WHO IS FLORIDA MAN?
Gary Duba’s having a bad day. There’s a snake in his toilet, a rabid raccoon in the yard, and his gal Krystal’s in jail for getting naked at a Waffle Castle and licking the manager. Gary is just a southern redneck living in a trailer down by the swamp, but he’s got dreams, big dreams. But it seems like every time he tries to get ahead, fate deals him a low blow.
Then one day he gets lucky…
Along with his best friend, Floyd, Gary sets out to sell his prized Barry Bonds rookie card to raise the five hundred bucks needed for Krystal's bail, but like always, things find a way of getting out of hand. In fact, Duba's got a way of getting caught in all the wrong places.
