I'm on public transportation all the time. Funniest thing I heard today was a girl tell another girl "I don't think there's any event worth taping your breasts up for, I don't care who's going to be there"

I was sitting on the sidewalk enjoying a tallboy in the Bowery, enjoying a conversation with some local chap, when a vagrant walked by screaming: "Im gunna do it! In broad day light, In broad daylight, you fucking bitch in broad daylight!"

Go on brother! Ahhh NYC, I love that town.

I was getting a lift home from a buddy one night, and as we were driving through downtown I saw a man wearing red shoes, red slack, a red shirt, a red coat, and a red hat, and wearing a sign that said BLUE. He started shouting "It's True!" over and over as we passed by. There was a crowd of winos gathered behind him, looking at him like he was some giant bottle of hooch, or Wino royalty. My buddy, who was undrunk at the time, saw it too.

Drunk Injun was/is one of my most favorite posters on this website.

The screaming, ranting bum is always a classic. I remember being up at a deli near Temple with my friend to go get our dinner of hoagies/steaks and 40s, when this other guy starts walking past us on the other side of the chips shouting: "I GOT A DICK! YOU GOT A DICK! I GOT A DICK, AND YOU GOT A DICK! I GOT A PUSSY! I GOT A DICK AND A PUSSY!"

It wasn't my first encounter with this bum, but it was the first time I realized that he may be a hermaphrodite. Or else really really really high on crack-cocaine. Either way.

It might not have been that dinner; most likely it was another time, but we were at the same deli pulling Bud Ice 40s out a fridge when some other random customer stops us.

"HO!" he says. "Ho ... You know that ain't no malt liquor, right?"
We pointed him to the ABV and he was like, "Oh, ok ok, I see. So its got some kick to it, huh? Know what, I'mma try that," and he puts one of his Silver Thunders back in the fridge and grabs a Bud Ice 40.

I got a couple of customers at King Edward's in LA to get 7 oz Budweisers for $1.25 rather than the 12 oz for $2.50. Wino math problems are the best.

Whoever said you weren't a humanitarian was a fucking liar.
