Jinx Jeffers much prefers the label panhandler to bum. Afterall, anyone can be a bum, but a panhandler…that takes a certain charm and skillset. Not everyone can do this “job” he’s happy to tell you. As the only bu-, uh, panhandler in his small New England town, Jinx is practically a landmark in the shopping district. Known for his ever changing sign, Jinx’s disposition almost always cheery, despite having lost his two legs above the knee on a freak shark hunting expedition. Or was it to frostbite while climbing Everest? The story changes quite frequently.
