The mullet toss

The Flora-Bama is a bar right on the Florida/Alabama line.

Each Spring a crowd gathers at the Flora-Bama for the annual interstate mullet toss.

A mullet is a kind of fish. You pay $15 to stand in Alabama and see how far you can chuck a slippery dead mullet into Florida. Winners get mullet trophies and Flora-Bama gift certificates. The entry fees go to charity. The mullet are fed to the birds.

For those of you looking down your noses, I don’t see that this is much dumber than any other festival people use as an excuse to drink.

  1. Why is everyone so down on Mullets? Bring back the eighties! Flock of Seaguls… and Spandex! Though … it would not be right if I were sporting anything of these gashion items… lets leave that for the younguns.
