We could all use more “Florida Man” with his crazy antics in our lives, and fortunately we have two of them running for president.

Marco Rubio has officially declared his candidacy, and Jeb Bush is expected to officially throw his hat in the ring soon, even though he sort of already let it slip a few weeks ago.

And so the Independent Journal Review took the next logical step and developed a new Chrome extension which replaces any instance of their names with “Florida Man.”

For example:



More importantly, it will also randomly swap all references to “Florida Man” with one of the two candidates, creating some amazing headlines like this one:


No that didn’t actually happen to Rubio. but it certainly makes reading about the already crowded Republican race much more entertaining.

Once you download and enable the program, head on over to Florida Man’s Twitter account for endless fun.

Well done, IJR, well done.

You're getting older, and so are your Facebook friends. As you grow into your 20s (even earlier, for some people), the apple-cheeked progeny of people you barely know will start pouring into your news feed like an organic-mattered tidal wave. There's no stopping it. It's nature. It's life.

Luckily, you CAN hide it. A brilliant new browser extension for Chrome, Unbaby, will comb your news feed for keywords like "year old" and "cute" and take offending posts down. You can even replace baby pictures with pictures of Your Most Favorite Thing in the World: cats, bacon, M.C. Escher, the list goes on.

There's been no backlash so far from would-be booster parents. Is this an extension that cruelly targets people who are rightfully proud of their newborn, or a welcome relief from oversharing?
