Irish Hipsters?

As if I haven’t posted enough today already…it’s one of those multi-culti holy days, though, so there’s a reason behind it…!?! ;)

Apparently, the 16th century Irish were way ahead of all of us in giving us: hipsters. (According to a recent article, anyway.) Have a look at the “glib,” an Irish haircut popular in the 16th century, as shown on this woodcut by Albrecht Dürer, in the two gentlemen on the right of the picture.

[I'll take that one in the back without the mustache. Ahem.]

I don’t know…I seriously doubt those two fellows on the right did all of the things that annoy modern people (myself included) about hipsters; if they had, the gallowglasses on the left would have had words, or more likely swords, to point toward them.

What do you think?
