The linked report claims that “police say he was acting erratic,” but I say let those among us who has not been arrested after stealing a car, waking up the next day in another state, naked, in a chicken coop, cast the first stone.

Sometimes, Florida Man acts as though he thinks he’ll never get arrested again, which seems… unwise.

“Do better” is internet code for “stop enjoying things I don’t like.” Which is clearly not Florida Man’s style.
