Can You Top This?

From the Sun-Sentinel:

Another strange, strange year in Florida

TALLAHASSEE — Chalk it up as another strange year in Florida.

There was the defendant who mooned a jury and the bank robber who used an Easter egg defense when he was caught red-handed. There were nude park rangers and a sex-crazed emu – thankfully not in the same place at the same time. All were among the dozens of bizarre events in 2003.

Yeah, it’s the state I proudly call home and the people I proudly serve. The only consolation is that I know there are as many other bizarre stories in every other state. If you have your own, please feel free to tell me about them; I’d hate to take all the glory.
