Options August 9, 2017: Éncore édition: Panhandling on the L Train, from May 2013

Ken and Andy prepare to have a panhandle-off on the L train. Whoever can beg for the most money between stops on the train wins.

During the buildup to the main event, both Ken and Andy are nearly overcome with bouts of extreme nervousness, dread, and soul searching as they contemplate the task ahead. Ken is afraid of being arrested and is embarrassed by his freakishly old age; Andy is afraid of being lynched and ponders what went wrong in his life. But they must go through with it because everybody is looking forward to it.

The pair meet a young homeless woman named Tesla and her dog Kilo outside the train station, and they use her as their panhandling consultant.

When the time finally comes, Ken goes with the strategy of honesty (begging for WFMU) and Andy begs for money to see The Great Gatsby. Ken wins with $2 to Andy's $0. Ken donates his winnings to Tesla.

"Radio for losers & mutants" would be a good tagline for the billboard

Careful, Andy, you were in danger of resembling someone human there for a moment.
  Wed. 8/9/17 6:30pm miles:

somebody tell me what the idea is on today's show
  Wed. 8/9/17 6:30pm Torbjørn:

I can't remember this one, do they actually make it to the subway ? Or is it only light comedy based on social depravity ? @Miles, panhandling on the subway is the theme du jour.
Avatar    Wed. 8/9/17 6:31pm Will from Seattle:

it's a rerun, they're panhandling on the subway
  Wed. 8/9/17 6:33pm miles:

thx.. oh rerun..
Avatar    Wed. 8/9/17 6:34pm JakeGould:

I’ve seen people peeing and taking dumps between cars. You know when there is a “sick passenger” on a train? Good chance the “sick” person is a homeless person doing their business between cars.

I like 'music for mutants, losers and scum for the billboard.'
Avatar    Wed. 8/9/17 6:39pm ultradamno:

...to echo Will.
Avatar Wed. 8/9/17 6:52pm franny:

I love her. Because she's never panhandled.
Avatar    Wed. 8/9/17 6:53pm Will from Seattle:

oh nice this is the "I'm a genius too, ya know" session

They don't put bathrooms in the trains or stations, and it carries millions of people a day. What do they expect?
Avatar    Wed. 8/9/17 6:58pm JakeGould:

Rhonda is a nice name.
  Wed. 8/9/17 6:58pm cat:
