2. Where are the hipster angels?

Hipster star?
I think the wise men (or wise guys) should be riding bikes or maybe skateboards. I see a lot of bikes among hipsters but no segways.

I guess it still needs a little work.

praises to 'the greatest president ever' - or so he claims

and the angel would be an immigration lawyer.

9. There's not enough beardage going on here.

Or flannel. And the Magi shouldn't be bringing Amazon boxes, but jars of their own homemade pickles or home-brewed beer. Also, I see no piercings or tattoos.

They just seem way to clean. "Mary" doesn't have a rockabilly hairdo or cat-eye glasses? This isn't hipster.

Gives everyone a chance to charge their devices.
At least while the sun shines.

18. It's a modern slant on the Nativity scene

The manger is solar powered.
Joseph is taking a selfie of Jesus, Mary and himself.
The manger animals are depicted by modern standards.
The shepherd standing with the animals is using an iPad. Probably to google the manger which is right there.
The three kings are delivery people with Amazon wrapped packages.
Instead of riding on camels they are riding segways.

Every part of it is clever and humorous! I love Joseph taking a selfie of the family.

Whereas RWNJs cannot. When was the last time Orange Hitler laughed at himself? Certainly not when Obama roasted him royally about the birther-shit.

BYW, other than good glasses frames and shopping at Trader Joe’s, I have little in common with the “Hipsters” as depicted here, but I GET IT, and it’s darn funny!

Because ONLY outsiders are truly FUNNY, punching upward at overstuffed targets. RW “humor” consists of punching downward at the weak, or anyone not white, Christian, etc.

Think of the greatest social-comment comics: Lenny Bruce, Godfrey Cambridge, Mort Sahl, Woody Allen, Mike Nichols and Elaine May, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, etc. ALL were outsiders looking in. Even absurdist comics like Jonathan Winters, Steve Martin and Robin Williams were/are outsiders, dealing with skewed perception and nuance.

Try to name a genuinely funny right-wing, red-state comic. Dennis Miller? Jeff Foxworthy? Larry the Cable Guy? Lightweights all. Not funny to perceptive, sharper audiences. The RW just can’t do humor.

It's terrific.
