The East Coast may have Crazy Bedford Ave. Dancer Man, but the West Coast Crazy Robertson Blvd. Dancer Man was at it, like, 20 years ago. So iconic is homeless schizophrenic John Wesley Jermyn, notorious for dancing on the sidewalks of L.A.'s Robertson shopping stretch, that a trio of 23-year old T-shirt designers have gotten in on the action with a fashion label they're calling "The Crazy Robertson," and which sold out in three days at the hallowed celeb spending ground Kitson.

Though Jermyn has a contract with the designers and "nightlife promoters," and will garner 5 percent of the net profits from the line, his sister has said that the trio is "taking advantage of someone who is very vulnerable and very trusting."

Ethics aside, we can only hope that Lindsay Lohan managed to get her hands on one of the $98 "No Money No Problems" hoodies during her recent shopping spree. Girl's gonna be homeless and dancing on the streets of L.A. herself soon enough; it'll be good for her to show a little solidarity.
