You’ve seen the memes. In fact, you’ve probably taken the Florida Man Birthday Challenge – the one where you enter your birthdate and “Florida man” in Google and see what whacky headlines pop up: “Florida Man Strips Naked After Car Crash.” “Florida Man Mistakes Birdbath for Pool.” “Florida Man Sets House on Fire While Scaring Gators Away.”
Funny, right? There’s a headline for every occasion.
What often goes unsaid is that while the meme is entertaining, it’s also pretty unfair.
