The Weirdest Florida-Related Terms Defined in Urban Dictionary

A few years ago, we looked up the weirdest Miami-related terms in Urban Dictionary and realized there's  a whole set of Florida-related terms. The internet's favorite depository for slang definitions did not disappoint when we went digging for the oddest Sunshine State slang. 

Here are our favorites, excluding most of the sexual positions we're pretty sure nobody has performed anyway. (Though, if you're interested, search "Tallahassee" in Urban Dictionary. That poor town has more fake sex acts named after it than perhaps anywhere else on Earth.) 

Florida baptism 

The act of dropping a baby on its head in a Walmart. Ensures another generation of Floridians will flourish in the great state.

Tampa nublet

Street slang for the stump left after the removal of a finger or toe with a cigar cutter.

Historically, this was popularized by the crime family of Sicilian-born Santo Trafficante Sr. in the Tampa Bay area during the mid-20th-century.

Modern-day street gangs in the Tampa Bay area continue the practice against rival gang members, though the use of a cigar cutter may or may not be used as a matter of personal choice in style.
