Why I Love Florida, Part 473

Why?  Because, as Hunter Thompson once said, “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”

And Florida is all pro.

You know you’re living in a weird state when the governor promotes a pay-per-minute sex chat line.

Or when a congressman asks the House speaker to move a day’s worth of votes so he can watch a college football game.

Or when employees at not just one, not two, but three state prisons use stun guns on their kids as part of “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.”

That’s Florida, once again making people snicker at its dumb criminals, strange animals and all-around oddness.

Go here for the rest of the story.
