“Florida Man...”

Are you guys aware of the “Florida Man” meme? Where you google the term and read the weird headlines”. One version is to google Florida man and your birthday.

"Florida man" is a new one, for me, although it has been around for about five years.

Nothing on my birthday, that I could find. But, there were some good ones.
