Akron, Ohio – A local woman has adopted a creative strategy in order to get herself some much-desired plastic surgery. The cost of two new cans is simply too much for the woman, so she has taken to panhandling in a bikini in order to come up with the funds.
Chrissy Lance, a 37-year-old single mom, needs $5,000 for a new pair of breasts, so she’s taken to the streets in a pink bikini, camped out at a busy intersection in Akron, Ohio, with a humorous sign that reads, “Not homeless. Need boobs,” with little winky-faces on either side. The perky and amicable brunette told local reporters that she got the idea from – where else – other beggars, reports NY Daily. The only difference is that she made sure to go through the proper channels and get a panhandler’s license before setting up shop.
“I see people panhandling every day, so why not panhandle for boobs,” said Lance, who lives in Rittman, Ohio. “It’s original. I’ve never seen anybody do it.”
(yeah, we’ll give you that)
In addition to being a single mom, Lance is also a college student and a bar waitress at a local pub. She says that the money she makes is enough to pay the bills and live comfortably, but there’s little left over for plastic surgery, reports local affiliate Fox8. She feels that breast implants will greatly improve her self-esteem, but hasn’t collected much so far aside from some googly-eyes and around $90.
Nevertheless, she is determined to maintain her post until she reaches her goal.
“Everyone that knows me, knows that I am a wild one,” she said.
