Cheapskate!: Gimme, The Panhandling Robot

September 28, 2010


Gimme is a panhandling robot designed and built by artist Chris Eckert. Basically he follows you around with that googly eye of his and shakes his money-cup at you until you 1) make a donation or 2) kick him over, douse him in gasoline and watch that ass burn its way back to Satan. You know, or you could ignore him. But like Edmund Burke once said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." So I ask, will you do nothing and let evil triumph? Because I'd like to think you'd pick up a pipe and beat the metallic f*** out of this dirtbag. Come on -- he's not even poor, he just panhandles because he's too lazy to get a job! Oh -- I feel a little jingle coming on!

Gimme a break,

Gimme a break,
Break me off his eyeball and kick 'em down the stairs!

Thank you, thank you. If you liked what you heard feel free to leave a donation in the hat. What? I'M A STREET PERFORMER, THERE'S A DIFFERENCE!

Hit the jump for a couple more shots and a video of the beggar in action.

Thanks to Billy J (who's not my lover) and Travis, who don't panhandle, pans handle them. I don't even know what that means but if you're cooking something make me one.
