New “fake” Challenge


You have all heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge that raised millions for ALS (Which BTW my mother-in-law died from)

Reverse Panhandling

A Michigan couple stood roadside with signs that read, "NO, I Am Not Homeless, I Am Not Hungry. Can I Give YOU A Dollar" handing out 100 $1 bills to passing motorists. They also buy bus passes and hand them out while riding the bus. They just like to do good deeds for strangers.

Invest in Literature—and a Piece of the Brooklyn Bridge

Do you have a spare $2000.00 lying around the house? Why not send it to this untested fiction writer and receive a share of his entirely hypothetical profits?

In fact, I'm a relatively penniless writer too!

Thanks to good pal Sandy Pearlman for discovering this one!
