Ily makes Florida's "weirdest stories"

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's disbelief that Barack Obama was calling her -- she twice hung up on the president-elect -- gets top billing in the Associated Press's annual recounting of the wackiest Florida stories.

"The past year in Florida saw deputies Taser an emu, iguanas fall from trees and a Christmas tree used as a weapon," the AP writes. "What else would you expect in a state where a longtime congresswoman hung up on President-elect Barack Obama not once, but twice?

"In a year full of weird events, Republican U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen thought she was being 'punked' when Obama called her a few weeks after the election. She told him he was a better Obama impersonator than the guy on Saturday Night Live and hung up. Obama called back, and she hung up again. She finally took the call after a House colleague called and convinced her it was the real Obama."
