Anyway, TJ's favorite thing to email me are the many wildly ridiculous and unbelievable stories that are produced by the population of my home state, Florida. Now, I'm fully aware that Florida is a disgusting cess pool of rednecks, immigrants, retirees, inbreds, annoying transplant northerners and people so dumb that they should have their genitalia removed via a blowtorch. I'm also well aware of what a joke Florida has become nationally because of its inhabitants. That's why I live two blocks from the beach and never, ever venture more than 20 miles inland unless I'm visiting Gainesville or Orlando (I even try to limit my Orlando trips now...It's like LA sans the whimsy...and if you replace the Mexicans with Puerto Ricans).

Ever since I met TJ and he figured out that we worked in similar capacities at similar organizations, we've spent far too much time emailing ridiculous stories to one another throughout our respective workdays. I do not believe I am alone here. I imagine TJ's typical workday consists of him looking up various "news articles" on the ebays and sending them off to any number of friends and former colleagues. Followed by him trolling youtube for approximately 4 hours, a long lunch (which may or may not include three beers) and finally, about fifteen minutes of real, actual work. So basically, TJ is like everybody else who works in the District of Columbia.
With all this said, TJ's decided that I should start posting some of these stories of Sunshine State absurdity semi-regularly here at G:TB. So, consider this post and it's various links the introduction to this new and, surely, short lived G:TB feature.
