Ninjas Killed My Family
It must have been 170 degrees today. Oh my god was it hot. I checked in with three other panhandlers, all of whom were doing just the rush hour, and not even the full hour. People seem to give less when they don't want to roll down their windows and face the non airconditioned world.
I didn't get any photos today, but Christine Redford of Arkansas e-mailed me this one. I've seen it before, and it's definately one of the best signs I've seen. Good stuff. I hope this guy got his kung fu lessons. Personally I'd advise him just get a gun. It's cheaper, more effective and then he can spend the rest of the dough on booze and hotel rooms! One critique, the sign really should say "God Bless" (or maybe "Namaste" if he's in LA or New Mexico). There are many folks out there who will pay dearly for a "God Bless." The smileys almost make up for it.
This heat's making me want to do more online panhandling, so look for that in a chat room near you. Or look for it right here. Can you spare a $1.67? It'd really help out. The donation buttons are right there on your right. God Bless. :) :) :)
