The game 'Florida Man' has gone viral in the US. The challenge started with a simple game: type "Florida Man" followed by your birthday to find out what headline turns up.

According to USA Today, the challenge became a social media joke that plays upon the plight of Florida residents who find themselves in strange predicaments.

Florida Man is an Internet meme, popularized in 2013, in which the phrase “Florida Man” is interpreted as the name of a fumbling superhero in multiple unrelated news articles, rather than a description of various actual people who hail from or live in Florida.
The meme was originated in February 2013 by the Twitter feed @_FloridaMan, which quoted news headlines containing the words "Florida man", such as "Florida man run over by van after dog pushes accelerator" or "Police arrest Florida man for drunken joy ride on motorized scooter at Wal-Mart."

And netizens can’t stop playing the game.Here are some odd examples.

Nov. 7: Florida man jumps into alligator pit, gets bit, claims he was held captive.
Dec 26: Florida man attacks ATM for "giving him too much money".
What’s your "Florida Man" story? Or have you ever made your own "Florida Man" story?
