The best panhandling ever: girlfriend captured by ninjas need money for kung foo lessons

Hey! Did you know you can buy my book on Amazon? 37 women wrote about the struggle for perfection, and I'm one of 'em. Go check it out!
I Made Pictures in My Mind to Remember You Today’s Post is Brought to You by Shamelessness. And BlogHer. And Me.


  1. OMG that’s fantastic.

  2. I’d definitely give him a dollar!

  3. My current favorite is the man near the Wal-mart who has a sign that says “Too ugly to be a hooker”. He also has “Will wrestle your mother in law for a buck”

  4. Creativity at its best! 🙂

  5. A number of years ago as an alternative to “will work for food” (hah!) I saw a panhandler in San Francisco with a sign saying “won’t work for food, will spend your money on beer.” I had to give him a buck for his honesty. Generally, I give panhandlers no money, especially if they’re 30 years old, appear to be able bodied, and have a s**t eaten grin on their face. Even if they’re carrying a bible 😉

    • Or a baby!

      • Especially if he was carrying a baby. I’d be tempted to say “sorry, I don’t want to encourage [edited] to reproduce” and “there’s a Goodwill down the street: You can probably get some kind of work there!” The Buddhist’s have a concept called “idiot compassion”. Obviously, I don’t practice it 😀

        • I think that there are way too many able bodied people mooching off the system. As someone who was genuinely unemployed for many months, I worked my ASS OFF just to get a new job. They should do the same.

  6. Well? Did you give him a dollar??

  7. I LOVE it! He’d definitely get a buck or two outta me!
