The internet is showing its appreciation for the unique news stories that come out of the great State of Florida.

And now, the "Florida Man" challenge has taken social media by storm: search the term and your birthday to uncover weird goings-on that took place while you were celebrating.

If you've spent any time on the internet, you know there's a difference between "a man from Florida" and "Florida Man". Then, they must post the result on social media much to the delight of others.

But beneath it all, there's sometimes a deeper element at play in many of these "Florida man" stories - one, that's no laughing matter.

Someone else bragged that her "Florida Man" is "wholesome" because he broke into a neighbor's home 'to pet their cat'.

That certainly explains things, but doesn't make the Florida Man birthday challenge any fun to try.

However, since the newest study does not have alcohol and tobacco in the equation, it's become far more concerning for most of us. The study of over 500,000 people found those who drink tea at 60°C or more were nearly twice as likely to develop the condition.

A social media challenge is encouraging people to look up what version of Florida Man they are based on their birthdays.

Once people starting catching wind of this hilarious game, Twitter became flooded with people haring their own Florida Man stories, and each one seems more ridiculous than the last.

The results from the search are your "Florida Man" story. The state has a 'Sunshine Law, ' which guarantees that all public records of government bodies are available to the public.

Florida's population stands at more than 21 million people.

Under the right circumstances, couldn't we be tempted to follow in the footsteps of "Naked Florida man revealed on video sneaking into restaurant and munching on ramen"?
