^ ^ ^ Athlete spitter.
There's a girl from our town who qualified for the Olympics. Has a real good chance to medal. Her family has been fundraising (selling T-shirts, bake sales, etc.) so a couple of family members can make it to London to watch her.
I'm no athlete spitter - if she wins, she will make some money, and if that's all she makes she probably won't pay any income tax on it - but it IS income.
No different than my income.
Is an athlete's toil more noble than mine?
I feed people, and clothe them, and provide shelter, and smartphones fer god's sake!
