A Wannabe Hipster
Why did you get a mohawk? You look like a Whipster.
A common name for someone with an obsession with whipped cream.
Not to be confused with Whipper Poopie.
Bill: I see Bobs likes his cream.
Dan: You mean whipster likes his cream.
A white, yuppie hipster of Columbia Heights, Washington, DC
Whipster 1: Yo, wanna get a stickey bun from Stickey Fingers Vegan Bakery then bike over to Wonderland for some Delerium?
Whipster 2: Absolutely! But I need to stop at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for a new turkey baster first...
As defined on the blog “Sexless in the City,” a whipster is a West Coast hipster
. He conveys a kind of style-savvy cool, but is without both the metrosexual
prissiness of a certain type of New York man and the avant-garde pretensions of the aspiring hipster. This is the kind of man only L.A. could breed: the guy with unabashed rock-star envy — in that Matchbox 20 kind of way.
The hair is what gives him away. The top — usually blond — is sculpted into a studied muss of short and manly waves (this works best if the hair in question tends to curl or even ’fro at longer lengths) cemented in place with mondo amounts of product. The face beneath is clean-shaven, except for a strategically cultivated tuft groomed to adorn the curve of an otherwise stubble-free chin.
“Man, when I was out in Arizona last weekend, I couldn’t believe all the whipsters around. Is precision shaving some kind of competition sport out there?!!”
Irish slag for a female gold digger, hussy, or ho.
With no pre-nup the whipster took him to the cleaners.
