According to police, the notorious “Weed Man” of Times Square, who is known for carrying a sign reading “Help! I need money for weed,” got into a physical altercation with the “Beer Man” of Times Square, who is known for carrying a sign reading “I need beer.” According to NY1, Joshua Long (aka “Weed Man”) stabbed Wayne Semancik (aka “Beer Man”) during a panhandling turf dispute around 10:15 p.m. at 42nd Street near 7th Avenue.”When you spit in my face, darling, I’m going to hit you. I don’t care who you are, how big you are, I’m going to hit you,” Semancik said. “So the man, he pulled out a pen because I was hitting him, and he started stabbing me in the face, and I have five stab wounds in my face right now.” [goth].

When you have similar signs, and face spitting is involved, you will most likely come to blows. Not to mention, most of our favorite characters that stroll Times Square probably aren’t saints. Side note, I challenge anyone to get Minnie Mouse or Donald Duck to speak a lick of English.

PS These two were eye witnesses of the incident…
