    I generally don't give money directly to the homeless\people on the road asking for money, although I do occasionally give directly to homeless shelters. However, I will make the rare exception for a really good sign.

    I saw my all-time favorite the other day: "Ninjas killed my family. Need money for Kung Fu lessons"

    Not meant to be a racial comment.

    The corner of Aurora and Denny in Seattle. I feel kinda bummed that it's been used other places (judging by Lil Pun's pictures). I thought it was original, but maybe the dude just plagiarized it.

    Not really a sign, but in San Francisco, I had a beggar come up to me and ask for a donation the the "United Negro Cheeseburger Fund". I give as I can anyway, but I gave a little more joyfully to him.

    Aside from the "ninjas killed my family" sign, my favorite has to be "why lie, I need a beer".

    Ah...good old Wilson. He once worked as a pool cleaner for my friend's company. He's a true pro on the north side. He carries about 10 different signs. I've left early enough for work on days to see him leaving his neighborhood there off of Parmer behind the Kwik Lube.

    Did you see him off 290? I saw a guy with that sign by the Target off 290 a few months ago.
