You might've noticed that many (most?) of our "Today's Dumbasses" come from Florida. For whatever reason, more bizarre things happen in the Sunshine State than all other states, possibly combined. Here's a few stories from over the weekend.
1. Man Doesn't Realize He's Been Shot
More than a million people attend Miami's Calle Ocho Festival. With all that excitement and commotion, it's easy to become distracted...like the guy who got shot in the ass and then walked away, thinking he was fine until he passed out from the bleeding.
2. Does Florida Hate St. Patrick's Day?
Officials forced bar owners to take down their Irish flag because it violates a city ordinance. Businesses in Atlantic Beach can only display American flags...you know, America, the country founded on freedom of speech?
3. Drinking On The Job
Yeah, Florida's strange, but sometimes it's awesome. Like the Port Orange healthcare company that offers employees "Beer Cart Fridays." (A cart stocked with brewskis rolls around the office.) Plus, employees receive a "Get Out of Jail Free" card for a paid day off, so they can start drinking at work on Friday and stay at home hungover on Monday.
