If you've been following Florida Man, you'll know some pretty crazy stuff happens in the Sunshine State. One creative interviewer decided to ask the cast of Star Wars VII if her quotes were a scenario from Star Wars, or if they were local Florida headlines. You'd be surprised by how hard it is to tell the difference.

Jasmine Tridevil, a Florida massage therapist, says she sought the surgery in part to make herself "unattractive to men" (Total Recall fanboys might be in trouble still) and hopes to score her own MTV reality show out of her notoriety. What a world we live in...

[UPDATE] Surprising absolutely no one, plastic surgeons chiming in are highly skeptical about the plausibility of this kind of story, and the video interview with Tridevil doesn't really help her case at all.

From NBC Miami:

A West Palm Beach, Florida, man listed his occupation on an arrest report as "drug dealer,'' police say.

Deputies say 25-year-old Robert Phillips was arrested Tuesday after he cut in front of an unmarked Palm Beach County Sheriff's car and nearly caused a crash. A records check found that Phillips was driving a stolen car.

As it turns out, you need a substantial amount of schooling to become a medical doctor. 18-year-old Florida teen Malachi Love-Robinson has been arrested for trying to skirt around that fact by simply impersonating one. According to the Charlotte Observer, this case is connected to a mysterious teen wandering the halls of a West Palm Beach hospital dressed as a doctor one year ago. 

This time it seems that he opened his own clinic. He went under the name Dr. Malachi A. Love-Robinson PhD, HHP-C, AMP-C according to his profile on the website for his clinic the New Birth New Life Medical Center and Urgent Care LLC. 

For those of you unfamiliar with medical certifications, HHP-C and AMP-C mean... nothing. But they do help him sound important! 

The website for the clinic he allegedly started is still active. It even has a picture of the doctors who work there that are definitely real people and not at all people dressed as doctors in a stock photo.

Love-Robinson is charged with practicing medicine without a license and is being held on $6,000 bail at the Palm Beach County Jail.

Thank You Florida, Now For Something Completely Different: An Alligator in Yoga Pants

You almost wish this headline was just click-bait. But unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you see it), this actually happened. A routine traffic stop turned bizarre is this week's Florida headline. A couple was pulled over in May after running a stop sign, and deputies asked them what they had been doing, and they responded searching for frogs and snakes to collect. The deputies asked them if they had any other creatures in the truck, and that is when things took a turn for the weird.The woman had over 40 turtles in a Ninja Turtles backpack, which was definitely an eye-opener. But that is not what shocked the officers. 

The woman in the truck, Ariel Le Quire, after being asked if she had anything else, promptly pulled a foot-long alligator from the yoga pants she was wearing, and placed it in the bed of the pickup truck. The pair were cited and a judge found little humor in her stunt. sentencing Le Quire to 6 months probation, 200 hours of community service, and required her to pay $500 to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. This was all for charges of possessing an American Alligator, transporting more than one turtle or turtle egg, one count of possessing a soft-shell turtle, and one count of possessing more than one turtle, per day. 

The woman was also homeless at the time, so it is uncertain how the court expects her to pay the fine. But internet ridicule is sometimes a better teacher than any monetary penance could be.

This 'Cool Mom', in Florida of course, arranged for a stripper to be the entertainment for her son's 8th birthday party. That's right, the child was turning 8-years old, and she got him a stripper.



In the long run, it's debatable which would be more damaging later in life, a stripper or a clown at your birthday party. My money would be on the stripper (literally) though.

In October, Josh James of Jupiter, FL threw a three and a half foot alligator into the drive through window of a local Wendy's restaurant. The authorities finally caught up with him and he has been arrested because apparently you're not allowed to go around town slinging large, dangerous reptiles at people.

Why would someone throw a three and a half foot alligator into a fast food restaurant? His mother told WPTV, "He's a prankster.  He does stuff like this because he thinks it's funny".

From the Tampa Bay Times:

When he was arrested at a Kmart in Hudson on Monday, the Pasco County Sheriff's Office said, Balmer, 50, was wearing a black shirt. Across the chest it said "Who needs drugs?"

Below that it said: "No, seriously, I have drugs."

And, the sheriff said, he had drugs.

If you saw that headline and didn't immediately think "FLORIDA," you haven't been paying attention.

Sean Petrozzino (above) inspired many in his fight with bacterial meningitis, which prompted surgeries to remove his infected hands and legs. Now, however, he's on the run and declared a "person of interest" after his parents were found dead in their home.

You can't make this stuff up.
