They have time to come up with stuff like this. :)
The third one down (the ninja one) is in downtown Seattle. I saw that sign abandoned in that same spot and took a picture of it. Possibly on that same day…
A lot of them don’t even know what their signs say. They ask people to write them for them.
This is a very inhuman stance. Please try and remember they are all photographs of real people.
Such a great series of street candid!
I’m not sure that homelessness (If that’s what some of these people are) is in any way linked to literacy levels….
do they really need money?
Its a tough job a least they are creative
Fred is clearly a fool
doesn’t look shopped to me.. , looks like they are looking for laughs fred, these are photographs, i see no lighting fractures or what not any way yeah these people are probably excited to be seen on the net more than ashamed of being framed in that situation, i deem it moral for that, .. if they make the right person laugh they might get real money, “if i was loaded and i saw something like that in the loop
(iliveinstlouis) i would for sure hand that dude 20$
I think most people remember they’re real people. They’re just taking a more humorous stance on it. I know if I saw one of these people I’d definitely give them at least a five =]
I would definitely give them at least a fiver, these guys seem pretty cool
there’s a lot of homeless people (and people who aren’t homeless) who use the ninja sign around nyc. #4 (molested) was sitting on 34th and 8th a few weeks ago. i gave him like $.75, i think. i think a lot of people who don’t live in big cities end up thinking they should empty their pockets to everyone who asks them to. i’ve lived in nyc my whole life and it’s completely impossible to donate every single time, even only the times when the signs are particularly creative. i usually only give $ to homeless people when they have a dog. these people are usually around 8th street. i usually give them cigarettes, alcohol, or drugs as well. but only if they have a dog.
shopped….definitely shopped. cant you see that none of the shadows line up at all…. and the text is completely pixellated. nd as for this homelessness you speak of..thats shopped too… people dont really do this kinda thing…obvious hoax
Hey Emily, what a coincidence. I only give to people who have ball pythons. Even if they are drinking and doing drugs, I donÂ´t care, as long as they have a ball python. HereÂ´s where it gets interesting: If they do have a ball python with them out on the streets of NYC, I automatically give them $1,000 worth of rats. ItÂ´s funny. Guess you would have to be there…
anthony, you are a weird-ass.
islalane – hm. i think i have a picture of myself with some guy on ave. a with a ball python. but he was not homeless. the reason i only give $ to people with dogs is cause, like, okay so you lost your job, house, and the love of your family, but that’s an innocent dog who deserves to eat kibbles… or at least some nasty kfc. i was almost homeless in burlington, vermont a while ago, and i told my ex-boyfriend, who was there with me at the time, that if we were really going to end up homeless, we were going to have to get a dog somehow. cause then we’d auctomatically get enough money to get a place to live. and if not that, maybe we’d get enough money for some better pot.
yes they are real people, but people equals shit.
So Anthony thinks that homeless people could never possibly have a sense of humour. Sheltered internet child needs to get out more and and experience life I think.
I hope, for the love of decency, that whoever snapped these photos saw that their subjects got tipped in the process.
Um, to Sarah
Anthony was kidding. “as for this homelessness you speak of..thats shopped tooâ€¦ people dont really do this kinda thing”. obviously he knows there are homeless people in the world. he was making fun of the other people who said it was photoshopped, as well as the fact that people like jump in random forums and claim things are photoshopped just to irritate people. guess it worked…
haha…i’ve seen the guy in the 4th one down a couple of times now. Midtown NYC. Not photoshopped…very real. And creepy.
hahaâ€¦iâ€™ve seen the guy in the 4th one down a couple of times now. Midtown NYC. Not photoshoppedâ€¦very real. And creepy.
That guy with the Ninjas sign if he is in Seattle I have seen him, or someone else ripped off his signage.
I believe these people are homeless. yes, they actually have a sense of humor..Wow…imagine that..That dude is from Seattle ..i’ve seen him by pike place market. at least these people ask for money and not steal or rob for it…wow…you Sad people need to have a heart sometime…What if you were homeless and wanted a beer?..you gonna rob a store for it??
haahahahhah ACCH HAI BAHUT ACCHA HAI
People are dying in streets and you guys take their photographs and laugh at them in your ivory towers?
