"You gonna get raped"
state street in madison, wi, runs from the capitol to the university, and cars are not allowed to drive on most of the street, so it is a place where bums hang out and hassle the people walking by.
we were out at the bars one night and this bum blocked us on the sidewalk and asked for change. my roomate said that he didn't have any cash, only a credit card, and the bum yelled "that's ok, i've got paypal!" and proceded to rattle off his paypal account.
i was standing outside a taco bell in gainesville florida and then it happened, a twist on the old bum fight. this is how it went down:
i hear someone talking loudly. i turn to my left to see a hobo a ways down the sidewalk. He was talking loudly and motioning with his hands to some invisible person in front of him.
at this point the argument gets more heated and i can hear what he is saying, "you stepped on my god damn shoe!" at this point he looks very angry. then he continues, " you work for the government!the fbi! ive seen you before!" he steps forward as if to confront the "person". "Quit following me!"
now he literally throws down the backpack he had been wearing and yells " you want some!" "come on!" he proceeds to throw a puch in the air. shortly he is full on pounding the air, both arms swinging, a couple knees thrown in for good measure. then he yelled "owww!" he then tackled the air and started rolling on the ground, still throwing puches. and screaming the whole time.
Eventually he stops rolling around and just lays there motionless. I cooly walk away sipping my baja blast as if nothing ever happened, fresh memories of this epic one bum fight ingrained in my mind.
