When fakes collide

Can you tell which fake has his hand on the other’s wallet?

Panhandling Santa outside Macy’s upsets other panhandlers.

A bad Santa was bagging cash right and left from kiddies and their parents while panhandling in a prime spot outside Macy’s in Herald Square on Sunday — hitting them up for $5 a pop to take a single photo with him.

The fake fat man held a Christmas choir bell in one hand — and a red knapsack full of cash and clothes in the other — as he asked for “tips’’ and “donations.’’

I can’t quite parse this term, “fake fat man”. Does the reporter mean that, beneath that role-polly figure lies a lean, hungry man? Or does he mean a fake Santa – is there any other kind?

Either way, is the panhandler any worse than any of the Democrats currently running for office?

    It must be going around. Just saw two (non-homeless) guys rummaging through the Neighbor to Neighbor bin at Stop and Shop before they lifted a grocery bag full of stuff. Lovely.

    If you have a serious issue with this, get a professional. I saw two houses in Riverside (built by the same Westchester ‘builder’) have their roofs adjusted after the Town discovered they were over 35 feet above grade.
