Best Panhandling Sign Ever

This weekend I was in a city large enough to actually have panhandlers, and as usual I was seeing them at relatively random intervals. DM needed to make a stop at Home Depot so we swung in there, and at the entrance I saw the usual dirty looking person with a cardboard sign.

I don't give money to panhandlers because I always get that knee jerk "I work for my money" reaction. Because I'm a bad person I like to read the signs and rate them for originality.

This one broke the rating system:

"Bet you can't hit me with a quarter: Double or nothing"

I turned to DM and said "It's almost worth a quarter just to have the satisfaction of beaning him in the head with it."

DM chuckled and said "It'd be worth a dollar to me if we had a golf ball to wrap it around."

Yes, we're horrible people, but at least we didn't actively go looking for a golf ball.....

Well, you could have wrapped it in a .45 round... Just sayin... :-)

Slingshot. Just sayin'

He doesn't specify a quarter of WHAT...perhaps a quarter of a cinderblock?
