6 Examples of Really Freaky Things I Saw While Vacationing in Florida
Last week, I hit the road for a one week reprieve from work. Wanted to hit the beaches in my homeland of F. L. A. On the way down, I started noticing some freaky crap on the highways and at the Hotel we stayed at. Here’s a chronicling of some of the weirdness I witnessed. Next time you vacation, make sure you snap more than just photos of goofy ass poses and sunsets. Trust me, there’s some bizarre things out there... especially in Florida.
I knew the exact moment we hit Kentucky. NOT because of the big blue “Welcome To Kentucky” border sign, I was alerted to my Kentucky arrival by this van driving next to us. Note that it’s an air conditioning unit normally found in a home or a building. You can't help but appreciate this extremely advanced hillbilly ingenuity though!
I thought the AC Unit mounted on the van in Kentucky was unusual, that is until I drove across Tennessee state lines and came across this. Now I’ve heard of hauling Boats, Mowers or Campers down the road in a trailer... but a plane? Something just doesn’t sound safe about parking your truck, piecing together your airplane like a set of Legos and then taking off to soar in the clouds. No sir, that’s f’d up.
I met “Scooby Doo” (which is how he formally introduced himself) in the pool at our hotel. Scooby has a very unusual tat. On his full-figured open heart surgery scarred pot belly he has the front end of a pig. This tattoo is multidimensional. The large man turned around... not to show me his sexy fat behind--but more to show off the rear half of his Pig tat. Damn it! I never did ask him why they called him Scooby.
It's just not a relaxing Florida vacation until you stumble upon a European guy in a Speedo. Nothing real unusual about a dude in a Speedo. I mean he was frolicking in and among the water with his two daughters. At least I think they were his daughters. One appeared to be between 8 & 9, the other appeared to be between 14 & 15. What was particularly bothersome was his “close” relationship to the 14-15 yr old daughter (if it was his daughter at all). Lets just say they could’ve been confused for boyfriend & girlfriend. To her credit she DID call him “Pa-Pa” but she called him this while continuously straddling him around the waist and neck. Maybe there is some sort of daddy/daughter relationship thing in Europe I’m missing, but it sure was creepy.
I found myself at Gulf World in Panama City and came across a Dolphin with some sort of Scoliosis. Poor Dolphin looked as if some super strong evil powered villain had just grabbed both ends of the poor creature and crushed it till its spine looked like an accordion. Watching it swim around the secluded tank was mildly amusing though and I knew right away why it was teased by the other Dolphins. You see, freaky shaped Dolphins are not allowed to play any Dolphin games with the other super talented jumping leaping, waving, splashing, more streamlined & popular Dolphins. Socially shun the ugly - see, they are just like us.
I failed to be careful on this one and probably drew too much attention to a guy who was really not afraid to keep living life, despite the fact that he was down only one leg and still living dangerously. I know it’s rude to yell “Look, a dude with only one leg, quick get me my camera” but really… how many times have you been lying on a beach and a guy with only one leg flies by you? Doesn’t happen everyday people…just sayin’
