Weekends

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:

Naples man uses Kool-Aid packet to steal nearly $1,000 of merchandise - NBC2 News

Young used his trick on a $248 scooter, a $119.87 dual navigation system, and $160 worth of batteries.

Florida Man Dresses Up as Rambo, Shoots Up Bar, Still Gets Ass Kicked

Daniel Allen Noble of Flagler County had the "Uzi-style" assault weapon. He had the ammo. He had the bandanna and blades and the look of a badass. He had some patrons of the Europa Lounge in his sights. And then he had his ass handed to him by some burly Slavic bar-goers.

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