Why Are There So Many “Florida Man” Stories?

Why Are There So Many

In the last few years there has been a large amount of Florida man stories.  Most of these peculiar stories are about a man from Florida or in Florida doing some ridiculous  crimes, like in February of 2016 a man from Florida threw a 3 1/2 foot alligator through a Wendy’s drive-thru window. The strangest part is that the original reporters called the alligator a deadly weapon. More recently people have been intentionally doing these crazy actions to make headlines. These stories will most likely keep going for a long time.
