I'm delivering a virtual honk, and some whiskerino monies to you. I hope you purchase more tacos with them.

Also, I hope that a scary clown doesn't climb out of that sewer grate behind you and eat you.

How long did you sport the sign?

elldub says:
@mattyc is a slave driver. Did you really collect $60? If so I suggest you go donate it to a charity or give it all to a soup kitchen.
Posted: Feb 11th, 2010 - 8:25pm -
mackle says:
i keep coming back to this and I'm so impressed you worked all three of these together so well.. hilarious
Posted: Feb 11th, 2010 - 8:27pm -
Grower&Shower says:
Thanks everyone for the kinds words!!!

@wondermade-- I took 27 pics so I was out there for maybe 10-15 minutes. I had a small window to avoid the rain.

@elldub-- I was kidding about the $60. People mostly laughed at me. However, there is such a large homeless population in Portland that standing on a freeway entrance with a sign asking for money is practically a viable profession here. One of our weekly newspapers once did an article on side-of-the-road panhandlers and found that some of them are making up to $30,000 a year doing this.

Great stuff! But I want to see the shots from when you used taco shell shards to defend your turf from the other hobos who wanted your corner.
