only in shows on Adult Swim shows.

American Dad:

"Yes, I was robbed by _a homeless_."


"Let's go down to the park and set _a homeless_ on fire."

That really sounds bizarre to me. Does it occur in reality?

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
