My new favorite New Yorker

A Times Square tshirt vendor alerted police to an oddly parked truck near his stand. A bomb squad found a crudely built bomb inside the truck.

When asked if he was proud of his actions, he said: "Of course, man. I'm a veteran. What do you think?" The vendor said that he had served during the Vietnam War and had been selling wares on the street for about 20 years. "I don't have too much of a choice, nobody's giving me a job," he said.
