What did "Florida Man" do on your birthday?

The question forms the basis of the "Florida Man Challenge," which has people Googling the phrase "Florida Man" and their birthday to see what crazy hijinks the residents of the Sunshine State got up to that day. 

For example, July 15 turns up the headline, "A 71-year-old Florida man tied a gun to a weather balloon to fake his own murder, police say."

March 21 shows, "Florida man shoved woman because he wanted to eat egg rolls in her house, claims she slammed him."

Feb. 20? "Florida man attacks gas station clerk with hot dogs, corn dog stick over beer, cops say."

The Florida Man meme originated on Twitter years ago, where the account @_FloridaMan shares "real-life stories of the world's worst super hero." Every headline includes the phrase "Florida Man."
