Florida is a land of liars! There. Let’s not mince words here.
I mean, you only have to LOOK at the shape of it. Everybody knows it’s one big fat penis. Even has some little cahones just southeast of Panama City. (Boy were they lost! Panama is like a whole other COUNTRY!)
And then there is that spume of something or other (I’ll not use the word) spilling forth, ending in something called “Key West.”
So, this must be the sexy, harlot-seeking, revelry bending, sex-pot o’ the Americas right? WRONG. It’s the home of the largest population of flabby flaccids in the nation. It’s the king of NO ERECTION here. Everybody’s old uncle Al and Grampa Bill retires to Florida. You could carpet the entire state with all the polyester draping these wrinkly old bodies! That and gaudy jewelry, red, red lipstick and hot pink toenail polish worn by blue-haired mammas strutting their stuff as they push their walkers down the board walks of Sarasota and West Palm Beach.
And then, get this, they invite Disney to build a theme park there to attract children and their parents! Now this is an explosive situation. Older-than-sin elderly, all gripping with a death hold their driver’s licenses, meeting head on (and I do mean that literally) with busy, we-only-got-three-days-to-see-it-all parents with three screaming under-the-age-of-ten monsters demanding to go to Sea World next!
The carnage is everywhere. Speed limits here are a minimum of 1 and maximum of 12, or as fast as your walker can wheel. And the stop lights? The cross walk is no man’s land for cars, for a solid 17 minutes. Did I mention that all these blue-bonnet lassies are towing a 15oz excuse for some dog? That slows things to a well, backward would actually be an improvement.
So wanna go their yet?
The state was the first to see Europeans, yet, it waited until 1845 to become a state of the union, exhibiting I guess a lot of questionable conduct. Ponce de Leon was the first to arrive and named it La Florida, or flowery land. No idea what the inhabitants who were already there called it. Home comes to mind.
The usual wars ensued when the English came around. Mostly they set English supporting tribes on Spanish supporting tribes. The English are good at getting others to do their dirty work.
Slaves regularly ran away to Florida, where the Spanish first converted them to Roman Catholicism, and then set them free. Never one to let an opportunity go by, the Catholics. The Treaty of Paris gave the mess to England, and the Treaty of Versailles gave it back to the Spanish. Spain gave it to the New U S of A, in exchange for us not meddling in Texas. (We lied. Note that as a pattern)
Once we owned it free and clear it was time to clean out the Indians (remember those people who called it simply “home.”). Three Seminole Wars later, the state was still not rid of them pesky red skins, and some of them took to the Everglades, where they are said to remain to this day.
With the discovery of how good cotton grows, the state changed it’s mind about freedom for Africans, and enslaved them again (remember we lie a lot) and put them to useful work in the fields. You all know how that story ended.
The state remained low in population until old people, who are always slow to get new things, discovered it was WARM there, and started their walker migration.
Florida suffers more lightning strikes than any place in the US. Most of those are to old men in golf carts. Gotta get that exercise you know. Wives exercise by lifting bloody marys in the club house. This means that over time, there are more old women than old men, and gigolos flock to retirement settlements to find an easy mark.
Hurricanes don’t deter these folks, mostly because Alzheimer’s robs them of any recall of the last one. Many are seen roaming around the malls with inflatable vests over their leisure suits, “just in case.” Nursing homes pass them out as the height of “chic” and the poor dears never know the difference.
There are some nice animals that live there, but this is overshadowed by all the icky reptiles.
Hanging chads. Need I say more?
On the plus side, it has the lowest incidence of earthquakes, so the penis will not be falling off it seems.
Two-thirds of the population was born in another state, so no point in asking directions anywhere. Chances are, they won’t know.
I could give you actual numbers, but let’s just say, it’s mostly white with a localized Cuban population. Not to be confused with Hispanic. Believe me on this. They are two totally different things.
Median age: OLDER THAN SIN
Religion: Very Catholic and when it’s not, it’s Jewish.
Economy: you know, oranges and grapefruits. Oh yeah, and tourists who come to look at all the old people.
Education: classes are held when they can get enough children together to fill a classroom.
