God bless our local TV newscasters. They hustle day in and day out to bring you all the locally relevant information that you need to know. They tell you what the weather is going to be, where the latest car-jacking took place, and how much the watermelon that won the biggest fruit award at the county fair weighed.
But in between these journalistic moments there are inevitably gaffes, and, like NASCAR crashes, they are always the most entertaining part. Here are some of the best Florida news bloopers we could find.

Put that on the news!
This poor man. He's just trying to report the news, and the out of nowhere drunk Aunt Betty comes out swinging. I guess the good news is, when you get smacked in the dome with a purse on the job, your career can only go up.

Yo momma so fat, she got her own personal Doppler radar!
Yo momma so fat, she hear the morning traffic report and be like, "Jam?"
The Hank Tester shuffle.
Little-known fact: Hank Tester emits a pheromone that makes people want to get funky.
It's why he's not allowed to cover funerals anymore.
This clip didn't originate in Florida, but it does talk about Florida. And it's just too good to pass up.
I know we should wait until all the facts come out and let our justice system do its job, but -- come on -- the only thing that hamster is guilty of is being adorable.
Go fuck yourself, Miami.
That's actually considered a polite way to say farewell in Miami.
In her defense, it's very hot. Sometimes you just gotta say "fuck it" and get outta this joint.
