The Most Epic Hipster Break-Up Text Message, Ever
File this under legendary Texts From Last Night, as what you're about to see is one of those rare circumstances where it's absolutely impossible not to invoke The Sacred H-Word.

The following is from an anonymous Tumblr account called How Hipsters Date, which claims to be "Made in Brooklyn, NY"; their Twitter notes that whoever's running it is running it out of Williamsburg. Which could be written off as part of the joke if it weren't so true-it's-not-funny type true.

Unfortunately, the stupidity and insensitivity that construct the rest of the One Glib Motherfucker Trifecta required to put this kind of thing out into the universe definitely is not. Therein lies another benefit of whoever sent this coming out: Geotagging this phenomenon is the first step to answering the question of whether or not there's an inordinate concentration of individuals like this in the 11211.
