French slang for a 'sans domicile fixe' which translates as a homeless person or to put it in it's context, a hobo, a bum, a beggar.

A 'clochard' however is specific to France. As there is an abundance of cheap wine, the clochard is usually seen drinking this instead of the U.K. equivalent of a bottle of white lightening.

In addition, they are always on the Metro and RER of Paris, usually trying to get money or a 'ticket restaurant' off you. The more adventurous ones may provide entertainment, especially on the RER B if it is a direct train to CDG airport. This year I have encountered a puppet show, an accordeon player and some woman who sings for about 10 minutes. Surely these deserve a 10c piece?
Regarde ca la bas! Clochard!

Oh my God, If I have to sit text to another clochard who shits himself on the way to uni again, I am going to die.
