This font, Hobo,

is the new Comic Sans or Papyrus.

No, seriously. It's everywhere, because people think it's 'fun.'

Stop it! Use a better font in a way that makes it say 'fun,' don't try to use a quirky font that is so immediately recognizable to shortcut it.

Hobo is wide and awkward and ungainly and its default kerning does not work well. Like any typeface, it can have its appropriate uses, but I find it hard to believe that it is the best choice for any situation. Much like its annoying Comic Sans and Papyrus brethren.

Seriously. Hobo is one to avoid.
