Best Sign

I doubt anyone is a stranger to homeless people sitting by the road with cardboard signs, but I saw a sign the other day that made me chuckle. I don’t know how I feel about laughing at a homeless person’s sign asking for money, but that seems like it was the point. Still there is a guilty feeling. Apparently this is a pretty common sign, but it was new to me. It read: “Ninjas killed my family. Need money for karate lessons.” There are a few variations, but I bet if you look hard enough you could find this is just about any city.
