The term “Florida Man” has become a common thread among headlines taken from the Sunshine State. Florida, as you may well know, is home to some of the most bizarre and outrageous news stories.
Take, for example, these gems:
Florida Man, drunk and naked, allegedly set house on fire in failed cookie baking attempt.
Florida Man attacks nephew over undercooked noodles.
Florida Man accused of breaking into alligator farm is attacked by crocodile, leaves Croc shoe behind.
But the trope isn’t just for Florida’s male residents:
Florida Woman mistakes 37-week pregnancy for bad Chinese food.
Lindsey Tuttle of Tampa, Florida, is a Sunshine State native. She is also nine months pregnant. But she didn’t want to partake in a traditional, run-of-the-mill maternity shoot.
So Lindsey decided to center her maternity photos around the “Florida Man” headlines she’s come to love so much, if for no other reason than their sheer ridiculousness.
Lindsey and her husband thought the theme would make for a hilarious snapshot, but she never expected it to go massively viral.
