This sketch from Wiretap seems appropriate here: Link (Go to 19:25 for the skit)

/although, the entire episode is pretty funny

I prefer orange creamsicles anyway. Speaking of which, I think there's a nude beach nearby.

TFA is useless without pics of free ice cream.

Also, if you can't hide your sexuality for free ice cream from a charity you're doing it right. F*ck them.

"People always say that. Get a job you bum! Like it's always that easy. I saw a guy say that to a bum once. The guy was wearing his underware outside his pants. Im guessing there will be a few problems during the interview process. I'm betting his resume aint all up to date. Even McDonald's has an Underware goes inside the pants policy. Not that they enforce it strictly enough but technically I'm sure it's on the books."

Kind of off-topic, but it reminds me of the time I said to my sister "If that book The Secret is as awesome as you and Oprah think it is, then instead of sending food and aid to third world countries, we should just send them copies of The Secret, and then poverty-stricken parts of the world would be able to simply wish their way to prosperity.

People say that to. "Don't give em any money they'll just waste it on booze or drugs. Well thats what I was gonna spend it on. Why am I judging this poor bastard? He's homeless, what do you want him to do? save it up and got to Target for a throw rug and a CD rack?"

You're laying on the smug a little thick there, subby. Something tells me that the average Salvation Army worker does more in a week to help the needy than you have in your entire life. That goes double for everyone whingeing about how they mistreat the gays. By all means, enjoy feeling superior for expressing the right moral opinions on the internet. Meanwhile, all these awful, homophobic Christian charity organizations that "hate" gays will go on helping people.

Hitler started the Winterhilfswerk to help the homeless, but all anyone wants to talk about is the "Final Solution"

Leave poor, hard working Hitler alone!

Are you going to be that guy? Don't be that guy, nobody likes that guy.

Honestly, I think things like this (giving away treats) probably do quite a bit for their happiness. In fact, most of my charity is in this vein. I usually have cold soda with me, and sometimes there will be some beggar holding their cardboard sign in the hot sun and I'll give them a soda (occasionally even a beer). I've given beggars chocolate bars, etc.

When you're poor, often these little luxuries are the things you never get. They're not realistically going to get off the street, but at least they can have a little brightness in their day.

// or maybe I'm just a stingy bastard ...

No, you must evaluate organizations wholesale. Good or bad. With us or against us. Black or white.

sorry. but you're part of the problem.

plenty of apartments are avilalbe. just pick up an apartment guide and give it to the next stranger who says he's homeless.

Yeah because sugary treats is exactly the thing you want to give people without toothbrushes

A friend of mine is a member of a Kindred that hands out all kinds of things to the homeless in this area. I think it's been ice cold, bottled water the last few days, in addition to the normal "bag o' yummy treats" and sammiches and other little things to help them out. I've gone out with them a few times when they've done things like that and the homeless folks really do appreciate it.

They do other things as well to help where they can, it's just such a problem here that even with all the groups working the area they can't really even make much of a dent. At least they're making that dent - I'll give them that.

Actually my experience with the homeless is most of them carry a toothbrush in their pocket or bag.

They need a balanced meal of liver and onion + asparagus.
