If Tiger King has taught us anything it’s that there is a ferocious appetite for news stories about people and animals acting badly and the wild happenstance of life. In that spirit each night during the 9 and 10 o’clock hour I enjoy playing a game with you, the listener, called Florida or Australia. The rules are simple: I’ll tell you about a news story on the air and you text or call in and tell me if you think the story happened in Florida or Australia.(because those two places seem to have a high concentration of craziness.) Here are tonight’s stories:

Escaped cow found trapped on neighbor's trampoline

Oct. 16 (UPI) -- One of about 40 cows that escaped from a farm in Victoria, Australia, was found less than a mile away after wandering onto a resident's trampoline and becoming stuck. Kay Laing South Gippsland said she spotted the cow on the trampoline outside her home Wednesday night and discovered the bovine was unable to stand up on the bouncy surface.

Florida Man Beats Bird Scooters at Their Own Game with a Leaf Blower and a Mop Bucket

For years, cities and entrepreneurs alike have been trying to solve that last-mile issue of how to travel short distances without getting back into a car. You could use your feet and plan appropriately for the extra walk time, but no. Sometimes you just need to get somewhere a little faster than that.

Be sure to tune in Monday through Friday nights at 9 and 10pm if you want to play along.
