image for HBO's and Hobos Merge in Brave New World Depression!
Hoboes Merge with HBO to save the day!

HBO's, Britain's largest mortgage lender appeared to be at the end of her rope as US economy tanked once again. As the American government has become the Union of Socialist States in Receivership, Britain's big, big bank looked like a goner, that is until thousands of bums who normally just sit on their bums (hence the name) came forward to bail out the bank.

Hobos from all over the United Kingdom joined with gypsies, tinkers and every form of pan handler and beggar to rescue HBO and with it British civilisation as we know it! Once again the poorest of the poor who fortunately have nothing to lose gambled everything they had not. And HBO rose from their ashes like the mythological Phoenix of old.
