I forgot that "Meh" originated on The Simpons. Other commonly used words we owe a debt of gratitude for: "yoink", "sacrelicious" (but really combining anything and delicious), "embiggen", and "unpossible".
This is a bit old, but apparently there is a passive aggressive war going on in Brooklyn. Hasidic Jews in Brooklyn got the city to paint over bike lanes in on certain streets in their neighborhoods and hipsters repainted the lines. The Hasidim say it's a safety issue and the bikers ignore pedestrians and traffic laws, the hipsters say the Hasidim don't like seeing women in shorts. Objectively, I think the Hasidim aren't arguing in good faith. The way you get bikers to follow traffic laws is to get the cops to enforce them, not by making the roadways less safe for bikers. Apparently, the hipsters had a naked bike ride planned to further antagonize the situation, but a recent blizzard forced them to bundle up some. Oy.
Sure, I'll bite. For your look at traditional media's latest take on Hipsters, I present: The Boston Globe.
"Think of it as hipster fatigue," Lanham says in a genial yet defeated tone."A lot of people thought it would have its heyday and go away. But now it seems weâ€™ll need to learn to live with the hipsters."
Here's the fun story of a hipster con woman from Salt Lake City that took Brooklyn by storm. She has "a huge tattoo of a dragon across her chest and a cute pixie haircut. She was talkative, funny, charming, adorable. She had a tattoo on her back that read 'I Love Beards.'"
