Florida Man has quickly become one of my very favorite Twitter feeds, representing a peculiar blend of stupidity, crassness, and mind-boggling lack of common sense that is a genre unto itself. If you aren’t following Florida Man, I don’t know what you’re doing with your time on Twitter, but I am prepared to say that you’re spending it poorly. Don’t take our word for it, though. Check out our fifteen favorite examples of behavior peculiar to Florida Man.
