Hipsters Came From Cavemen
We have oft wondered, where exactly did hipsters come from (and, more intriguing, how did "hipster," a word with 1940s jazz origins, become co-opted to indicate the generic bespectacled fedora-hat-wearing usually white people hogging the name in current society?). Thus, it is with some pleasure (minus the minor annoyance, like an inspect bite, gained from the fact that we are still talking about hipsters) that we viewed this video. Which was arguably created by hipsters. Still, it's amusing. We miss beatniks. But it's all just circle of life, right? Right. Hipsters are just...humans.
