Hipsters

Are hipsters geeks? Short answer: No. Long answer: NOOOOOOOO! Wearing horn-rimmed glasses, hideous bow ties, and ill-fitting plaid pants does not a geek make. Plus, they should never, ever, be accredited as modern geek culture trailblazers. The truth is their questionable fashion sense derives from appropriating incompatible styles throughout history, creating an ungodly mishmash that can only be accomplished by raiding a Goodwill clothing rack that just happened to have a beat-up Muppet Show t-shirt.
