Oh, you might think I’m embellishing that headline, that I’m gilding the weird news lilly. Nope.
Here’s a direct link, which is only one word different, and it’s a word that only adds to the fun of the story.
See? The headline is completely accurate, sourced to the police, and the police report adds even more weird news goodness:
- He was throwing things at passing motorists
- He told police he hadn’t slept for a week
- He also told police that his heart was not beating
If I made this all up, and put it in a short story or novel, you’d laugh me out of the room.
But if I said this took place in Florida, you’d nod your head and add it to the long list of Florida Man headlines. So maybe the weirdest thing about this weird story is it happened in Kentucky, instead.
Here’s to you, Kentucky Man–you may be a pioneer, one of the first to truly challenge Florida Man, but I hope you’re not the last.
