To Cleveland is a verb meaning lost in a dump, but looking for a way out. Cleveland was a Hobo destination, particularly in the Kings Run area, and became known as a way station for those who coudn't find a ride out of town. The many scatological references to Cleveland got their start from the Hobo Community
Cleveland me out of this shit-hole town.I gotta catch a ride outa here!

term used in place of $1000.00 in U.S. currency due to the fact that Grover Cleveland was printed on the original but now discontinued one thousand dollar bill. Often used in plural form 'clevelands'
I guess you could say I'm a bit short, 'bout five clevelands.
