction on the felony charges, Siplin filed a bill to restore voting rights to felons.

That's just a few. Read the whole thing to see why you should visit but not live here.
