Hipsters Spoil Everything for Everyone

Seriously . . .

1) Can I just get a beer? No, it's craft brewed, small batch . . .
2) Does everything have to be artisanal?
3) What's with the prices on BMW 2002s and coaster brake Schwinn bicycles?
4) Why is potato salad at Whole Foods $9 per pound?
5) Four guys, all wearing Fedoras, and at least two are sporting mustache wax . .

Skanksdale has hipsters? I thought you mostly had frou-frou women with bad plastic surgery jobs and their money donors ... I mean husbands.

BMW 2002s are fun little cars -- more fun than 90% of the crap that's on sale new in 2013.

Think again! True hipsters like "vintage".

They only drink whisky-and gin- based cocktails.

Damn hipsters have ruined everything. Air cooled be prices are going up. Why can't they just leave things alone. I finally have money for one and the prices are going up.

Only to show off their "homemade" bitters recipe and "over proofed" rye.

I believe that is correct. My friend, who knows several hipsters, told me so just yesterday.

1. Not into beer but prefer late harvest German wine
2. Not sure what you mean. Instruct from the arts says the dictionary.
3. Not keen on either of those vehicles
4. Is that a bad price? Not sure about Whole Foods. Don't shop there
5. I hate headwear and facial hair.

Not sure what that makes me.

Observation......I have NEVER had a Prius pass me. I have wanted to push several off of the interstate as they drive 5-10mph below the speed limit. I have met a few people that share the same thought on the Prius.

Hipsters prefer W123 diesels, preferably bio and especially WVO. At least the species that resides in my former hometown of Portland, Oregon (Hipsterius Portlandia).

There's different breeds of hipster, depends on their income and locale. Around here they drive Prius' or Subarus.
