BELLEAIR BEACH, Fla. A man who apparently passed out on a pool float at a Tampa area beach ended up drifting about a mile from Florida’s shore in the Gulf of Mexico.

The U.S. Coast Guard rescued the man, identified as Jerry Whipple, on Wednesday afternoon. Coast Guard Petty Officer First Class Mariana O’Leary says they suspect the man was very drunk.

The Coast Guard says a boater reported seeing an unconscious man floating well offshore. The Coast Guard and a Clearwater Fire Rescue unit responded and found the man, still unconscious and wearing a life jacket.

I’ve passed out drunk in many weird places, but I can’t say I’ve traveled a mile during my sleep. I wouldn’t be surprised if his friends had put him on that float and sent him off to sea. That’s definitely something my friends would do. Damn, I need better friends. Especially since I sleep like this guy…

Also, in doing my research for this story I found some great pictures of girls on pool floats. Allow me to share them with you. link link link link
