Hippies were invented in the 1960s, but nowadays they are usually just another example of a fashion victim
. They go on about being different all the time, so it's surprising that they all have exactly the same tastes and ideas.
1) Hoopy socks, especially girl hippies, and brightly coloured clothes in general.
2) They believe anything that someone with dreadlocks
3) They are often vegetarian, or worse, vegan, in the misguided belief that this prevents cruelty to animals. They don't realise that vole populations are decimated when a field of corn is cut down, or that humans evolved to be omnivorous.
4) They love anything Eastern, and astrology, tarot cards, and anything else that they haven't taken the trouble to understand properly.
5) They often do martial arts, but can't fight properly. Like they kick you really slowly, so you can just grab their leg and pull them over.
6) Oh yeah and many of them love drugs and hero-worship Syd Barrett, even though he went totally mad from too much LSD.
7) They love lentils because they're so versatile.
My mate Lisa is cool, but she's such a goddamn hippy.
