Welcome to the world of Hobo Pancakes, the online humor journal that isn’t afraid to tackle big ideas and fart jokes in the same clause!

For our inaugural issue, we’ve scoured the globe to bring you hilarity in poetry, prose and cartoons.  You’ll find meditations on love, sex and semantics (“The Definition of Love,” “The Abrupt Ending of an Unhealthy Relationship,” “Pause and Affect”) in addition to hard-hitting pieces about humor’s international impact (“Dane Cook: Live from Mogadishu”) and pragmatic responses to globalization (“Dystopia Now”).

Please note that Hobo Pancakes pairs well with a variety of syrups, but for maximum enjoyment, our staff recommends Robitussin Cough & Cold.

With globalized sincerity,

The Hobo Pancakes Team
