FestivusFloridaGov. Rick Scott’s (R) office has approved the request of a self-proclaimed “militant atheist” to install an 8-foot-tall Festivus pole made of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer cans in the Florida State Capitol building. According to Tamarac Talk, Deerfield Beach resident Chaz Stevens asked for permission to honor the holiday created by the television show Seinfield after learning that there was a Christian nativity manger and a Three Wise Men display. “I figured one ridiculous act required another,” Stevens noted.

After the activist forced Deerfield Beach to allow him to erect his pole outside the main fire station last year, the city voted to ban all religious displays.

Stevens plans to install the pole at the Capitol building on Wednesday. MORE
