Homeless man asks money for beer, buys food

Anywhere. New York City. “In my business, you have to be creative. To say the least, it’s not easy, living on the streets. But you can get by if you learn a few simple rules. One of them is understanding just how much judgmental by-passers love sincerity.

If I just tell them I am hungry, it doesn’t work. It’s just not real enough. As a hunger artist, you must be a good people reader. Some want to know that you drink or do drugs.

There is no such thing as a nice, hungry hobo. Having a dog really helps too. They looove dogs and feel so sorry for them, poor innocent creatures. Sometimes, I get a really nice meal off of that.

It basically depends on you alone, whether you are slick enough to eat or not. I mean, at the end of the day, I am on the streets by choice and get by as everybody else trying to support a lifestyle.

Something for something!”
