Creative Bums

I went to Oakland this past weekend and by the Oakland A's stadium, there was a bum with a sign that read "Ninjas kidnapped my family. Need money for karate lessons."

I thought it was great and gave him a dollar for the creativity.

You should have explained to him that the ninja will always beat the karate master. He would have been better off trying to recruit a gang of pirates.

The "Bush Man" at Fisherman's Warf in San Francisco . . . he's been there for years and I never get tired of watching him work.

As Chris Rock says:

"If a homeless person has a funny sign, he hasn't been homeless for that long. A real homeless person is too hungry to be funny."

You people act like this is a humourous sign fad spreading around... what you dont' realize is that the Ninjas are simply expanding their territory.
