Unhappy Hipsters

Growing up Minimalist meant she was easily amused.

Yesterday, I stumbled across the site Unhappy Hipsters. Not sure if I would classify it as a blog, satiric commentary, or what. All I know, is it makes me laugh. The droll, witty captions that accompany the imagery of über-modern hipsters and their families (see above) are fantastic. Remember “Mystery Science Theater 3000?” My college roommate and I used to laugh our arses off watching that show. This site is somewhat like that – sardonic statements about poseurs on the screen. Stop by for a look at something different and see if it produces a giggle or two.

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you have a great weekend ahead of you. Little Man has his first soccer practice/game tomorrow. Hubby is the coach. I’m sure it will be like herding wet cats, but fun all the same. Cheers!

I l-o-v-e loved MST3000! Of course I would only watch it with groups of friends because it was soooo much better that way.

I must got to this site... right now!

That is the best site EVER!

Love the picture of the "downer family":
It was part of their family compact: shirts could only be gray or black; pants were limited to denim. The credo certainly matched their come-to-the-dark-side house, but no one could deny that they were kind of a downer.

Haha. "It's lonely in the Modern World." The title alone made me chuckle.
