“Ok, we follow these people as the panhandle. Not poor people, no no, no! We get those x-celebs, maybe so older jocks. This is where it gets good…. You’ll love it. They sit on opposite sides of the freeway ramps, or wash windows with dirty rags, all the whole we raise money for chartity! The winner gets to talk strategy and what projects they are doing. The loser, we get cuts of people throwing things at them.. Maybe some trash talk between them too!” Mickey sketches on a note pad while he rambles.
He pauses to check a reaction. Nothing.
“Who doesn’t get a little weird about those beggars?! Now, we let them have good side. I mean what if I handed a five to someone famous and was on TV for everyone to see. It’ll work! They show people buying homes, emptying trash filled houses, making fish tanks out of cars, dancing… for god sake… Dancing?! Remember the celeb boxing?” Mickey keeps trying to sell the idea.
Minnie will have nothing to do with it.
