Why the hell would anyone want a Cronut anyway?

Far better, and cheaper. Suck it, foodie hipsters. Through a straw!

I don't live close to anywhere that has this Cronut thing, but from the descriptions I've seen of it, I have no idea what the big deal about it is.  I mean, it sounds good, and if I happened into some place that had them for sale, I'd try one, but I fail to see why they are causing such a furor.

The willingness of Americans to line up for anything is baffling sometimes...

"Well, how many frequent flier miles have you got saved up?"

Where did you learn to speak English?

They have them in my small town, pretty good, nothing to get all worked up about. But the Bavarian custard longjohns....

Hipsters "love" something (even if they personally hate it) when it's "new" and "unique", but when that made up fad is accepted by a large majority, they dismiss it and try to invent a new fad or steal an old, forgotten fad and pretend it's something they invented. Their strive for authenticity is destructive.

Probably England. That's English English, not Americanized English.

I don't want to be wasteful, so how can I tell which ones are the males?

There was to be no math, so suffice it to say there's a complicated formula involving bars and Subarus.

I make my own croissants. I suppose I could cut a ring out of dough and fry it, but then I'd lose the chance to roll it around chocolate or frangipane.

Is that a venn diagram crossed with a line chart?

What does the intersection of the sets mean "people who both care and don't care?"

Is there any relevance to the size of the sets (like with a scatter plot?)

Sounds just like high school.

Pretty much is. Parents of these budding Hipsters take care of their financial needs when the child has decided to get an overpriced apartment in a recently gentrified neighborhood (such as Williamsburg, Brooklyn; East London, London, England; Portland, Oregon; etc) with the parents' ideas that their kid is exploring his or her "artistic" side, they create cliques (usually by stealing things from older, more established cliques and subcultures and claiming it as their "unique invention") and scoff at people that don't conform to their ways (despite claiming that they are all "different" and "unique"), they think their ideas and opinions are never wrong and believe theirs are the only important ideas and opinions, they party often, and they drink and smoke alot. These people haven't left high school yet mentally, even though physically they're ranging from the age of 18 - 45 (with budding Hipsters in actual High School coming along). It's actually disturbing, because it is such a large group of people that this is now mainstream (the Hipsters won't acknowledge that fact, nor will they stop acting like a douche to you because you don't fit in with their Hipster ways).
