"Hey Buddy. Can you spare some GG?"

A phrase that can often be heard in any major city!

Edit:

I work at an urban University and often we wander off campus for lunch. During the summer months, approaching quick, we frequently get pan handled coming to or from place to place. In fact, happened the other day. I got the can you spare some change approach, which prompted this whimsical geek list.

Also, this is not intended as a slight to any hard working people down on their luck. Gas prices keep climbing and I may be looking for some spare gas change soon!

Regards,

"Hey buddy. Spare some geek gold today?"

There are those that have a very engaging story.

"Say man. I was on my way to visit my sick mother when my car broke down. I would have just gone and got some gas, but I dropped my wallet down the sewer drain. If you could spare some geek gold, I could go play some ticket to ride with my sick mom. What about it, help me out?"

There are those that are simply down on their luck.

My cup is out. How about dropping some geek gold in it for a gamer down on his luck.

There are the street performers who have their guitar cases open and entertain for a few dollars!

There are those that have something to sell.

"Hey buddy. I have a sweet copy of Risk: Black Ops. Complete set, only 5 geek gold. A real bargain!"

Then there are those that see a poor hopeless man walking down the street begging for a handout, and when a generous person reaches out their hand with the geekgold the thief runs in and snatches it up right from under the beggars nose.
