  1. How do you hold up a bank without a weapon?

  2. Isn't the second subject the guy that panhandles off of the 90W Armitage exit?

    1. Dude don't post here, call for the reward!

    2. I literally thought the same - the guy with the sign about having a 7 year old on the northbound exit at armitage.

  3. I also thought it was the Armitage exit guy...after a bit of a beard trim.

  4. I guess we didn't give enough, if it is him. I did from time to time the first year, then quit.

    1. That man has been asking money in that spot for some 3-4 years now, somehow his 7 year old son stays the same age.
