Hipster Edits (aka “Instagram Quote Rebuttals“) takes photos with pretentious captions and edits them with sarcastic rebuttals, a meme most notably appearing at the site Tumblr4Men starting last August. In some cases, the edited photo doesn’t have a pretentious caption but the subject matter is overly staged or seemingly hipster, lending well to the addition of a caption pointing out the absurdity of the original composition. The edits serve to deflate whatever profundity the original poster was intending, like interrupting a snooty performance art monologue with a loud fart noise (one of our favorite hobbies here at Uproxx). But enough of this exposition, let’s get to the funny pictures. As a bonus, seven of the pictures below are made by us:

When not writing for Uproxx, Caleb likes to volunteer at the legless cat shelter and photoshop the Babadook into all of his family photos. He once resolved the question “To be or not to be?” through the clever use of General Semantics. Your mom thinks you could be more like him if you only applied yourself.
