Seattle hipster goes to Portland against his will and meets a Local Portland Hipster. The Portland hipster talks about his deep love for guitar. The Seattle Hipsters says, “What’s a guitar?”
Portland Hipster goes to Seattle, genuinely interested in the gallery scene. He sees something on the wall, by Levi Hastings, that looks just like his Portland neighbor’s work, which is weird. He asks one of the locals in the gallery, “Hey, do you know that artist?” The Seattle hipster says, “I have no idea. I just come for the booze.”
A guy in San Fracisco goes to Seattle. He finds people that understand the poor, oppressed existence of the Urban Hipster. White men have feelings too, y’know? “And they get it in Seatatle.” It was a great moment of solidarity until someone said, “You should move to Seattle. It’s a much nicer city that San Francisco.”
bonus track –
I went into a Seattle gay bar, chat some people up, and everyone starts complaining about Portland.
Hmmm. Defensive, much? The guys asks me, “why are you in Portland?”
Me – “three bedroom for under 160K. How many bedrooms do you own?” (no answer).
