I feel like a lot of crazy stuff seems to happen out of Florida, but maybe that's just because we pay attention to it more. But I wonder if the singling out of Florida has come from the 2000 presidential election debacle. I feel like making fun of Florida was really common after that and other topics since then have reinforced it...

often when you hear something ridiculous happening, it usually turns out to be in Florida. Hence the jokes about it. atleast from what i have seen.

I'm a bit late here, but Florida has a set of laws known as the Sunshine Acts that require extreme transparency in government. Among them, police reports have to be immediately revealed to the public. Because of this, it is very easy to find those crazy stories, while in other states it probably would've been more trouble than it was worth to find those wacky stories.
