Florida Is the Joke of the Nation Again. At Least It Has Nothing to Do With Casey Anthony

For once, people are thankful they don't live in Florida for reasons that aren't related to bizarre murders.

This time, it's due to a semiviral internet meme that shows things you could find only in Florida.

When we say "only in Florida," we mean things like an alligator head in a stroller, a lizard eating Cheetos, or a group of deer with mailboxes for heads.

Sure, "only in Florida" does a 17-year-old kid allegedly murder his parents with a hammer so he can throw a Facebook party, and "only in Florida" does the Tea Party say protecting manatees is against the Bible.

But take a look at Buzzfeed's "40 Things You'll Only See in Florida" and you probably won't deny that any of the photos were taken in the Sunshine State.

Our sister paper to the south, Miami New Times, recommends that you show off gaudy Florida-themed jewelry to combat the "only in Florida" meme, which, mind you, would probably happen only in Florida.

But remember, most of the absolutely shocking things around the country that you hear about in the news happen "only in Florida."

The I in Internet is ALWAYS capitalized. It is a proper noun, not a common noun. Jeez.

New Times has certainly become the Joke of Broward County. We have net growth in population. Which for you birdbrains at New Times, means that more people are moving here than leaving.

FL the joke of the nation?  The only joke in FL is the the Broward/Palm Beach New-Times writers that replaced Bob Norman.

That's Mr. Internet to you.
That's Mr. Internet to you.

Actually that depends on the in-house style rules at a given publication or news outlet. At New Times, it's "internet."

Oh come on, I once thought that way also, but Matt is doing the best he can under the editors guidelines. Plus have you seen Bob's new column? Articles are too short and too far between for me and I dont watch local TV news.

people who read an article and criticize spelling or capitalization really aren't worthy of consideration.

If you get your "news" from New Times, then you deserve everything you get in life.
