While coming back from a great day at the beach (is it too late for a new year’s resolution? I’m determined to learn to surf, so that I can teach my daughter to surf!) earlier this week, we saw a very curious sight: a man at an intersection with a sign asking for money, but talking on his cell phone.  Kind of like this photo, I guess, but minus the “honesty” in his sign.

Now, I’m sure some people would be extremely offended by this (“Well if he can afford a phone then he shouldn’t be out begging!”) but it just struck me as being really surreal.  Only in La Jolla, I guess.

Just for fun, while we’re on the topic of signs, how about this one [h/t: Guy Kawaskai]:

The nerd in me might actually give this Cylon a dollar.
