    When I lived in Florida I thought most of the crazy stories happened in Cali.. Now that I live in Texas I realize that Florida is the clear winner..... by a long shot. Very entertaining for sure.

    McDonald’s customer (Florida Man) tried to pay with marijuana
    By Jeff Weiner Orlando Sentinel

    A 23-year-old man was arrested in Port St. Lucie early Sunday after police say he tried to trade marijuana for food at a McDonald’s drive-thru.

    A manager at the McDonald’s on Port St. Lucie Boulevard told police he was working the drive thru just before 2 a.m. when a customer drove up in a gray Pontiac. The manager told the customer the price for his order, but the customer made a counter-offer — a baggie holding a “green leafy substance,” an arrest report states.

    The manager rejected the swap and called police after the Pontiac drove away, the report said.

    Police weren’t able to find the car, but an officer stayed behind and watched from an adjacent parking lot. Within minutes, the Pontiac returned and pulled into the drive thru again, police said.

    The officer pulled over the car and confronted the driver, Port St. Lucie resident Anthony Gallagher. The officer said Gallagher’s car smelled of marijuana. A pat-down discovered the plastic baggie, the contents of which tested positive for pot, the report said.

    11 times “Florida Man” made us LOL and SMH in 2018
    Gatehouse Media

    Look, I don’t like it anymore than you do -- the caricature that has become “Florida Man” and his crazy kinfolk “Florida Woman.” I mean, sure, I laugh at the headlines. I can’t help but to click on the story, to share the meme. I do have a pulse, and anyone breathing would have a hard time turning a blind eye or deaf ear to the train wreck that is Florida Man.

    But I’m also no dummy. I live in this state. I drive these highways. I know that all Floridians are just one mental lapse, wrong turn or “caught-on-camera” moment away from making headlines themselves.

    Speaking of headlines, my Florida man/woman friends, here are 11 of the most bizarre, Florida Man moments of 2018.
