This former Downtown Disney/Planet Hollywood employee threatened to blow-up the joint last night after being fired. Oh, and he also claims to be the devil.

Can't you just feel the excitement in the air? Lawmakers passed a bill last week to make the "Gopher Tortoise" the official state turtle and the "Florida Cracker" the state horse. Key Lime is also now officially the state pie.

...but she's still going to pack up her big hair and head to the Amway arena when Bruce Springsteen comes to town. Here's the word from one "less fortunate" guy in the parking lot before last night's concert. He's not makin' any excuses about how he's going to spend that dollar you give him. (which is why I always opt to give Nutrigrain bars and Capri Suns instead of loose change).

Thanks to the Orlando Weekly for this article about the Waterford Lakes Grandfather who spends his days making lacy, frilly skirts to sell online.

Lawmakers have been very busy helping us shed that pesky "Floriduh" image that's been haunting us for years. The first exciting news came this week with the passing of the "Bestiality Bill" in the state Senate. And now, just to show the world we mean bidness - a ban on "Truck Nutz." Check it out, from the Orlando Weekly.

Human-animal sexual relations are one step closer to being banned in Florida. The Senate just passed the Bestiality Bill. So to answer your next question, yes, up until this point, it was OK to do "THAT" with your Golden Retriever.

Mitch English and I were at Seminole Community College today, molding young minds and shaping the future of America. I always know we're on an important mission when Mitch wears a tailored suit (and not the one with the stapled sleeves).

OK, admittedly this picture was taken 150 miles away from Orlando in West Palm Beach - but OH, is it Tacky Fabulous! 66 year-old-shiny-blue-suit-wearin' Robin Leach on a stripper pole. As TMZ calls it, "Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless." 'Nuff said.

"Enter at Your Own Risk" is pretty much the official slogan of Sanford, and you can find that fancy sign all around town, from the Bait Shops to the Veggie Stands. Which begs the question, "What's so risky about them there green beans?"

I must admit, I was lured in by the graffiti-like promise of roasted peanuts at this Bait and Tackle shop in Sanford. However, my euphoria quickly turned to fear as I saw the "Enter at Your Own Risk" sign. I started to imagine the possibilities...hungry alligators? packs of angry pit bulls?

Let me preface this by telling you how much I love the Orlando Sentinel. I love the look of it, the feel of it, and the taste of it. I use it as wrapping paper. I love the font. I love the people who work there - they are like my second family. I love the fact that they've squashed every rival publication to secure their place as the only daily newspaper in town. (Right?) I love everything about them except for one thing:

For example, they appear to have a gym. I'm pretty sure those are weight lifting machines and benches.
