Poking fun at yuppies and people trying to be hip


There is a very popular website on WordPress that pokes fun at the things yuppies like (e.g., bottled water, coffee, Whole Foods, graduate education in the humanities, etc). The site is mistitled: Stuff White People Like. It would be better to see it as poking fun at suburban/urban people trying to be upper-middle class and hip. One of the best posts is a sarcastic view of graduate education in the humanities to make us feel smarter than others (second best, in my opinion, is a tie between the post on drinking bottled water and the post on worshipping at Whole Foods). 

Be warned that while the posts do not have offensive language, the comments attached seem to contain much meanness and coarse language. Skip that part.
