    1. I was walking like a Duck waayyyy before anyone else knew about it. Now I just laugh when I see people walking like a duck. Ducks totally sold out.

    1. Only hipsters deny they are hipsters.

      Non-hipsters are just like, "Wha…?"

    2. I dont know about the internet, but it's true that in my experience the only people who I've heard use the word `hipster' as an insult are people who I've also heard being spoken of as being hipsters (not necessarily negatively) by other people.

  6. I knew a hipster that burned his tongue. He drank his coffee before it was 'cool' - ba-dum bum.

    1. I like that joke better when it involved eating pizza. It was so much more deeper before it became lamestream.

  7. Nice to know hipsters hate hipsters as much as the rest of us do. If that is even possible.

    1. When it's hip to hate hipsters, you become a hipster yourself. You fucking hipster!!!

      ;p

    2. Not if EVERYONE hates hipsters. Then it would be to mainstream!

  8. What if I've been dressing and acting the same way since 1998? 15 years after I find my personal style, I get labeled a hipster.
    My Grandma buys my clothes. (I reimburse her)
    I like weird music, and love sharing it with friends.
    I'm cheap and love my old crap couch, VCR, Nintendo 64, etc.
    Stop calling me a hipster!

    1. Claiming to have done something before everyone else?

      Just like every other hipster.

    2. I have photographic proof of my at least my beard-wearing & vinyl listening ways going back to 1996! I have a beard because I'm too darn hairy/lazy too shave and because my wife likes it (although that is a latter day reason).

    3. If you care that other people call you a hipster then, as with the subject of this cartoon, you probably are one.

    4. I have photographic evidence of me wearing a beard and listening to vinyl that goes back to 1971...I hate all you beard-wearing and vinyl-listening newbies that started in the 90s...so mainstream...

  9. Personally, I find mindless conformists far more irritating than hipsters. Why doesn't everyone else? Trying new things, exploring off-trail paths and being open-minded is a good thing, isn't it?

    Supporting obscure artists and bands is better because they need the money more than Taylor Swift and Skrillex does. How can you argue with this? I don't get it.

    1. That's a charitable representation of the hipster scene. In Brooklyn at least it's not a vast array of differing styles; it's just another flavor of conformity. Or did everyone come up with skinny jeans, fedoras, beards, PBR and Sleigh Bells CDs at the same time?

      Delete
    2. Being open-minded is a good thing. Hating anything that most people enjoy and doing things most people hate for the sheer sake of doing so is not. Hipsters are not open-minded. Hipsters are anti-minded.

    3. "Hipsters are anti-minded."

      WIN.

  10. I'll admit to being a hipster. I honestly don't try to hate popular things, especially since many things deserve their popularity, and there's nothing intrinsically wrong with liking things that other people like. It's just that I have this compulsion to be different in everything I do. I enjoy being different just for the sake of being different. I don't do this all the time (I watched the Avengers in 3D during the first week it was out and it was awesome), but I do it enough to recognize that I derive genuine pleasure from doing things that other people aren't doing, and in those rare instances that something I like does become cool, I get the greatest feeling of smug satisfaction.

    In short, being a hipster can be fun. You should try it some time. Just make sure you do it now, before it goes mainstream.

    1. If you (a) have a sense of perspective about yourself, (b) don't hate popular things and object to other people hating them, and (c) are willing to admit to being a hipster - then you are not a true hipster.

  11. Caring about hipsters... What are we, all still trapped in high school? Grow the fuck UP!!!

    If people want to wear skinny jeans, wear beards, drink PBR, buy vinyl and (maybe) act like douches, what the hell does it have to do with you?

    1. Um... I don't particularly like people who "act like douches" or think that "acting like douches" is just a personality quirk I should have to tolerate...

    2. Welcome to the internet, land of overreactions.

    3. None of those things are sure signs of being a hipster, nor necessary to be one. Hipsterdom isn't an aesthetic, it's an attitude.

  12. Hipsters were around 20 years ago before Nirvana came out and were listening to bands like The Pixies, Sonic Youth, and My Bloody Valentine. Hipsters are eternal. They've always been been and will always be among us. Only the name for them will change.

    1. Those weren't hipsters listening to the Pixies and Sonic Youth twenty years before Nirvana came out; those were time travelers.

    3. Thank you. I kept trying to make it Peanut Butter and... Relish or something.

  14. Who's more annoying, douches or hipsters? Hipsters. Do you know why? Because they hate hipsters too!
