The headlines across the country this morning proclaim "Denver bets on a county fair, aiming at hipsters," which would have been fine, except for the fact that the best thing about the County Fair, like all County Fairs, is the animals. Goats and chickens and roosters and adorable rabbits all get herded into the hipster pigeonhole. For shame, Associated Press.
What if the animals could talk? What would they say then? Or worse, what if they shopped at Urban Outfitters, insufferably hated everything, were incapable of holding more than a one-minute conversation? Then it might look like this.
Bat Boy was added for good measure because, while he's neither a full hipster nor a full-on animal, he's a little of both.
