Unpretentiousil: The Cure for the Modern Hipster

BlogHer Original Post

I remember wearing my Kansas City Royals t-shirt unironically in New York City a few years ago and being stopped three times on the street by people telling me it was hilarious. I know the team sucks, but I live in Kansas City. That was the beginning of my hipster hatred. Seriously, people, what's so wrong with sincere enthusiasm for things that aren't cool? And I grew up on Natty Light in Iowa. It's GROSS. Thank God there's finally a cure for the modern hipster.

Do you know anyone who needs a prescription for Unpretentiousil?
