A mythical being that will magically appear and render assistance. No one knows what help looks like as no one has ever seen it. I think it isn't fair to blame help for promises that other people make, and help can't keep.

Someone who is considered scum by East Omaha standards. poor white trashs poor white trash. Proof that no matter how low you are there is someone lower, a scumbags scumbag.
