hipïster - hip-stur (s) n. One who possesses tastes, social attitudes, and opinions deemed cool by the cool.
(Note: it is no longer recommended that one use the term 'cool'; a Hipster would instead say 'deck.') The Hipster walks among the masses in daily life but is not a part of them and shuns or reduces to kitsch anything held dear by the mainstream. A Hipster ideally possesses no more than 2% body fat.

'Is this book for real?' Hahaha. The book was one of the best jokes of 2003. It made fun of hipsters while appealing to them. No, people do not say 'Deck' and 'Fin' for real. But if you do, you are a dork. Ha. It was fun watching embarrassed hipsters buy copies of this at Atomic Books. Every one felt compelled to offer some explanation.... So funny!
