Florida Man State of Mind

Pickle-Packing Perv Popped On Private Premise
Florida Man, 47, arrested for public pleasure session


This story from Smoking Gun has everything a Smoking Gun story is supposed to have. There are cops and stupid crooks. The stupid crooks are doing perverted things. The incident takes place in Florida. The crook resides in a mobile home park. He has a tattoo that says, “Only God can Judge Me.” The piece de resistance is that for people of my generation the incident inevitably leads to an ear worm. For those unfamiliar with the concept or the song, here you go. Last tag!

An earworm, sometimes referred to as a brainworm,[1]sticky musicstuck song syndrome,[2] or, most commonly after earworms, Involuntary Musical Imagery (INMI),[3][4][5][6][7] is a catchy and/or memorable piece of music or saying that continuously occupies a person’s mind even after it is no longer being played or spoken about.[8][9] Involuntary musical imagery as a label is not solely restricted to earworms; musical hallucinations also fall into this category, although they are not the same thing.[4][10] Earworms are considered to be a common type of involuntary cognition.[11] Some of the phrases often used to describe earworms include “musical imagery repetition” and “involuntary musical imagery”.[1][12][13]


Arlo Guthrie performing the motorcycle song

I dont want a pickle
I just wanna ride on my morotcycle
And I dont want a tickle
I’d rather ride on my motorcycle

I’m gonna guess we’re not talking a Gherkin. I can hear the police command now, “Drop that pickle!”
