A Poor Mouth never seems to have any money, yet they have a better house, a better car, eat better food, go on nicer vacations and generally have more fun than you do.

Poor Mouth is the movement of rich people pretending to be poor for fun. This includes buying from thrift shops, buying clothes made to look dirty and ripped, or making "homeless inspired" accessories. The only issue is, once they're bored they can simply go back to being rich.

The punk version of Poor Mouth is known as Corporate Punk.
