Famous Panhandler To Sell Famous Panhandling Accoutrements

By: 02.09.11  •  4 Comments

Golden-voiced panhandler Ted Williams is having a fire…sale. He’s planning to auction off his camouflage jacket and cardboard sign. Because where else could you get those?

The man with the golden voice wanted to put the sign on eBay to raise money for the “Ted Williams Second Chance Foundation.”

During his homeless days, Williams used the sign to panhandle and was holding it the day he was discovered by a reporter from The Columbus Dispatch.

–Fox 8 Cleveland.

I have a feeling that his “Second Chance Foundation” is a rubber coin purse in his sock where he keeps his booze money. You know what they say, after a second chance, and a third, and a fourth, you’ll surely find a fifth. Actually, I don’t know anyone that says that. It’s quite long and cumbersome to be a popular saying.
