Hobo Slang

Specialized Vocabularly: Hobo Slang 1939

Pearl Diver. A hobo dishwasher and who works for his meal.

Scenery Bum. “A young tramp who bums it around the country, just for the fun of it.”

Jungle Buzzard. “A tramp who loves to eat but is too lazy to get the ingredients for a mulligan stew. He eats what is left when the gang leaves the jungle fire.”
