This is easily one of the strangest things I’ve ever seen on the internet. At leas one of the strangest things that I feel comfortable sharing with you guys. To be honest, I’m quite suspicious of the origin story on the E-hobo About page. Whether it’s true or not, it has spawned some truly inspired artwork. The fun comes from reading the amusing hobo names, imagining what they would look like and then gaffawing when you see that the illustration is almost always funnier than the picture you had in your head. The Hobo of The Moment feature is a nice touch for the hobo enthusiast in a hurry, and also opens our eyes to previously overlooked hoboes.

I never in a million years thought I would type that sentence.

What’s not to believe? The Areas Of My Expertise is an excellent book with many, many hobo names in it. John Hodgman strikes again!
