Will complain for $

15Apr05

I saw the best busker in the subway tonight. Well, I’m not sure if he counts as a busker because he wasn’t playing an instrument or singing or doing magic tricks or whatever. He was just complaining. But this panhandler was complaining at such a virtuoso level that I felt compelled to stop and give him some change — great voice projection and some intriguing-sounding subject matter.

“Now a thousand chicks don’t have a mother,” he yelled. “I’m so pissed off!” Maybe he was talking about the poultry industry. I don’t know. I’m sorry I didn’t have time to stick around and find out. It sounded like a pretty solid bit of bitching worth paying a little something to hear.
