One of the funniest things I've seen in awhile. Hipster Superheroes!

Greetings True Believers!

Did you ever see those pics of superheroes dressed up like hipsters? Well, they were funny. CollegeHumor.com found them funny enough to create a animated video about them. It had me rolling! Enjoy!

"Please. Hulk only smashing ironically."






Yes, Snake-Eyes approves.

I don't think I'll ever understand what a hipster is actually supposed to be.

yourscenesucks.com--the perfect go-to field guide for scenester sterotypes of all stereostripes--has two different hipster examples to give you some idea: the Fixed Gear Hipster and the Williamsburg Hipster.

*the more you know*

They forgot the bit about how the fixed-gear hipster rides around carrying his coffee in an open Mason jar so anyone within range is in danger of getting it spilled on them.

...Or is that just my neighborhood?

That page is... kind of insulting.

Hipster is someone who likes something you hate or hates something you like and dresses different from you.

There is a more accurate definition but that seems to be how people use it NOW.

It's not that they like something you hate. It's that they look down on whatever you like, and if you like something THEY like, then they'll hate that thing too. The minute a band they love becomes popular, it's dead to them.

This is why my working definition of hipster is "trying too hard". Admittedly, I have-- fat ass notwithstanding-- never been particularly hip or cool, so take it as you will.
