    Have you come across this? It’s the Reddit for Florida Man. Sort of like Onion’s “Area Man,” but limited to the special crazy that is Florida.

  2. Mikey says:

    That escalated quickly.

  3. Jeremy says:

    What the hell is in Florida’s water?

  4. Tillman says:

    @Mikey: Especially since the McFlurry is a poor man’s Dairy Queen Blizzard.

    Who in the heck runs around with gasoline and alcohol ready to torch someone’s car?! Methinks we’re missing The Rest Of The Story….

    You’re all wrong. This is an outtake from Sarah Palin’s new reality show: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/sarah-palins-new-reality-show-is-basically-jackass-for-conservatives/

    @Tillman: So true, but I like the Heath bar flavor. DQ butterscotch shakes rock! Especially with a hb all the way and large fries! Best meal on earth and all for around $5.

    What an odd picture. It looks like someone ate their McDonald’s food on a plate, with metal silverware.

  9. ernieyeball says:

    @Pinky: Sheer speculation. Looking at the bag and the melted McFlurry I’d say they took it home and ate it there.
    I’ve done that before. Odd is one of the nicer things people have called me.
