There have been many odd Florida stories posted online, but have you heard this one?
Someone found a prosthetic ear in the sand at Manatee Public Beach last weekend during the World’s Strongest Man competition, local news outlets reported.
The beachgoer turned the ear in to Holmes Beach police, who posted photos on Facebook.
Police said the department got a call from a woman in South Carolina who told them the ear belonged to her husband.
She said her husband went swimming and when he was trying to put the ear in his pocket, a wave knocked it out of his hand.
