this thread, dalovindj explains it all for us, He being The Master of Hip, evidently:
It’s only hip to get drunk if you are hip when you’re drunk. Obviously, some here have a problem with maintaining their hip-ness while intoxicated, so by all means drink those no-buzz carryin’ wastes of money. No sweat off my back . .
All of those college kids getting stupid drunk and screaming and puking are NOT hip. They are most definately unhip. I do not encourage that behaviour. You see hip is essentially saying the exact right thing and performing the exact right action in every situation. Including drinking. I got no ill will for you if you drink these things, but you definately come across as square, dig?
Maybe square is where you’re at, and that’s cool. Like, um, the wrong cat the wrong frame of mind. Don’t go gettin’ razzled and start turnin’ on your hate machines for me. I’m just spreadin’ the gospel of hip. Dig? I hear squaresville ain’t so bad once you get used to it. They serve Midori, Zima and a plethra of lite beers from what I understand. People get together and sing their Karaoke and drink watered down alchohol and still get to bed in time for the yarn fair Sunday morning.
Quick, imbue us with more of your Hip Wisdom, O Hip One, lest we all become Tragically Un-Hip and find ourselves beneath Your contempt!
And one question - is flaming someone for arrogance Hip or Not Hip? I think I missed that lecture…
Esprix, who is evidently Un-Hip for drinking Midori and not getting fall-down drunk on “real” alcohol! :eek:
Thank you thinksnow. That pretty much says it all.

Oh, whatever - nice backpedal. :rolleyes:
September 21, 2001, 9:15pm
Esprix, but it also looked to me like he was being facetious.

You beat me to the
WHOOSH think snow.
I have to admit, I really like this dalovindj cat.

I dig this cat to the maximum, man. He’s like,
solid, baby, like titanium. His groove is something entirely other. He’s so beat I’ve got bruises. Yeah.
<Fade out to sound of snapping fingers>
Man, you cats took this unhip thread and turned it into a funky little joint. Someone grab that party record . . . and I’ll have another Guiness.

So was this quote from earlier in that thread also in “jest”?:
Obviously gullywumper, we got some lightweights hangin’ out in the pit. These punks not only drink pansy(no offense to flowers)-ass drinks, but THEY don’t drink to get drunk, and then they insult YOU. Welcome to the Straight Dope Pit!
For women it is forgiven. But no self-respecting man should drink those things. And while we’re at it no one at all should drink coor’s lite - it’s lake water. Don’t even get me started on Zima. . .
Oh, and getting drunk doesn’t mean puking or passing out. With practice it can be done quite well without either that or any other similar embarassment. Alchohol should be had for intoxication. Frequently. To drink and not get drunk, you may as well have just juice or your stupid. Liver damage and all. Me, I’m a get drunk every time. I don’t care about the liver damage. As Red Fox says It’d be a shame to end up in the hospital at the end of my life dying from nothing. I’ll die from something thank you very much. Make mine an Absolut and Cranberry!
If I was whooshed, then you need to work on your sarcasm skills.
Damn you’re being idiotic. Yes it is in jest. I couldn’t care less what anyone does or does not drink. I’m just rolling with it for fun. The first rule of Improv is never deny. It would appear plenty of others are able to pick up on my humor. Don’t get down on me cause you lack the skills to figure it out. Chill out and have one of your fruity little drinks. Isn’t your screen name a cheesy 80’s tennis shoe?
September 21, 2001, 10:23pm
Fine, I was whooshed; I recind the OP, and would request a mod to close the thread.
Gonna go have a “fruity little drink” now. Or should I take a pot-shot at your screen name first? :rolleyes: My sarcasmometer may have been off today, but you’re still a jerk in my book.
Before the thread is closed, is it thinks now or think snow? I’ve always read the name as thinks now, but Diane seems to parse it think snow.
At least you admitted your mistake. Even if you did it while whining that I’M a jerk.
Jeesh. They start a whole thread to bash you, and then get all bitchy when you fight back. Just another day in the pit. . .
September 21, 2001, 10:33pm
The two are not mutually exclusive - I can be wrong, and you can still be a jerk.
Hope I cleared that up for you.
And what makes me a jerk? You saying so? You not getting my jokes? Me having some fun around here?
Such a silly little man. . . .
DJ, but bragging about how you like to drink is just about the most telling sign of immaturity I can think of. Maybe I’m confused; maybe immaturity IS hip now. Who knows? As Dave Barry says, I’m too old to care how hip I am anymore.

My impression from your posting history. Y(and others’)MMV.
It’s nice to know my opinion counts so much with you. I feel the love. Truly.

Now, now, now! Do I have to separate you two? Play nice until recess is over.
I wasn’t bragging about drinking. I was discussing the art of drinking. You see many common human activities can be turned into an art. The art of speaking, the art of dressing, the art of walking, and such. You see, anything worth doing is worth doing with style. get it? maybe not. No sweat. But don’t get down on ME for having style. Not caring wether your hip or not IS definately hip by the way.
Hope your next thread works out better. Keep on whining . . .
