When you think of Florida, you probably think of the most ridiculous news story imaginable, involving skeevy people with large criminal records but a small amount of teeth doing things like almost blowing up an ICU by trying to smoke crack or biting off a man’s ear because he wouldn’t give him a cigarette. (Both true stories.)
Florida is that, but also so much more. This week we discuss and debate the beautiful weirdness that makes Florida a state we love and perhaps sometimes would like to saw off the rest of the US ala Bugs Bunny.
And it’s Part One of our Mix-Up Episodes. This week it’s Michael and Jeff doing the debating, while Richard feels the immense power trip of judging and tries to legally marry Jeff to his cat.
