Adventures In Panhandling

From Jay Nordlinger:

True story — mid-’70s, Times Square. Tom Poston and Jerry Orbach are walking along with a reporter. A disheveled fellow approaches them and says, “I’m not going to lie to you, I need a drink.” Poston reaches into his pocket, pulls out a buck, extends it, then withdraws it briefly, saying, “How do I know you’re not going to spend this on food?”
