Lesson #1687 - Vagrants

Consider this list of other hobo slang; if accurate, which it probably is not, there's some pretty great slang that we really should be using every day. Anyway, my only hobo story that I can share is that during the Great Depression, my grandmother's family used to let hobos sleep out in the barn on the family farm, and then one day the hobos burnt it down in the middle of the night and they weren't allowed to sleep there anymore.

Webcomic-inspired lesson naming continues - would have called this "Harking Vagrants" but long-time readers know that 'hark' means a VERY DIFFERENT thing on this site than most everywhere else. And frankly, I would prefer they take a shower first.
