The ‘Florida Man Challenge’ is taking social media by storm and brightening everyone’s day.
The challenge has everyone googling “Florida Man” with their birth month and date to find out what kind of “Florida Man” they are based on the headlines that pop up. Take a pick from the stories highlighted in your search results to determine the “Florida Man” side of yourself.

According to Esquire magazine an authentic Florida Man incident should involve some, if not all, of the following: boneheaded criminal schemes, an outrageous disregard for common decency, unconventional encounters with police, nunchucks, public and/or outlandish sex acts, alligators and/or other reptiles, large-scale robberies of undesirable goods, Tasers, bizarre supernatural beliefs, and of course, rampant drug use.
So with that in mind, here’s some of the best we’ve seen so far:
- Florida man arrested for throwing pizza at father after finding out his dad helped birth him
- Florida man puts dragon lizard in his mouth, smacks people with it
- Drunk, machete-wielding florida man chases neighbor on lawnmower
- Florida man wearing crocs breaks into crocodile enclosure, gets bitten in the foot
- Neighbours complain about Florida man doing yard work naked, police say it is legal
- Florida man drunkenly called 911 to report his wife is a ‘black widow spider’
- Florida man arrested after chasing down neighbour with tractor
- Florida man attacked during selfie with squirrel
- Florida man arrested for throwing alligator through drive-thru window
