While the rest of western civilization was taking in the British Open and just generally partaking in normal, cool shit that one typically does during a summer weekend, Germany’s hipster scene gathered in Berlin to crown the ultimate hipster in the second running of the Hipster Olympics.
Over the weekend, a congregation of the young and the inebriated competed in a number of events to determine who would be crowned Berlin’s biggest hipster, an impressive title given the city’s reputation for artsy sloth. The competition was the second annual celebration of the Games and featured such events as confetti tossing, horned-rimmed glasses throwing and record spinning.
I bet that confetti toss contest was real knee-slapper. Supposedly, the winner threw it three feet. The cloth tote sack race was also a hot item on the agenda. Rumor has it that only half of the expected crowd showed up. The other half, apparently, had somewhere better to be. They probably went to some super local underground Olympics that wasn’t advertised.
The winners and the losers accepted the results with grace, insisting that they really didn’t care anyway.
