Florida man January 28 2011 – Florida man catches world record sea snake whilst fishing for lobster
On January 28th 2011, a Florida man caught the world’s longest sea snake whilst out fishing for lobsters. The Florida man had dropped the fishing net to a depth of 100m, which is unusually shallow when trawling for lobster in winter as the lobsters generally lower to the 900m mark during cold seasons. The net alarm sounded and the Florida man thought he had caught a large group of lobsters, and when the net was lifted out of the sea to his astonishment there was an incredibly large sea snake in the net alone.
The sea snake was weighed and measured before being cast back into the ocean with a tracking tag and camera, to see where the snake resides and if there are more of the same species in a nest. The sea snake weighed 28 times more than the previous largest snake, weighing in at almost 28 metric tonnes. Guinness world records refused to accept the photos and videos of the captured sea snake, as they were not present at the time and could not verify the real size and weight in person.

Florida man January 28 2021 – Florida man claims he is the son of Willy Wonka
On January 28th 2021, a Florida man claimed he was the real life son of Willy Wonka, from the film Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory. The Florida man, who was aged 28 at the time of writing, told us that he was born in the factory and raised by umpa lumpas before falling into the river and exiting the factory in chocolate bar wrapping.
After his fall into the river, the Florida man traveled across 28 different countries before finding himself in Sweden, and was raised by a foster family who changed his name to Sven Ulrekson.
After living in Sweden until he was 28, he finally came out to the media in search of his long lost father, Willy Wonka, before finding out that Willy Wonka is actually a fictional character. The Florida man is now being treated for schizophrenia in Sweden.
Wow, a Florida man and his huge snake, a Florida man enslaved and a schizophrenic Florida man all on the same date in history. It’s safe to say January 28th is not a historically good day for the Florida man!
