Do you believe that the stars specify your fate? I don’t. But this internet challenge got me to rethink my notion. Even if for a little while. I merely didn’t want to miss out on the fun everyone’s having on Twitter. And tumblr. And pretty much everywhere on the internet. People are googling the word “Florida Man” plus their birthday( the year is optional) and the news article or storeys that show up in the results are what defines their future. Mine was “Squirrel strikes Florida man, rodent was raised by neighbor.” Classic Florida man. Scroll down to check out what others got and tell us your fortune in the comments!
The ‘Florida Man‘ meme grew popular after someone created an entire Twitter report, dedicated solely to compiling information headline descriptions of bizarre domestic incidents involving a male subject living in the district of Florida.

Now, the Florida Man even has his own subreddit with 443 k readers. The meme is even penetrating popular culture. On February 2nd, 2015, filmmaker Sean Dunne secreted a documentary titled “Florida Man, ” which features interviews with eccentric residents of the offbeat country. Moreover, on March 10 th, 2015, the Orlando Sentinel reported that the Tampa-based spacecraft brewery company Cigar City Brewing has propelled a beer brand named “Florida Man Double IPA” in tribute to the meme, with the bottle parcel featuring a photoshopped image of Ricky Lee Kalichun’s mugshot from @_FloridaMan’s Twitter profile picture.
