Why Lie, Need A Beer…Karate Lesson?
While traversing through downtown Miami, on the way to where you’re going, you’re practically guaranteed to see something super random. If you happen to be on your way to the American Airlines Arena, and you’re lucky enough to have Miami Heat tickets or are going to catch a Cirque du Soleil performance, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for a BP Gas Station. You could be in for a real treat. “My entire family was kidnapped by Ninjas. I need money for karate lessons.” This is the content of the poster of a homeless man who stands outside this gas station. This is AWESOME! I had heard about this homeless man, and his ridiculously awesome posters, but I was never able to find him. One of my fans sent me this picture. After you recover from the double take that just happened to make sure you indeed read what you just read, you might notice the best part about this picture. When you look at his face you notice a large, crooked smile. For someone whose family has just been murdered by ninjas and is now left to roam the streets of Miami finding funding for either self defense or his revenge, the guy seems to be pretty happy. Or maybe he himself can’t get over his amazing and creative sign. Recently it seems ninjas have been integrated into all parts of internet culture…along with pirates, and zombies (hello like the Zombie Land movie!!). Facebook even hosts an app where you can pledge your allegiance in the battle between Ninjas and Pirates. I probably would give him a few bucks just because instead of the traditional lying, blunt honesty, or even looking for sympathy change, this man decided to tap into his creative side and reach out to his audience.
…It gets better; this bum has also been spotted with a poster asking the people of Downtown Miami if he can borrow the car for the weekend!! If you happen to Downtown, catch a pic of this other poster and submit it during the month of November and you will get a free RandoMIAMI T-shirt.