Yes we laugh but our ivory towers… Definatly shopped… I mean large towers are to large to be realy…you can clearly see the rough edge around the copypaste and obvious blurring techniques where blending was attempted… No realist u are mistaken, u have been fooled by a clever photoshop nerd…u really should pay more attenition to detail and these things would be more obvious…
realist is obviously photoshopped
Not photoshopped. I see these people around the city
These comments are “shopped”. The photos are real, but some internet guru came through and “cropped and shopped” all these comments to make everyone think people had a response. Wait! How am I writing this if its actually shopped? Whoa. I am so confused. Maybe its just the swamp gas. Or maybe its the countless number of s”smarter-than-thou” Stumblers who happen upon these photos and think they are fake because a bug is not standing in the proper alignment of the sun causing its shadow to point east instead of west. For the record…I hate you. Everyone else is my friend.
isn’t that shopped? isn’t that an alien in the background by the way? who were those guys? and where did they come from? did they eat juicy fruits in the morning, such as avocados? is anyone gonna adopt those dudes anytime soon? what will they become when they are reborn?
I think these are pretty cool. I know I’m always more likely to give money to someone with a unique sign than just anybody on the street. I’d love if I could give to every homeless person I see, but it’s just not possible. The idea that any of this is shopped is just silly, why would anyone want to ‘shop it any how? What’s the point of making fake funny signs? Is so hard to believe that homeless people could make a joke about their situation? I mean Cancer patients do, and I’m sure most stumblers have seen the picture of the middle eastern man with his shirt that say ‘ 100% Randomly checked at the following airports:’ It makes sense to make jokes about hard and difficult things, it makes you feel stronger and better. What’s wrong with that?
haha I have def seen the guy in the 4th image down…he frequents areas in Midtown NYC near Macys
this comment is photoshopped.
You lost the game and divided by 0
I think the research one is my cousin, Im not kidding…..
I’ve seen, met and spoken to a couple of these(specifically the alcohol research, the molest guy, and the britney gift girl’s boyfriend – she’d written the sign for him earlier in the day) they’re creative individuals, and some of them are just in a bad luck streak. we’re all going through tough times…
I like these people. On the streets but their humor is still strong. The photoshop comments are getting old, too. Ima photoshop the comments so i stop seeing retards. :D
Yes, good for them. I would find it difficult to have a sense of humor if I was homeless…
i was shopping in Liverpool city centre (UK) i ran into a homeless guy near Lime Street Station he asked me for some change and i told him i honestly had no change this piece of shit spat in my face. needless to say he got no cash but did get knocked out for his trouble
homelessness now seems more appealing. i am strongly considering it now, and i’d love to actually interview a few vagrants. new ambitions ftw. thank you.
I saw the last guy about a year ago in the Times Square area. Rofl. Good stuff.
These dopes are probably all mentally ill. Tell them you give to the Salvation Army only. They’ll love that.
absolutely great creative ideas here..at least ,some of them say the truth :)
In the days when prevailing wisdom was that the Earth was flat, you could offer photographic evidence to the contrary, but if they’d also had Photoshop they would never believe it.
I was walking to work one day and saw a homeless guy whose sign said “homeless and hungry”. yet he was trying to give away a sandwich. When i got to work a couple minutes later, a couple of co-workers were talking about their lunch and one of them said he had given his to a homeless guy. i asked a couple of questions about his lunch and told him that the guy didn’t like it cuz he was trying to give it away.
Awesome, this is the first time I see these homeless. I must “thumb it up” and digg.
I don’t think anybody thinks the homeless are not creative. Besides, you just took these pictures from some other site anyway. You’re showing the height of non-creativity.
Wow, I saw the 4th guy when I was in NY
Wow! You people who say these are shopped! Get a grip! Life is cruel to some, and these guys are real. That they still have a sense of humor at all is amazing. You all sound as if you’d curl up and die. Next time you see one of these guys, don’t give them a dollar, give them a loaf of bread, or a hamburger, or a bag of oranges. You’ll be feeding their bodies, their souls, but *NOT* their habit of choice.
Why does somebody ALWAYS have to say a picture is photoshopped? Seriously, do you just LIKE wasting your time making a fool out of yourselves? And honestly, if it WAS photoshopped, why would you want to ruin it for everyone else around you? You aren’t going to get any awards for being an A-hole, so give it up! You’re just ruining peoples’ days!
people who call photo shop SHUT THE FUUUUCK UP! im so sick of that…dumbasses.
these are great. i saw a good one in san fran, this guy on haight had a sign that said ‘spare a nickel for a potless pothead’
kira: it’s people like you that make it worthwhile
Deathnote much? ^.^
in sf i saw a bum in a wheelchair with a sign that said “united negro pizza fund” it was awesome.
