Signs of the times

I saw one of the following signs, read about the second one, and was sent the third by a friend from New Orleans. The creativity that goes into these things is quite something.

The First Sign. Spotted while driving in the Bronx yesterday right next to Yankee Stadium, stopped in traffic:

Why Lie? I Want A Beer!

And yes, people were indeed giving the thirsty guy money.

Second Sign. Read about this morning in the Metropolitan Diary:

Ninjas killed my family. Need money for kung fu lessons.

No word on whether he was getting any closer to his revenge.

Finally, a picture sent to me by a buddy who was in New Orleans and came across this fellow with this sign:

Points for honesty!

No money, but definite points!

Despite the humor in it, this kind of ethical behavior reaffirms my faith in mankind. Glad you shared that pic.

LOL! If I ran into him I'd laugh, shake his hand and give him $5. I'll bet he's making a fortune.

What's with all the beer? Is MD/20 out of fashion?

I've been out of the loop too long.
