Sunday Reader Mail: The Hippie 'Bag


—-
Dear DB1-

There really aren’t too many douche’s where I’m from, but I have noticed something else strange. There are a lot of “hippies”. Not the 1970’s peace, love, and pot hippies; a strange modern day douchey version.

They wear a s@#tload of tie-dye, they spend a lotta money to buy a bunch of clothing made out of hemp, they have 50 dollar haircuts, but dress like they just crawled out of Woodstock. In their pictures they throw on a smug grin and throw up a cocky peace sign. Not to mention you can tell they only listen to three music groups. Led Zeppelin, Greatful Dead, and any band with “band” in its’ name (Dave Matthews Band, etc.).

So, even though I am a newcomer to douche hunting, I would like your opinion on this, is there such a thing as a hippie douche?

Good night and good luck,
Captain Canada

Ah yes, the Hippie ‘Bag, aka Burning ‘Bag, aka the Woodscrote.

People who think Bob Dylan is this elusive mystery wrapped in an enigma traveling through nostalgic yesteryear on the wave of ambiguous poetic reflection. Uhm, no. The dude is a creepy old guy who wrote some good songs.

Hippie ‘Bags live in a weird amalgam of nostalgia reprocessed through mass media repackaging and sold back to them at premium. Like the Punkbag, their form may be a variation on standard Jerz Guid, but the slippage of meaning underneath the codes of their dress betray the co-opted vacuousness at work within their purchased identity.

So, to answer your question, yes. There are Hippie ‘Bags. And they are poo.
