This comic is inspired by, and therefore dedicated to, my father. He invented “the bums rush” during a family vacation in Ottawa (his threatening noise being pained breathing). Money-grubbing hobos roam wild up there (though “roam” may be too active a verb for what they do). In my memory, it didn’t seem to work and he was solicited anyway. Considering my dad is well over six feet tall, I take this as an affirmation that the homeless are generally insane.
