Jim Gaffigan on Helping Others

You may have seen comedian Jim Gaffigan in a recent beard comb-over commercial for Sierra Mist. He also does work for Comedy Central, and in one short skit he makes the comments below:

It's hard for me, because I wanna give, but I prefer getting money more...and so I always waver in between "Do I help people, like my brother who's homeless, or do I teach him a lesson?" You know? I mean, why should I give him a dollar so he can eat, when I can use that dollar as a bookmark?

Clearly he's being facetious, but there's some truth to what he says and how people actually react to giving away money. If you watch the skit, watch his bit on holidays as well. Pretty entertaining.
