The Best Shots ‘30 Rock’ Ever Took at Florida

‘30 Rock’ slandered the Sunshine State long before it was cool
The Best Shots ‘30 Rock’ Ever Took at Florida

Of all the 50 states in the union, there is, perhaps, no single colony more dumped upon in modern times than that of Florida — or, as Jack Donaghy calls it, “America’s Australia.”

Long before the dawn of the “Florida Man” meme turned the Sunshine State into the internet’s most phallic punching bag, Tina Fey and her writers at 30 Rock were concocting ways to demean and degrade Floridians that were far more creative than any techniques taught at the Royal Tampa Academy of Dramatic Tricks. 30 Rock took shots at Florida primarily through their exploration of “TGS” star Jenna Maroney’s humble beginnings of school boats and Gator Hater Gator Spray, and with each successive season, the lefty homoerotic propaganda hour grew even more ruthless in its ridicule of the racecar-loving wide loads of Florida.

Over in the 30 Rock subreddit, the uppity yankees all recently got together to discuss which of the 30 Rock digs on Florida were the absolute funniest from a northern perspective. Here are a few of their picks… 

“Central Florida is dominated by Jewish retirees, serial killers and secretly gay Disney princes

“The only crowds I could never figure out were in Northern Florida. One minute they’re laughing at me, and the next they’re laughing at me”

“Why cant we just cut this state adrift and let it crash into Cuba?”

“Florida — the penis of America”

“Have you ever been to Florida? Its basically a prison population. Its Americas Australia”

“I would have definitely gone to my reunion, but the boat I was educated on sank”

“Where are my manners? This is Florida. Let me boil up a pot of hot Gatorade. Is blue okay?”

“It’s at a fancy restaurant so wear something nice, like a pair of white jeans and a Dan Marino jersey”
