Panhandler Faux Pas

Why or why don't I always carry my camera with me wherever I go? Then I would not have missed this photo opportunity.

Earlier this evening GLH and I drove through the Plaza in Kansas City, Missouri. Standing on a street corner was a familiar sight -- a panhandler holding a sign with her sob story and asking for money.

Only this time, the panhandler held the sign backwards. Instead of displaying her sob story, what you saw was the empty carton of Busch Beer. There's never been more truth in advertising. Any donation would likely have procured exactly that!

GLH and I were laughing so hard we almost caused an accident.
