Rather than spending money on food or shelter, he would rather spend it on a useless trinket that does not improve his life. Considering the economic climate at the time coupled with his situation, this joke turns into an ignorant statement which explains why he has “…been broke twenty-two years” (182).

One day, he sit on the freezing sidewalk, desperately looking for someone’s help. I walked to him and gave him two dollars. I thought that he would say something grateful to me after he pocketed the money. However, instead of saying thanks, he told me that he wanted me to buy him a twenty-dollar jacket to keep warm.

They encountered a man on the road that had been struck by lightning and was also suffering from starvation. The boy wanted to turn back and help the wounded stranger, but the man had to explain to the boy that they did not have enough of anything to share with him (McCarthy 49-52).
