A hobo is someone without a house or a job. They will work, though. You most commonly hear of hobos living in boxes, but some hobos live in homeless shelters. in the old days, you hear of hobos hiding on trains. that doesn't happen very often anymore. hobos often stand outside with signs that say "need food" or "homeless anything will help".
I have $5 and i can either spend it on a tasty sandwich, or give it to that hobo. hm, i think i'll give it to that hobo.

hobo = Home Owner Bought Out

it is the acronym for people from 'the Great Depression' who lost their homes when the banks called their loans due (as per the terms of the loan).

All legal, but totally sucks.

Has come to mean many things, mainly derogatory.
Bank: "Mr. Smith, your loan has come due and we are not able to extend you any more credit."

Mr. Smith: "What can I do? The plant closed, my kids are sick and my wife ran off with the ex-plant manager."

Bank: "That's not our problem. Leave or the Sherif will remove you."

Mr. Smith: "Well kids, it's off to the poor house for you, Daddy's a hobo now."

Kids: Boo, hoo. . . .

a hobo spends their time riding the rails and is happy with a bottle of beer a gutair and some friends. hobos are not at all to be confused with bumbs and tramps because they are unhappy and bitter about their homeless state and hobos are happy and they make the best of their situation
