Floridians Google some strange shit

Someone has has been looking into our Internet search history, Floridians ... and it's kinda weird. Earlier this week, Estately took to Google Trends to find out "which words, terms, and questions each state was searching for more than any other." The aim of the research wasn't to discover the most Googled term in general (cause they all would have been "boobs," right?), but which Googled phrases were unique to each state.

Here's what Floridians were looking for:

  • Alligator Wrestling
  • Botox
  • Eyebrow Piercing
  • Hulk Hogan
  • Juviderm
  • Lice
  • Mazda Miata
  • MDMA
  • Obamacare
  • Stand Your Ground
  • Swingers
  • Viagra
  • What is sarcasm?

Some of these make perfect sense. Alligator wrestling AND Hulk Hogan? That is Florida in a nutshell. And if Hulk gets any more leathery, he'll end up with alligator skin anyway.

I mean, Florida is home to the Villages, the fastest-growing community in the U.S., filled to the brim with retirees, so Viagra's a search priority. So is "swingers," if the STD rumors are to be believed. And the super-cute convertible Mazda Miata, sure: because sometimes the Villagers just gotta get outta their golf carts and onto the open road.

But lice? Here in Florida? We don't have cold weather, so there are no hat-sharing worries.

And Juviderm. JUVIDERM?! Floridians can't even spell their injectable fillers correctly. At least we got Botox right.

But the one that saddens us the most is the fact that Floridians feel the need to Google "What is sarcasm?" Honey, if you don't already get it, the Internet's not gonna help. It's just gonna make fun of you.
