Stop how much do you make

I think i've been asked how much i make more times than i've done my show,I found the easiest way out is to say that i never count the money so i never know,that pretty much quells any more questions about earnings.
I just want to know what other people say when some annoying punter gives you the 20 questions about the money.Maybe there's a bunch of smart ass remarks that work just as easily.

I usually tell em...."there's so many variables ..(insert filler here)..but I anyway manage to make a living off it".

You can steal that(but you can't use it when we work the same pitch)

I tell those that inquire that I make a good living and that more people should busk. Some are stupid not to. Let the world be filled with more buskers!...I'll just have to find a new pitch.

I seem to only get asked how much I make by kindly old ladies.
I always tell them: "NONE OF YOUR FUCKING BUISNESS!!!!"

"Hey, nice show, so how much do you earn doing this?"

"Well... How much do YOU earn?"

"uh..."
