Thus, I am asked to share this photo with you.

As usual, do not let the "hobo" distract you from the important stuff:

1. oiled ham, obviously.
2. soup-chili
3. gainful employment
4: Jackpot: ZERO

Stay tuned for another tomorrow, plus important information about August 19 and Montague, Massachusetts.

That is all.

That's ta mighty respectable picture.

Did your freind take it himself? If so, where?

I'm curious as to the oiled ham. What type of oil would one use on a ham? DW-30, Canola, Olive? Makes one wonder.

august 19th == old home days in montague, is that when the hobo revolution begins?

Glenn Peters said...

But do they deliver the oiled ham to the hobo populace? Or do they demand fixed addresses? I note there appears to be a calculation there: soup - chili. It would seem this equation results in spiceless, tomato-less, meatless, beanless hot water. Perhaps with vegetables.

Finally, I regret to inform you that your Little Gray Books website currently has the page title of "Untitled Document", which has caused me some confusion -- not merely by being a paradox.

oiled ham....yum?

Oiled ham in a conundrum. Do you think it was really soiled ham? Roiled ham?

Extra large eggs? Eggscellent.

Maybe Michael Sharick (blogless) could share with us where he took the photo?

The oiled ham place by me closed down and I'm looking for a new one.

Here I was, all ready to say something witty about oiled ham and I was beaten to it. So I will simply say...oiled ham.

oiled ham? intriging..

I cannot believe you all missed it.

Clearly what they are implying is that you must be a well oiled ham to gain employment at the Hobo Deli.

Ah, it all makes sense now.

"Oiled Ham" is a hobo sign, you naifs. It lets hobos know that the cured processed slices of pig thigh are available there, like the signs for "nice lady" and "unattended dumpster ahead."

You would so starve on the road.
