Working a Hundred Bucks Off of Oprah

NyPo has the report:

A panhandler's shtick was so good that Oprah Winfrey gave him $100 in the Meatpacking District over the weekend.

Julio Bazan, 49, told The Post that Oprah was sitting in her limo in front the Soho House hotel Sunday night when he approached her.

The billionaire TV queen said she had no money and showed him her empty purse, he said.

The hustler said he then joked, "Hey, Oprah, why is it good to date a homeless man? [Because] when you're finished, you can drop him off anywhere."

"She laughed," Bazan said -- and then gave him five $20 bills through the window.

Bazan said he spent the cash on booze, underwear and a steak dinner.
