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.

Isn't there a law against this? Don't good deeds have to be done by federally regulated organizations? Someone better @#$@#$@ing look into this, QUICK!

While I approve of the sentiment, wouldn't it be a better idea to give to people who can't even afford a car?

Before even reading the comments I bet my wife 50 kronor that there would be at least one comment that mentioned how evel government regulated Charity is. I won!

A few years ago, while on vacation, I saw this presented as a hidden camera skit on French television. The main character was a disheveled man approaching people at a shopping mall, asking them if they had any money, and offering a fistful of Euros when they answered "Non." I found the twist at the end very funny.

If you give another person money, that's charity,
When the government gives a person money, that's welfare.
If you take money by force from another person, that's stealing.
When the government takes money by force from a person, that's taxation.