I saw one in Frisco that said:
“bet you can’t hot me with a quarter!”
.. he was wrong.
the guy who says “at least im not bullshitting you” is from montreal! hahahah
I live in Key West and have seen several of these in different variations. My ex husband and I used to own/operate a homeless shelter. Do not be deluded—there are some homeless people who truly are homeless due to a glitch in the system. These people “fall between the cracks” for financial aid, career education, etc They would go out and look for work daily and they really tried to better themselves. But most, not all, are just happy to let other people take care of them. About 1% of the homeless are mentally ill, but due to our country’s laws the institutions can only keep them a short time if they are not a danger to themselves or others, which is a sad situation because they truly need tending. But the great majority are just either lazy or they have a high degree of mistrust of the government and society at large for their situation (sometimes with good reason)
A homeless woman in Vancouver interrupted a conversation between myself and several friends to tell us she was starving and could we help with some money for food. With leftovers in my possession – having just come from a restaurant – i gave her some french fries and the rest of a burger. “Ewww. These are cold!” She said, after halfheartedly tasting a fry. “I thought you were fucking starving,” I said. We had barely turned back around to hear the conclusion of my friend’s story when another crazy Vancouver druggie interrupted for “food money.” “Can I just finish my fucking story!” my friend yelled, which startled a few of the still approaching vagrants thus keeping them at bay for a few minutes. If you ever spend time in Vancouver know this: the bums are harmless, but they are everywhere and are incredibly obnoxious. I say screw those lazy, heroin-filled bastards. A funny sign doesn’t change the fact that they’re a drain on society.
hey neil, your a pussy
^ I bet you feel like a real man now!
Fighting on the ‘net is like participating in the special olympics; even if you win, you’re still retarded.
Haha, I laughed at the “Need Money for Alcohol Research” one. Stumble this page!
creativity is everywhere! :D
honesty is the best policy.
You guys are so funny. The photoshop comment would be on a picture of the commentors own mother. It’s internet humor, bears with us nerds.
Paul: homeless people can read and write. Don’t be so ignorant yourself.
i saw a sign once and it said “what this country needs” on one side and on the other it said “change…can ya spare some?”
I hate the homeless.
Chris Rock said it best, If a Homeless person has a funny sign he hasn’t been homeless long enough.
i once saw a guy with a sign that said “scagless shagless and skint” but coz i woz too ikept my small change in my pocket, raised a smile if nothing else in my case!
like the last one
ive never heard anyone say the homeless aren’t creative. just lazy.
Despite the mild success, all the silly trolls should return to 4chan, or whatever their respective home may be. Except Anthony. Anthony is funny.
i ran into a guy in Cincy one time with a sign that said “Give me a dollar or I’ll kick your ass”. He was in a wheelchair, and didn’t have legs.
I emptied my pockets and gave him cigarettes. He definitely made my night.
these guys could be stars in the AD industry!
Saw this guy in Boston:
every funny !! thumbed up.
very funny !! thumbed up.
They laughing in the face of the cruelty, which we are a part of. The very least we can do is laugh with them or help them out which ever one you feel more comfortable with.
quite creative and true. :P
Nice use short-cut ideas for getting money within a less period of time for these people I think….. :)
nice creativity by beggars!!
These images are not photoshopped. I, too, have seen the “ninjas” sign and variations of the others.
I saw one say “Smile if you masturbate, laugh if you love it”
the fourth one down . . . i saw him in new york about a year ago. i remember because the sign got my attention and made me laugh so hard that i gave the guy all the money in my wallet.
Some of those made me LOL!
Awesome serie !
All these photos are “shoped” (not shopped, you’ll notice, because I haven’t the time to spell correctly in my condemnation). Everyone knows that all homeless people wear army jackets from the sixties and have small dogs that follow them about nipping at their heels. Also, it is a documented fact that all homeless people have “Untouchable” tattooed on their foreheads. By the way, this “shop” job is so bad they cut out the “callers” that homeless people must hire to announce that they are walking down the street, so that the regular citizens can get away from the area.
the next person to comment that a post is photoshopped will be hunted down and beaten to death with a new unopened copy of photoshop. The end result will then be photographed and posted online so that the cycle can continue until all of you morons are dead!
they’re still bums
I feel more for the ones who can’t make signs.
Really not that creative when you consider they’ve had years , 24/7, thinking those lines up.
kaj, u r my hero.
