Only in Florida, y'all

Greetings. Michael and I went up to Homosassa Springs to see manatees on Saturday; it was a lovely trip, but not particularly interesting from a blogging perspective. However, we encountered many local yokel Florida types of things on our journey which were much more amusing. The items spotted are listed below and are 100% true and not exaggerated at all. I swear to God.
  • A Jeep Liberty SUV towing a pickup truck (not on a flatbed or anything.... both cars wheels were on the road). Inside the pickup truck bed were a 2-wheel bike and a 4-wheeler. This was immediately followed, in the same lane on the highway, by:
  • A pickup truck full of plywood towing a car (not on a bed or anything.... both cars wheels were on the road)
  • A flat bed truck with a jacuzzi wedged diagonally on the bed. Not tied down properly. Jacuzzi was not covered or anything... the inside, jets, pipes, etc. all exposed
  • A Jeep Wrangler with the hatch open, HUGE ladder sticking out the back window. No red flag on the overhang
  • A pickup truck with two adults in the bed, chatting. I think one was shirtless, but that is unconfirmed
  • A pickup truck with a canoe/kayak sticking out of the bed, no tiedown or red flag visible on overhang
  • A school bus with blacked out windows towing a pickup truck. Inside the pickup cab were miscellaneous junk items, my favorite of which was a broken box fan. The school bus was stalled at a stoplight with its flashers on. The driver was a VERY SCARY looking man who hopefully did not actually drive children anywhere. He was checking things out but the light turned green and we got the hell outta dodge

Hahahaha. That's even worse than some of the insanity I see on the road around here. In fact, that's WAY worse. I'm sure Uncle Jim would get a good laugh out of this.
