Hey Hipsters, Good Luck Explaining Your Love of Irony To Your Kids


Wed, Feb 16th, 2011 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

Those irony loving hipsters, contemplates the Holy Taco website, will one day have kids -- likely by ironic accident -- and these children will see photos of their hipster parents when they were young. Since it's really hard for young children to grasp irony, how do you explain to them that you dressed the way you did out of irony and not because you didn't know you looked really stupid?

I get it, I get it. You're wearing a "World's Greatest Dad" t-shirt but, wait a minute. YOU'RE NOT A DAD! Ha, good one. You're wearing that shirt in an old photo. Fifteen years later, you have a son. He sees that picture of you wearing that shirt when you're twenty and says "Dad, were you a dad then? Why were you wearing that shirt?" and now you've got the impossible task of trying to explain your love of irony to your kid. It will be frustrating. Just as frustrating as trying to explain your love of irony to your parents. Congratulations, our entire generation now is an inside joke!
