You will be curmudgeons

"We used to put liquid smoke and cardamon in our homebrew..."

“Back in my day, our popular musicians had real talent.”
“Back in my day, our popular musicians had real talent.”

Hipster: This question is almost like that summer road trip with the folks as a kid, and the endless questions in the car: “Dad, what would happen if...? What was it like when...? Where do...come from...?” What will happen when today’s hipsters get older? Will it be like a certain generation talking about being ex-hippies? Will they tell their kids, “When I was your age, we used to put liquid smoke and cardamon in our homebrew, and we used to ride our fixies five miles uphill both ways to the farmers’ market.” — David

There are two kinds of hipsters in this world: (1) those who admit that they will someday utter the phrase, “Back in my day, our popular musicians had real talent”; and (2) dirty, rotten, liars. Like an evolving Pokémon, all hipsters will transform to salty old curmudgeons someday — it is just a matter of when. You can bet your ass they will look with utter disdain upon the fads of the moment.
