Hipster alert

Today, my boyfriend's transition into an annoying hipster is complete. It started with the not-really-necessary nerd glasses and the Mötley Crüe t-shirt, the final straw being the affected British accent. I'm considering where to dump the body. FML

112 - I actually went to the comment section specifically to question why Mötley Crüe was referred to as hipster. Amazing band, I just saw them in concert recently with Kiss and they brought the house down. :D

But yeah, thank you two for restoring a bit of my faith in the Crüe's fan base ^_^

The more popular, and actually sense-making, version of that joke is--”How did the hipster burn his tongue? He ate the pizza before it was cool.”


I'm with @93. Motley Crüe is way too popular to be considered hipster. If he starts listening to Pedro the Lion and bands you've never heard of before, then he's lost ;p


I'm British myself and I was thinking the exact same thing. Maybe because English was "originally" from England, I mean that's the only connection I can make with being a hipster and a British accent.

OP should take comfort from the fact that it's guaranteed he sounds like a muppet to anyone who's British. It's also worth mentioning there's no such thing as a 'British accent'. There are a myriad of accents within Britain and I promise you, he's not accurately imitating any of them.

Thanks for all of the responses guys.
It looks like this guy will look more like a complete idiot than a hipster. But then again...all hipsters can be generalised as idiots.

@88: No, it doesn't. English has a common ancestor with modern German, but English is a bastard language with a whore mother and a half-dozen candidates for baby-daddy. If you needed to point to one language and name it as the absolute root of modern English, that language would probably be either Latin (from when the British Isles were occupied by Rome) or French (likely from the Renaissance, when everyone wanted to be a Frenchman for some reason).

Yes, English is Germanic, but German actually is one of the languages whose words are -least- donated to English.
And again, this has nothing to do with anything.

Today, my girlfriends transition into an over-analytical, uptight bitch is complete. It started when i got my first pair of prescription glasses and was really selfconcious about the frames, got worse when i had to start buying tshirts at discount stores because money is so tight and finished when i started acting out monty python to cheer her up. Im considering where im going to bang her sister!!
