I visited Florida twice and tried not to be a nuisance while I was there. The landscape was fascinating. I like winter, however, so I'm happy to live up North. It's amazing how many people who live up here regard winter as the season to gripe for four months about how they hate snow and ice and cold, but so be it.

Also, there are some predictions that much of Florida will be underwater by 2100, so maybe we should enjoy it while we can.

Southern Louisiana - 200 Years ago, most of it was known as West Florida

Florida! Where people with high net-worths are somehow unable to complete their financial documents!

Writing your name, address, social security number, and signing and dating a piece of paper: NOT COMPLICATED.

As someone who grew up in Florida, this is an extremely accurate description of the state.

God forbit I ever have to go back there.

Florida does one thing right, no state tax! You got to love a place that believes they shouldn't tax your hard earned income.

Florida: Come on vacation, leave on probation.

Ooh ooh, do Michigan next, was 100*+ last July and we have had 4 blizzards and below 0 temperatures this winter, plus we were in a recession for ten years longer than the rest of the country! Michigan, only the strong survive!

There's a song about Australia, I don't think anyone mentioned that yet. Is there a song like that about Florida? The keywords are "Australia", "dangerous", and "song". I'm writing from Scotland, which right now is colder than it should be.

Florida sounds like Far North Queensland

Florida: ಠ_ಠ

I have lived in Florida all my life. Grew up in the Keys, moved to and currently live in Miami, college in Orlando, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Orlando was hot as hell during the summer, but that's about it. We've got some annoying crap, mosquitoes and traffic being some of the top contenders, but I agree with Rokas in having heard many New Yorkers that live here complaining that it's so much better up there. GTFO!
Also, Atlanta traffic was worse than anything I have experienced and my trip to New York in the summer had me begging for Florida heat instead of walking down the streets like a zombie looking for "We have A/C" signs.
But yes, the comic was funny :P

Now you can add "Giant Rat-Sized Snails" to the list.
