    The guy has an ego problem! He ha to be in other peoples face to satisfy his self image! He should be booed off the subway car! He is intruding into other peoples piece of mind when they wish to be with their own thoughts!

  2. Rodnikov,

    It helps if you understand how often this actually happens in the subway where the person is explaining that they don’t do drugs but are just out of a job right now and are trying to get by if you could just help them out with any spare change. It’s usually somewhat uncomfortable. You try not to make eye contact with the panhandler. Sometimes they smell. One or two people in a car will give a dollar. Once in a while, I give a granola bar. I always travel with granola bars (and glucose tablets) due to my diabetes.


    The humor in this comes from people who were expecting yet another person loudly and obnoxiously intruding on their day and got loud obnoxious humor instead. He even managed to keep the cadence, tone, and volume consistent with actual subway panhandlers.

    As you can see, most people were amused and did give him the high five he requested. One man even hugged him.

    You just have to have experienced the real thing enough to appreciate the joke I guess.
