The 'Hipster'-est Words in NPR's Definitive Piece About Hipsters

hipsterhalloween.jpg
You know it's over when you're an NPR article. Or a costume.
Yesterday NPR posted an article called "The Hipsterification of America." We are momentarily lifting our ban on the word hipster to address it, because it is, indeed, something special, and should be publicly recognized. Never in the history of writing about hipsters have so many hipster terms, most particularly, the word hipster itself, been utilized! Herewith, all the words, in the order they appear, with repetitions included. Hipster, hipster, hipster. Hipster.

No Echo Park/Silver Lake. Because they were before it was.

Any word can be hipsterized if you over-think it enough.
