OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – You ever just want to scream and shout and let it all out? Well, a panhandler in Oklahoma City has a deal for you.

Calvin McGraw holds a cardboard sign at intersections that reads “Angry? Frustrated? Scream at a bum. 50 cents a minute.”

Although most people just laugh at his offer, McGraw said some have requests. “I had one girl who paid me to go over here and get a picture of her choking me.”

McGraw said he moved to Oklahoma from New Mexico to work in the oil fields, but a hand injury has kept him out of work for a while.

Even though he’s struggling to get by, McGraw said the sign is not all about the money.

“I’d rather get people to smile than get their money.  I really would.”
