New Twitter feed @_FloridaMan, as noted by Slate, tweets out horrific stories that contain the phrase "Florida Man" in the headline. It's a simple but effective idea, and there’s far more material than you’d expect.
Once you delve into the stories linked below, things get downright ugly. However, it's a lot funnier if you imagine it’s the same guy doing all of the following things on his way to winning every Darwin Award ever.
