Hipster upset story used his photo, but....

Someone complained that his photo of himself was being using in an article with the headline

"The hipster effect: Why anti-conformists always end up looking the same"
He accused them of slander as well for calling him a hipster.

The kicker: it was not him in the photo nor was it his photo. Sort of proves the point of the article!

Funnily enough, all those "Hipsters" are copying the style that I have used since the mid 70s, and my style was copied from the French-Canadian lumberjacks of the early 1800s. :D

I read this at work yesterday, and tried not to splutter the coffee all over the office; one of the funniest things I've read all week.
