Good Dick: Actor Dick Van Dyke Hands Out Wads Of Cash To People In Unemployment Line


The supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Dick Van Dyke was recently spotted on the streets of Malibu handing out wads of cash to unemployed Californians. 

While the famed 95-year old actor was out running errands earlier this week, he stopped at an ATM to withdraw cash and then he visited the Malibu Community Labor Exchange, a non-profit that helps unemployed locals find jobs.

The current unemployment rate for the state of California is at 8.5%, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. 

After Van Dyke parked his car outside the facility, the Mary Poppins star greeted those waiting in line for assistance and started handing out piles of bills to them. It is unknown how much money The Dick Van Dyke Show icon handed out, but those who received his generosity probably felt like happy-dancing with cartoon penguins.
