  1. Wow! I hope you will do a follow-up post about minimizing ninja risk and how much kung-fu lessons cost.

  2. Yes, a cost-benefit analysis would probably help this guy. Let's see, risk of ninjas killing me is about 50%, and kung-fu lessons cost about $1,000 if I want to get really good...:)

  6. Right on! I would, too—I will always pay someone who tells an entertaining tale.

  7. I'd pay for the laugh. And he's smiling, that's always nice. ^_^

    How's the DDR? :-p Yaaaaaaay for spending tons of quarters while playing it... It's better than paying for a gym membership...??

  9. Wow!

    Wish I had such a good sense of humor.

  10. I have seen a very different looking guy displaying a variant of this in Santa Monica, CA -- "Entire Family Killed by Ninjas; Need Money for Karate Lessons." (semicolon mine)

    I wonder (a) who came up with this originally, (b) how quickly and by what mechanism this particular sign wording is being spread to panhandlers in various locations, and (c) which of the martial arts would actually be most effective against family-killing ninjas.

  11. heh. yeah maribeth, saw the picture and I was wondering if it was the same dude you mentioned. but I guess not.

    if the idea was spread by word, then wow. heh.

  12. Where was this!? That's TOO funny

  13. That picture is very amusing although upsetting at the same time. I'm sure he would prefer to be writing on his own blog like us than hustling for change. Hopefully his originality will bring him some more money.

  14. Yes Andrew, excellent point. I want to make it clear that I really did mean I'd give him money and that the humor is *his* (his sign) and I am not laughing at him.

    I got word from Burrito Blog that this particularly guy sits outside the Empire State Building and is an appreciated "fixture" there.

    More power to him!

  15. Hahaha. I'm a huge ninja fan. Well not really but I like to consider myself a stock trading ninja. In and out without a sound. You seem really cool and smart about your money. Can I add this pic to my blog? haha.

  16. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
