hipsters-vs-fandoms

i saw some girl in town wearing a t-shirt that said “aren’t ordinary people adorable” so i got all excited and went over to her like “omg i love sherlock too” and she gave me a weird look and just walked away and now i’m worried that the hipsters are taking fandom references into the real world

hipsters vs. fandoms
  • Hipsters: I hurt so much. I'm not sure if I can heal.
  • Fandoms: JESUS OMG THAT HURTS WHO THE HELL ARE YOU TO THIS TO MY HEART. GOD I DON'T HAVE HEART REMWMBER STEVEN ANND MARK ASSURED THIS. THISJESUS WHY OHHH HE'S MY FAVORITE OKAY KILL HIM... THAT'S OKAY I GUESS JUST KNOW I WON'T EVER BE THE SAMME!!!1!!!!
  • Hipsters: wow hey there cutie~
  • Fandoms: God, who ARE YOU? Just came and made my ovaries explode.... I want you like know! I don't care your four times my age .... I WANT YOUR BODY! Devotes life and everything to this one over humanly sexy sex God.
  • Hipsters: omg guys I'm a nerd ... look at my cool nerd glasses about to go to the carnival will upload an amazing picture of a Farris wheel and a deep caption when I return.
  • Fandoms: shit gotta go to the store be back in a minute blog. Sorry baby. While I'm out I'm gonna get nutella then I'm going to post a picture of my fat ass eating it... so you bitches be jealous!
  • Hipsters: I like gay people.
  • Fandoms: Holy fuck your gay? Be my bestfriend please? I love you!

like 3 hipster bloggers just followed me, and i’m just like 

“are you sure? are you absolutely certain you want to do this? I’m giving you like one chance to go back on your follow and i wont question you… are you SURE you wont regret this?”

because fuck, hipsters make me nervous…

whats the fluffy chicken

gather round kids, a tumblr elder is going to tell you a story about one of the first massively popular tumblr posts

back in like winter 2012? may be early 2013 there was this girl that made a post saying if we got her post to 500 000 notes her mom would buy her a fluffy chicken like this one:

and back then tumblr was not the social media to be on, we were just livejournal rejects i was here for photos of jensen ackles exclusively anyway tumblr was small so 500k was a ton of notes to get

but then the post exploded

i used to follow low enough number of people to be able to scroll to where i left off last night and it was full of people reblogging the fluffy chicken. i’d see the post every time i refreshed my dash and i’d reblog it too, there was an entire blog dedicated to reblogging the post. people wanted to make the fluffy chicken the new pope, there was an actual petition about that

we cared about the fluffy chicken as if it were our own mothers buying us one

there were a ton of posts about it, like the one i distinctly remember is a hipster edit that was a bunch of nebula photos over the chicken saying ‘and i swear in this moment we were fluffy chicken’.

and then the post reached it’s goal and girl didn’t say anything so we were kinda disappointed and then… she tweeted that she was getting the fluffy chicken no joke tumblr EXPLODED like the hipster vs fandom war was forgotten we were all together as one 

all because some girl got a fluffy chicken
