    gratuitous hipness for its own sake. Also, coolness, defness and campiness. It's an almost universal truth that if you're trying to be these things, you're not, and are seriously annoying to boot.

    Examples are:

    -Wearing berets backwards a la Samuel Jackson
    -Wearing T Monk hats if you're under 70
    -Single track bicycles (good luck with those knees in 20 years)
    -"Creative" goatees and "soul patches"
    -Company names that are puns
    -Messenger bags

    Of course, if you're hip by nature and just can't help it, that's cool. Or Def.
