The photo, visible above, nicely juxtaposes the tech-savvy beggar's "Every Bit Helps" sign with McDonald's plea for workers.

"Found a guy begging for bitcoins, wonder if he noticed the sign behind him," kingbot, the Reddit poster who published the photo, wrote.

We dropped kingbot a line in hopes of learning more about his viral shot but haven't heard back as this is published.

What would have been funny is if a real poor person pushed this dork into the snow bank and stole his wallet which probably had 10 bucks and a credit card linked to mom's account in it. What a loser.

Douche Hipster. I bet the d-ring has fake keys on it as well.


I'm guessing two things here. First, he and his photographer realized he was in front of a sign that read we are now hiring and second that he is not a beggar.

And the punch line is we are now hiring. Why is this news?

Ha, I'm gonna act all hip to my out-of-town friends from now on: "Oh yeah, we haven't used dollars in the 612 since forever."
