What a gyp, I get that nobody was on hand to video the actual jump, but they can't even show a clip of the crashed car?

OK, he was in Alabama, but, among other crimes, he fed meth to a squirrel that he trained to attack people??

...He’s the “modern day Hamburglar,” police say....

...After breaking the windows with a brick or large rocks after hours, Benson started up the grill, made himself a burger and ate it, the sheriff’s office said. Only after his meal did he grab the safe and make his escape...

It's like Floridaman wasn't bad enough. Now we have Floridaflesheatingbacteria:

Family: Woman dies from flesh-eating disease in Florida

MIAMI (AP) — A 77-year-old woman was infected by flesh-eating bacteria and died nearly two weeks after she fell and scraped her leg while walking on a Florida beach, her family said Monday.

Wade Fleming told The Associated Press that his mother Lynn Fleming, who retired to Florida’s Gulf Coast, stumbled and fell into the water on Coquina Beach while her family was visiting from Pittsburgh. The wound swelled up and continued to bleed, leading her to urgent care where she was prescribed antibiotics and given a tetanus shot.

The woman was taken a day later to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with the flesh-eating disease and died Thursday after suffering two strokes and organ failure.

Blow: a case of pufferfish intoxication in South Florida

Abstract

We report the case of a 43-year-old African American man with a history of hypertension and chronic kidney disease presenting with hypertensive emergency and bulbar paralysis in a descending fashion, which ultimately led to acute respiratory failure. He ingested pufferfish liver during the preceding 4 hours prior to presentation, as well as canned foods and cocaine over the prior 3 days. He had a complicated hospital course requiring intubation and mechanical ventilation, as well as the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome and acute renal failure requiring haemodialysis. This case exemplifies the classic manifestations of tetrodotoxin poisoning with some unique overlapping features, in the setting of an interesting social history.

Mr. Lucky:

Florida man contracts flesh-eating bacteria without even touching water

King, who owns a water sports business, says he did not directly touch water the day he was infected. He still doesn't know how it happened but he considers himself lucky.

Florida Mall.

And the name of the shuttered restaurant where the explosion occurred was PizzaFire.

Nobody killed, thank God but Pie Place Are Flat not Squared.

The lesson here is only in Florida would you have a mall fire caused by a place called PizzaFire. Fortified with irony.

Here... here is your Floridaman story involving alligators....
A Florida man who allegedly resisted arrest after being reported for illegally feeding an alligator he named Hank has described the 10-foot reptile as "a good friend" who "loves bagels."
"Thinks he is Dr. Doolittle... "

And it was funny to him because he had meth in his pockets? And the family was letting him live in a tent in the yard?
