Are They Homeless Folks Or Expert Marketers?

shutterstock_26798017Homelessness is a terrible thing and Vegas can be a cruel place for the homeless. As we reported before hundreds of people live underneath the Strip in tunnels. You can read that story here.

We realize that there is a large homeless community in Las Vegas, but there seems to be another group who pass themselves off as homeless, but are probably just great marketers.

When you walk up and down the Strip, you will see numbers of people, mostly men, sitting on the side of the road or on a overpass bridge. They want money, of course. It can be hard to tell the real homeless from the fakers.

We have to admit that some of the signs held by these folks are truly creative. Some may have a future in advertising. Here are a few of the signs you may see while in Vegas:

“My father was killed by Ninjas.”

“Wife had a sex change and ran off with my girlfriend.”

“Why lie? I need weed.”

“I’m like Obama. I want change.”

“”Need to get new Brittany Spears CD. Anything helps.”
