I love it!!! What a sad state of affairs when blackberries (phones, not food) are more important than food...

Ironic indeed! Scary, for sure.

You know what's really pathetic? That people believe that Blackberries cost $300 (that Pearl he's holding is only $49), and that service for the phone costs over $100 a month. Oh well, I get the gag, but the exaggerated part really irks me.

DS - For me it wasn't the cost of it. Just the irony. Maybe the guy wasn't even waiting in line to eat. Maybe he was a volunteer and just came around to take a picture. Who knows? It's just funny to me...

Patois said...

Who knows his circumstances, but the set-up is definitely priceless.

That is SO wrong but SO typical!

Homeless people need mobile phones so they can hold jobs. A lot of employers require a phone number where they can contact them. I've heard of a few people who had jobs where they employers had no clue they were homeless.

Don't you just love spam comments!! Anyway, back to the picture, I totally missed the fact that he was taking a pic with a blackberry. Sad but true state of affairs in this country today.

I know that spammers don't read the comments, Dena...but DELETED they are!

I will not tolerate any spam. Anonymous comments will be deleted if they are spam!

I'd like to believe that he was a volunteer or someone who was walking by and heard she was in there. Yes, that's it. I'm so sure he's not homeless with that type of phone and that type of bill. Surely not.

LOL... It took all of my energy not to laugh at that. :)

OMG I love it... that is "poverty" in America for you. As Oprah once said, even the poorest of poor here live better then those in 3rd world countries
