The Poor

Down and out to Stephen Fry: “Any spare change, guv?”

“Yes, I have, thanks so much for asking”

–ooOOoo–

 

Female beggar to well-dressed lady: “I haven’t eaten for three days”

“Oh, my dear, you must force yourself”

 

–ooOOoo–

 

Once while walking along Shandwick Place in Edinburgh, was stopped by a pan-handler who asked for money. I didn’t have much change – probably less than 20 pence – but handed it over.

The guy looks at it and says “You mean so and so. Is that the best you can do?”

“Right, you f***er, I’ll have it back then” and chased him half way down Queensferry Street

 

–ooOOoo–

We need to teach our children what's important in life after we learn it ourselves
