The latest internet challenge is going viral for its hilarious results.
Basically, the challenge asks “What’s your Florida man story?”
To participate, all a person needs to do is search “Florida man” followed by the month and day of your birthday.
The challenge originated when a Tumbler post last week asked the Florida man question.
The first story that is listed on the results page is your ‘Florida Man’ story.
EVERYBODY google “florida man” followed by your birthday (florida man august 22) and tell me what you get. mine is Florida Man tries to attack neighbor with tractor

The reason for the challenge is not known, but it could have been birthed by a person who noticed a weird number of truly weird news stories about Florida men.
Some of the top Florida man stories on CBS Miami include:
- Florida Man Attacked by Neighborhood Squirrel Who Has Residents On High Alert
- Florida Man Makes Beer Run With Large Gator In Hand
- Florida Man Says He Went ‘Bananas’, Shot Out Utility Workers’ Tires
- Florida Man Caught With Nearly 200 Illegal Lobsters
- Miami Police Shoot, Kill Florida Man Eating Another Man’s Face
- ‘Kill ‘Em With Kindness’: Florida Man Stabs Neighbor with Machete Named ‘Kindness’, Say Police
And, there are plenty more.
This reporter did her ‘Florida Man’ story and found:
“Florida Man Sentenced To Prison For Illegal Diet Pill Scheme”
Not the best for hilarity, but the story has some redeeming qualities.
John Wesley Hoag was sentenced to fifty months in federal prison for his scheme to sell illegal and mislabeled diet pills to victims throughout the United States, and was also ordered to pay a fine of $7,500 and to forfeit all property traceable to the gross proceeds of the scheme, including but not limited to $679,116.33.
There was also this one:
