And then this happened:
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." [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.] And Alien and Predator were called in as witnesses!
