Best Homeless Guy Sign Ever

My wife, Miranda Kopfschmertzen and I were visiting Seattle recently and I saw the best homeless guy sign ever. Sadly, I didn’t have mind to take a picture. His sign read

Ninjas killed my dad, Need money for karate lessons.

    You never know – it could be true. Don’t deny a man the need to avenge his father’s death. Ask Inigo Montoya.

    Well, he was terribly earnest in his plea.

    It may certainly be true. Although if true, he sure took the wrong path. When Bruce Wayne’s parents were taken from him in childhood, he went off and became Batman. This guy just became Homelessman, not a very good superhero. Or maybe he was called The Beggar. I didn’t really ask. Maybe he was Transi-Ant. Still that doesn’t sound like much of a superhero either. Transi-Ant – able to pilfer small amounts of change on a single street corner!

    Perhaps he didn’t go the superhero route at all. Perhaps he became a superspy. Bond. Vagabond. Again, though, if that were true then he’s either a excellent superspy (superbly carrying out espionage while convincingly posing as a bum), or a terrible spy (really just a bum, disavowed by his government). Furthermore, if he was skilled at his spy craft, I suspect he’d already be well trained in the martial arts.

    But whether true or not, all I am saying it is the sign was totally awesome.
