All That’s Missing From This Story Is an Alligator, a Golf Cart, and Several Kilos of Cocaine: Approaching Peak Floriduh! Man

Welcome to the Gunshine State!

Is that a GLOCK in your orgy party outfit pocket or are you just happy to see me?

Take it away Daytona Beach News-Journal!

A 9 mm Glock was taken from a bedroom during a sex party, in which guests wore masks during the orgy and were encouraged to use code names, deputies say

A handgun was swiped from a Deltona home during a weekend sex party and the gun owner couldn’t give detectives any names of possible suspects because the culprit — like the 20 or so other guests at the party — was wearing a mask, deputies said.

“We’re probably not going to solve this one,” Volusia County Sheriff’s Sgt. Todd Smith said during a public meeting Thursday. “And DNA (identification) is not going to be an option.”

The 9 mm Glock was holstered and lying on top of a nightstand in the master bedroom when it was stolen, the homeowner told deputies. It was taken during an orgy, in which the theme was anonymous sex, according to a report.

Guests who were invited to the party near Saxon Boulevard were encouraged to “come and go as they pleased” throughout the weekend and were told to bring friends and acquaintances if they so desired, the report stated.

Additionally, guests were told to use fictitious names or no name at all, the homeowner told the Sheriff’s Office.

The orgy took place July 19-21 and deputies were contacted a few days later. On July 26, the detective assigned to the case called the homeowner for more information, but he seemed “apprehensive” about giving further details.

The homeowner eventually told the detective that 20 or so people were in his house that weekend and he guessed that he only knew five or six of them, the report stated.

The party was advertised on a social media site, deputies said.

All this needed to achieve peak Floriduh! Man is an alligator, a golf cart, and several kilos of cocaine!

    I hate to ask, but did they use condoms?! DID THEY PRACTICE SAFE GUN SEX?!?! /cries

    Maybe next time they’ll just play a healthy, happy game of Twister.

    In the meantime, the porn parody of this story should be uploaded to YouPorn in about five days. I hope they get Dillion Harper to play the klutzy maid.

    Interesting. And the guy was entirely too trusting, on many levels.

    But when I saw your title, I thought it was going to be about this:

    sillyclucker • 11 minutes ago

    This happened today. A friend of mine in FL was in a Bass Pro in Gainesville. He heard gunshots and ran out, along with everyone else. Found out that the shots (2 of them) were accidently fired by an idiot while the gun was in his pants pocket. He shot himself twice in the leg. Did he see himself as a bad guy with a gun and took himself out ? We may never know.

    Hmm…

    Cheers,
    Scott.

    People have done studies on why Florida ends up being so… crazy. It’s a combination of 1) insane land development / usage that creates a transitory – and often emotionally unstable – population, 2) mixture of clashing ethnic cultures, 3) a conflict of aging/wealthy retired population vs. younger poor, 4) influx of transplanted libertarianism with a strong anti-government vibe sharing power with a corrupt conservative local governance, 5) whatever electromagnetic forces that one crazy guy used to build that Coral Castle without heavy machinery.

    The “party” sounds like an excellent way to contract a myriad of STDs in one fell swoop.

    They know it was someone at the party. It’s not that hard to interview people who were there. (Of course, since it was broadcast on the web, there’s a little more difficulty in figuring out who was there, but still it’s not like they have no clues at all…)

This tweet would seem to indicate that it’s a satire or parody account, but I can’t find anything to suggest it’s not legit. Funny if it’s just a spoof; much less so if it’s Kim trolling Trump. I mean, it’s an epic troll, but seems to me Trump is so fucking unstable that a few million people could end up dead.

    Some of the harshest reviews came from those who thought the taste was too weak rather than overpowering. “There isn’t the regular aftertaste you get from eating durian,” said one diehard durian fan and Singapore native. “It’s a good starter for people who don’t really like durians. But I like my durians strong and smelly. This does not cut it.”
