Howl from the Mission against the hipster invasion

Sue found this on the San Francisco Craig’s List. The Mission district was / is a working class Latino neighborhood but is gentrifying rapidly.

STUPID HIPSTER KIDS ARE RUINING THE MISSION!!!
what are all these
tight pants wearing,
fixed gear bike riding,
shitty “indie” music listening,
buffalo exchange shopping,
chuck taylor wearing,
pabst blue ribbon drinking,
cigarette smoking,
purse carrying,
spend time on their hair making it look messy,
freakin douche bags,
doing in the mission?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

PLEASE END THE GENTRIFICATION OF THIS ONCE LATIN COMMUNITY!!!!!

Click on the image to view full-sized on Craig’s List. It’s a hoot, esp. the description of the messenger bag contents. Then scroll down to view the Hipster Bingo card.

Of course, maybe it was posted by a hipster, wouldn’t that be ironic.

    I actually made that image for the Columbia University Federalist (a humor publication) back in 2003. I’m glad the internet seems to like it.
