Why are hipsters such frauds that they can’t do anything they want without first saying, “Wouldn’t it be funny if. . .” (Everything you do isn’t funny. But YOU are.)

Way to put me down, then bring me right back up again. Thanks for that. Now all my feels are broken and confused. But, srsly, I forgot to clarify. The correct answer to, “Wouldn’t it be funny if?” is almost always, “Yes!” Ludicrous T-shirts, the mocking enjoyment of popular culture, and snarky witticisms, make us laugh, and rightly so. Since when did being clever become a bad thing? No harm in being funny, just don’t call it ironic when it isn’t — which wouldn’t be ironic, by the way, so don’t even start, all of you.
