hipsters ruin everything: bacon is the new black

some hipster doofus makes bacon vodkaNot content with having ruined Journey, lumberjack shirts, and Williamsburg; 2008 was the year that hipsters bent their black frame eyeglassed-gaze on bacon, the heretofore innocent treat of our Sunday breakfasts.

Hipster doofuses have added bacon to everything from chocolate to vodka this year. Part of my rage stems from the fact that I suspect it’s probably all delicious (I like bacon, and chocolate, and vodka; why wouldn’t I enjoy all of them together?), but now carries the rancid taint of hipsterdom.

Why do they do it? Part of it is some kind of dick-measuring oneupmanship about how DECADENT and UNHEALTHY they are, like teenagers bragging about how many kegstands they can do, or smoking unfiltered cigarettes. LIVE FAST, DIE YOUNG, LEAVE A DIABEETUS-RIDDLED CORPSE!

And another part of it is just the fine hipster tradition of mocking poor and/or rural people. Something they, swaddled against reality with trust funds and hedge fund management jobs, know jack shit about.

Wake me up when the inevitable “tuna-noodle casserole” trend rolls around, because I make a damn fine one.

    The guy on that bacon vodka blog entry does look like an incredibly annoying douche. I hadn’t heard about this bacon vogue before. I guess it’s the new Pabst Blue Ribbon? Weird. Anyway, the only way I like bacon is either by itself, or used to flavor something like greens or cabbage.

    Ha, PBR! Yeah, exactly.

    Sadly, I’m so out of it, that I had to look hipster up on wikipedia.

    Hipsters aren’t new. They’ve been around, in one form or another, at least since the 1950s. Although my generation is the one that brought irony to a whole ‘nother level. *angryface*
