Failure of the Day: Duh

Anybody ever wonder what it would sound like if 10,000 people simultaneously woke up hungover and remembered too late that they were supposed to do something yesterday? Open your windows, friends; you can probably still hear the tail end of that sound in your neighborhood.

And so it goes that the latest generation of hipsters learn the lesson that hipsters have been learning in San Francisco every 10-15 years for time immemorial: They are very good at organizing benefits and thinking up clever slogans for stickers, but they are very bad at actually voting. Oh well. Maybe the hipster class of 2015 will succeed at remaking the City in their image and alienating everyone who disagrees with them on even a single issue. But I doubt it.
