Florida Man keeps giving inert grenades to Goodwill.

Any other state, I’d be wondering if this is domestic terrorism. But, well, Florida. When they finally find the guy who keeps dropping these off, dollars to donuts he’s gonna be legitimately shocked at the news that he’s in trouble.

For the second time in a year, a grenade landed — but did not detonate — at a Goodwill store in Port St. Lucie, police said. 


Officers evacuated the store for 90 minutes. A bomb squad technician determined the grenade was inert. 

A similar scene played out at another Goodwill store in the 1600 block of Southwest St. Lucie West Boulevard on July 27.

I didn’t think it’d be a problem, he’ll say. They’re labeled ‘inert,’ he’ll say. And the cops will all start to feel that special Florida Cop Migraine go online.

PS: I grok that the Florida Man thing is merely a reflection of the fact that Florida reports all of this stuff pretty thoroughly. But still.

    “You mean Goodwill hasn’t been able to sell them and I don’t get to write them off on my tax returns as donations?”. O_O

  • acat says:

    …. does Florida report when non-inert grenades are dropped off?
    Not armed ones, I mean, just .. non-inert.
    “Uncle Jimmy took that off a dead [wog] during [war], claimed it helped him sleep better. He died, I’m cleaning out his condo.”

    If the Florida Man meme doesn’t have a cover to “Particle Man” yet, it should.
