Suncoast Florida: Joke industry a sunshine sector

The Suncoast: Cliches clamber over cliches

Chances are the jokes about Florida will either have you laughing till you’re red in the face, or at least, red with embarrassment.

Here’s one for the grinfest:

“A man walked into a Florida bar with his alligator and asked the bartender: ‘Do you serve lawyers here?’


‘Good. One beer for me and a lawyer for my alligator’.”

And two others slightly less wholesome:

“Q. What’s the first thing an Florida State girl does when she wakes up in the morning?

A. Walks home.”


“Q. Why couldn’t the baby Jesus be born in Florida?

A: Because they couldn’t find 3 wise men or a virgin.”

See what I mean? Going by these, Florida might be the most gormless, loose-moraled place in the world.
