Unhappy Hipsters

I know how much Neato readers appreciate good captions, so here's a site I just discovered via Ellen Maguire on Twitter. It's called Unhappy Hipsters and it gives funny captions to photos that have appeared in Dwell magazine.  Here's an example:

"Still recovering from broken trust, neither wanted to be the first to try the eggs."

I like this one too:

"You can come out when you can properly explain the differences between Modernist architecture and postmodern ornamentation."

There are lots more where those came from.

Love it. Dwell photos can be so pretentious and the depicted environments so sterile. Debate the specifics of "hipster" all you want but these photos are clearly supposed to show us the ultimate in "coolness" when it comes to living spaces. So why do so many of them lack of humanity and life? It's ridiculous, and I love that this site is calling that out.
