A popular choice of merchandise for vendors sitting on the sides of highway offramps and busy streets. This, as far as I know, is solely a Southern California phenomenon. It's also a source of certain racist slurs, as all the orange vendors I've ever seen have been hispanic.

There's always something sad about the orange vendors. It's not like they're simply begging, and I really respect them for selling something, but I wonder who's going to buy from them, really? Why can't they get more lucrative and fulfilling jobs? Do they know that if a cop feels like it, they could pull them in for days for working without a business license?

Just more of those lonely people drifting through the consensual hallucination we call "life".
