    Florida. Of course it's Florida. Maybe the culprit is a tire dealer.

    'Mad Nailer' deliberately scattering roofing nails on a portion of Florida's US 1
    Fox News, Mar 16 2018

    Officials in a central Florida town are trying to nail a "Mad Nailer" who is deliberately scattering roofing nails along the portion of U.S. 1 that goes through their community. Oak Hill city commissioner Bill Lindlau wrote on Facebook, "There seems to be a 'Mad Nailer' operating in Oak Hill. He/she is throwing nails out at intersections along US 1. It has been going on for some time." The nails have been responsible for flattening a number of tires, include one belonging to the wife of Oak Hill Mayor Doug Gibson. Gibson ordered the purchase of three magnetic rollers to scoop up the nails. So far hundreds have been collected. David Lee told WOFL he has spent more than $4,000 fixing and replacing tires on his work trucks due to the nails. "They keep doing it. They don’t give up. They just keep putting the nails out," he said.

    Florida. Yes, Florida again. I can hear the lawyer now: "Sir, you have no basis for charging my client with stealing sand. Doesn't all sand look alike? Here are five grains of sand. Three came from the beach and two came from my client's property. Can you tell them apart?"

    The 26-foot-tall statue depicts Marilyn in a pose from The Seven Year Itch -- and the members of the nearby Congregational Church are probably itching to have it removed.

    The people of Florida do not have a monopoly on doing weird things. Check out this story and video of a crazy wacky kooky zany Minnesotan:

    Florida. Again. And yes, a miniature horse can be considered a service animal. I wonder if I would be allowed to bring my service leopard and my service walrus into my local McDonald's.
