As if herpes and irritable seagulls weren't enough, Fort Lauderdale spring breakers can now add another potential hazard to their list of things to avoid on the beach.

Categories: Crime, WTFlorida

Last week, our sister paper had a story about a Florida man so terrified of spiders, he decided to get a giant tattoo of one on his face.

As a sort of inked-up reverse psychology that he'll probably regret when he's an old man. Or when he tries to grow a beard.
