Americans don't like hipsters

Americans don't like hipsters much, according to a recent poll:

Just 16% of Americans have a favorable opinion of hipsters, a new PPP poll on the much-discussed subculture shows. 42% have an unfavorable opinion of hipsters, and 43% aren’t sure...27% of voters said they thought hipsters should be subjected to a special tax for being so annoying, while 73% did not think so.

I like the special tax idea. Let's put it on the ballot, along with the Bicycle Plan and Critical Mass.

Let's put all the things you don't like on the ballot!!! Maybe you can say you hated it first. Oh wait, wouldn't that make you a hipster?

Still impersonating me, I see, you coward.

It is fashionable to diss the hipster. Which makes me wonder if there hipsters, hating on hipsters, who don't realize their own hipster status?

Just kidding, more or less. And I'm surely not the first to notice how annoying these folks can be. I don't really "hate" anyone; that word doesn't appear in the post.

Sorry, Rkeezy, that I let this phony slip in again. I guess it's cool to hide behind someone else's name to post anonymous comments.

Ha, it's alright. Maybe Mr. Anonymous is one of the hipsters that this article is about. Impersonating others before it's cool.

I would vote for it, truly!
