Los Vagos Vagabundos

So these Vagos Vagabundos (lazy beggars) always make me smile when I pass them on my way to work. There are normally 3 of them, who sit on the road and ask for money for beer, wine, a hangover, pot, cocaine, travel and the Internet.

They say, ‘we’re honest and we make you smile – isn’t that reason enough to give us a buck?’

They travel around Spain, and have actually generated a decent amount of press, thanks to their novel approach.

Turns out they are engineers, who just think this is a more enjoyable way of earning money. And they have a full-fledged website! check them out at www.lazybeggers.com.


  1. I’m taking notes on this one. My transient lifestyle is rockin, but my funds are short. Maybe I can stand on Sunset & Fairfax with these sorts of signs and rake in a little more dough. No, there is WAY too much of that in LA. Hola y ciao sneorita.

  2. Recently there was an article in ? Gulf news about beggers in London. Average earning is 55 pounds per day. Expert in this field may earn 300 pounds a day.I am tempted to get a degree in this profession once i retire from my medical profession. NO TENSION- NO STRESS.
