Monday, January 22nd, 2007 - 10:05 pm PST

To help support his increasingly expensive addiction to LEGO, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith is starting a part time job today as a crumbsweep at a local fancy restaurant. “I’m the guy that comes around after you’ve eaten the entrées, but before you get the dessert menu,” explained Smith. “I have a long flat metal utensil that I use to sweep all the crumbs off the table.” Smith will be earning $2.95 per hour plus tips at his new job. Added Smith: “nobody tips the crumbsweep.”
