The other day I was waiting for the bus on Sunset Blvd. There was a homeless man eating some leftovers he'd dug out of the trash. He seemed quite content with his find.
That is until another homeless guy showed up...
The intruding homeless guy had a sign that said PLEASE HELP and he was walking among the cars stopped at the light.
This angered and interupted the first homeless guy's lunch as he stood up and yelled, "Hey, you can't panhandle here. This is my spot."
The second guy ignored him and continued walking through the heavy mid-day traffic.
The first one continued while waiving a spork in the air, "Hey, you. It's illegal to panhandle here. You need to leave before I call the Mayor."
That triggered a response, "You don't have no Mayor's number and besides I see you panhandle here all the time. Don't the laws apply to you too?"
Now with arms akimbo the first guy said, "No asshole, I am not subject to your human laws."
The second guy angrily asked, "What the fuck does that mean?"
The first guy did a big (and impressive) doo-wop move and proclaimed with his proud gesture of matter-of-fact, "I am from outer space - your human laws do not apply to me."
It worked as there just was no arguing with that so the second guy shrugged and took off down the street.
Satisfied with himself he returned to his lunch. He took a bite and then realized that I had been a witness to this bizarre encounter. He looked up and I asked, "Are you really from outer space?"
He pointed his spork in my direction and said cooly, "Not really."
