"my life is beyond your comprehension"

Someone who listens to bands you've never heard of, wears ironic tee-shirts, and believes they are better than you.

because everyone knows someone like this.

i was working on etsy today when i came across this little diddy,
and that's what brings us to now.

i don't know why,
but jokes about hipsters really make me laugh.
probably because

i do love music, vegetarian living, beanies, coffee houses, organic food, large frame glasses, ironic tshirts, shopping at urban outfitters...
but, to quote katrina,
"I like processed foods, Abercrombie sweats, wearing t shirts, Jeans and listening to Rhianna. Sue me."
and people really can get pretty silly about this stuff.

let's all sit back and enjoy some hipster jokes.

-ben gibbard and zooey broke up. i thought the world was supposed to end next year?
-i take more photographs of food than i do eat it.
-that awkward moment when you see the exact same outfit your young friend is wearing on an old lady.
-wait, so if you grow a beard all year long, are you supposed to shave for no shave november?
-hear song you like on the radio. erase from ipod.
-having to keep up with popular music, just so you can tell everyone how bad it is.
-just realized that the 99% is, by definition, mainstream. motivation to be filthy rich never stronger...

how did the hipster burn his mouth?
he ate his pizza before it was cool.
how many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
pssh. they don't try to change things, man.
did you hear about the hipster who buried himself alive?
he wanted to be more underground.
if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, a hipster will probably buy the soundtrack.

this long video has a few funny bits in it.
"how does it feel to be disqualified so early on in the competition?" "i don't care."
the american apparel instant replay.
"empanadas are the new cupcakes."
"hobos are the new unicorns."
hipster olympics.
and it's so hard to be a hipster when everyone is try to push their beliefs on you.
"i don't have a name since i reject conventional social habits."
"those compost heaps people call outlet malls."
"equilateral's just not chaotic enough for my taste"
"i'm a purist when it comes to helvetica"
hipster confessions.

so ironic, it's not. so un-ironic, it is.
people. are. so. funny.


  1. this is great. ah, the humor. hahaha

  2. How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb? PT. 2:

    It's an obscure number you've probably never heard of.

  4. haha this is so funny. and that video is great. i like when they toss the popular records out.

  5. hilar. i agree with everything you said.

  6. HAHAHA i love this.
    viva le hipsterz!

  7. I literally laughed out loud at this. I live in hipster town. Sometimes I get angry when a band I like becomes "cool" and my boyfriend has a beard. But I also have a strong love for britney spears and taking showers.

    I like to think I'm the best of both worlds.

    PS. Pizza joke? Best. Ever.

  8. when i heard about ben & zooey i was sort of hurt inside. but then i moved on in hopes that she and m. ward get married. she&him you know. it would be perfect. food photographs = my instagram. could i take enough pictures of the things i eat? and could i make myself look any more unhealthy? i never snap pics of the healthy stuff. only the sugary-i might die young because i eat so much crap-this is to die for good foods. i'm soo guilty of loving a song and then hearing it on a radio and hating it immediately. i hate the radio. so much. hold up. i did not just confess to being a hipster. promise. but sometimes i wish i was a hipster.


tell me what you're thinking
