I thought the Florida tag was for when we did something stupid not when we act in a reasonable manner.

No, it's for everything Florida.  Which gives the aforementioned impression though.

I was in FL last week. Looked at some property on the St Sebastian River.

Anyone who looks down their nose at FL is crazy. That place is beautiful. Yes the downsides are obvious: you are either stuck behind some 87 year old millionaire making a left turn with his right turn blinker on, or being panhandled / robbed by a tweaker from Michigan, but for the most part there's a decent culture and history there if you look for it. And there is no mistaking the natural beauty. Stay away from the Tampa-Ft Meyers corredor, Orlando, and most of Miami, and you will be fine.

I got married in St. Augustine, that little town is great.   Everytime I'm there I get the bug to buy a vacation home.

Hello cool cats and rad chicks! For years, it was thought the the recordings of Ponce De Leon had been lost forever! But now, his original recordings have been found in a basement of a Florida retirement complex and we've digitally remastered them! For the first time since your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grea t-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandpar ents time, you too can hear the music of America's first singer songwriter! For just $29.99(*), you'll hear all the classics:

What a penis shaped place this is!

You must have found the fountain of youth, my dear

Spring Break! Spring Break! (Your coat of armor would look better on my bathroom floor)

These Accursed Bugs Will Eat Us Alive

I'm in the Land of a Mouse-themed Amusement Land

and two more songs were too lazy to type....

Act now! Prison operators are standing by. Waiting to take your personal information and credit card information. Buy two! They make excellent gifts and you won't find yourself on the Shiv List. Be sure to specify whether you want 8 track tape, gramophone roll or Bernoulli Disk format.

Act now!

He may not want to be immortalized seeing as he has been living near West Palm Beach since 1901. Why the Hell do you think Jupiter Island is worth $1,000,000,000 when it's nothing but a small sand bar?
