Monday Fun: Hipster Ipsum

In the spirit of starting off the work week right, here’s the first post in my Monday Fun series. My hope is to post something fun and interesting every Monday that’ll get you smiling and maybe even laughing.

You’ll see funny pictures, images, infographics, videos, and more.

Monday Fun! with Julia Borgini on

Without further ado, here’s the first one.

Hipster Ipsum

If you’ve ever created a document, template, or website, you’ll be familiar with Lorem Ipsum. A generator of Latin text that you can use to see the layout of your design without getting caught up in the words.

The human brain is able to discern and un-jumble a lot of text, so stuffing your design with nonsense words helps you focus on the design and get on with your day.

Why I like this site

Aside from just the funny nature of marrying hipster-speak with the Lorem Ipsum generator, I like the drink analogies and vocab used on the site.

You’re given two choices of hipster text: Hipster, neat, and Hipster with a shot of Latin. This speaks to my craft beer and wine snobbishness, while injecting a bit of fun onto the site.

Click the Beer Me! button and voila, your hipsum text.

Here’s a sample:

Mustache Vice banjo, cred next level butcher ugh salvia High Life. Semiotics swag four dollar toast irony single-origin coffee craft beer ethical, dreamcatcher tote bag High Life Wes Anderson beard. Neutra photo booth squid, Shoreditch lo-fi hoodie VHS art party church-key Brooklyn. Vinyl drinking vinegar Carles, leggings skateboard aesthetic cronut synth tofu heirloom tattooed.

I could go on and on with this. Instead I’ll just leave you to generate your own hipsum .

Happy Monday!
