Might Florida Man finally be getting his act together?!?

For years, anyone referred to by this designation would be found trying to cash a $368 billion check… trying to have sex with a tree… or doing any one of number of other ridiculous activities.

But not Richard Jones.

This Sunshine State resident has gone vial as a result of the amazing photo captured in the video above, which depicts a raccoon riding on the back of an alligator at the Ocala National Forest.

"I snapped a lucky picture right when the gator slipped into the water and before the raccoon jumped off and scurried away. Without the context you’d think the raccoon was hitching a ride across the river. Pretty amazing," Jones told WFTV.

Something here seems amiss, though.

Perhaps the story is meant to read: Florida Man Caught Riding on the Back of an Alligator Shooting Raccoons While High on Flakka.

Yeah. That must be it.