My advice: Don’t waste your time. Most of the state will be under water in a few decades due to rising sea levels. The “Big Dick” will be reduced to a Pencil Dick by then.
If you are a girl gigolo and looking for a hot sugar daddy with deep pockets, just hang out at the mall and look for men whose belts are up under their armpits. And SCORE!
I lived in northern Florida for a few years, and it has its pros and cons. Warm weather, beautiful shores and wetlands, and plenty of culture are offset by hurricaines, fire ants, and mosquitoes the size of cats.
Yes, I did hear that the fire ants which were not native to the state are a real problem! I hate mosquitos too, and most reptiles. God made a mistake there, we could have done without them I think. lol
namelessneed here, N. Fort Myers, Florida
ROFL…that is not the point of these little items. Hope you enjoyed!
I think we should refer to Florida’s little cojones as “hanging chads” from now on.
Excellent idea Blisterina! I wish I had thought of that!
That is very funny.

Iowans sure know their geography; farmers got nothing to do nexcvept trying to sdtart t5herir old car, and study geography, most of the tme. Oh yeah, and invent new recipes, fall off ladders.
What would we do without iowa farm wisdoms.
I was a kid in next door Mobile Ala, where Fireants Illegally entered the USA on banana boats in the 1950’s; lot better than trying to swim in.
Yes Tony, we do have a lot of time on our hands, especially in the winter months when we seldom see civilization. lol..Take care and have a nice New Years!
I read what you said about Florida & thinking about it some..Maybe I could finally seek & find new agreeable terrain elsewhere. We could pack up Mom (a Florida octegenerian, you surely didn’t meet her in yr travels here(She’s, without a doubt the finest human being I’ve met,not blue,she’s a redhead,and younger than me))Yeah,We could set off to one utopia where the conscientious young & wiser old stand in a progessive alliance,where cultural diversity blossums, where for Christ’s sake christian ideals reign, and true tolerance & love for all are a given, where rich culture options & oppt’s meet our creative needs. And of course, the majestic natural beauty!
I know.. We’ll go to effin Iowa!
Thinking again,maybe I shouldn’t let one single friend,the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, & popcorn
sway me that way.
ROFL…well you all would be welcome here for sure, but I warn you we have a sled full of nuts, starting off with head nut Steve King. We have a new law allowing anyone with a gun permit to carry it anywhere as long as it’s visible. I think we may be past the point of redemption, but do as you wish. Best to you and your family for the New Year!
Ahhh, Rep King – you have a real jewel there Sherry.
Ain’t we just so lucky? I mean one could wish to live a lifetime without meeting such a freakin’ fool as our Steve King is. I hang my head in shame!
Ya a whole amusement park dedicated to a rodent. I thought yhe gulf side cool though….neat little bbq joints in the swamps
Jimmy, there is always an upside to those in the know like yourself. What kind of varmit are they eating in those bbq joints in teh bayou? I’m not thinking I would like the fare?
oh, kiddo… really good pulled pork and hushpuppies and some gator fritters and gumbo….ooohhh so good.
All sounds good except the gator fritters, but I would try them! lol..a good gator is a dead one I suppose!
Sounds like you may have just wrapped up an exicting vacation here in our Sunshine State. Or are steeling yourself for an upcoming journey.
On the upside, we can keep our driver’s licenses just as long as we want – deaf, blind, too-old-to-be-alive? Doesn’t matter – we just send in the check and we’re free to hit those highways – right up to 25mph if we want! Livin’ on the edge we are!
Cracking up Mo. I am glad you saw the obvious attempt to poke fun in a ridiculous way.
Ready to assemble cabinets still a buzz in the home improvement and remodeling market. What started as a convenient alternative to traditional furniture has exceeded the hype and has proven more than nice to offer price tags. Especially after the severe economic crisis the world has become more and more homeowners are now looking beyond the low process have to offer. And if you’re planning a renovation project, this article discusses the advantages of ready to assemble furniture.
I bet all those old folks are pretty quiet at home, though. I dream of the day I’m old enough to move to one of those old-people-only communities and get away from noisy neighbors.
LOL Infidel, I can see myself in one soon enough. I’m non too pleased with the idea, but age does it thing doesn’t it.
