Street Boners: 1,764 Hipster Fashion Jokes [Book Review and Giveaway]

UPDATE: This giveaway has ended and the winner will be announced shortly.
Thanks to all who entered!


Street Boners: 1,764 Hipster Fashion Jokes
By Gavin McInnes

From the publisher's website:

Fifteen years after founding Vice, Gavin McInnes has poured his creative juices into a new endeavor: StreetCarnage.com. Growing in size and influence at an alarming rate, the site's main feature is the new and improved version of Gavin's "DOs and DON'Ts," now tantalizingly called Street Boners.

These Boners have been polished and compounded into a book that takes the best of the site and adds hundreds more gems! With 1,312 photos, hilarious captions, and a harsh new rating system-from one to 10 kitten faces-STREET BONERS makes sure no glorious fashion statement goes unnoticed. Innocent citizens are either damned to hell or relentlessly exalted into heaven. Chloe Sevigny, Debbie Harry, Fred Armisen, and Tim & Eric also contribute their scathing wit to the book, and the end result is a New York fashion bible no bathroom should be without.


My review:
This isn't a book you sit down and read cover to cover
(although I did!).
It's more of a fun, "pop culture humor" book that you place on your coffee table for your drunk friends to flip through and have something to giggle about.
It really is a fun book, and I knew I would like it, but it is not
for everyone.
The author takes a no-holds barred approach to criticizing the fashion faux pas, and commending the cuteness of people seen on the streets (think drug references, sexual comments, swearing, potentially offensive statements, etc.). It's all part of the humor!

Here are some fun highlights from the book:

"If a blind person asked me how people dress today I'd say, 'Just imagine you're grandparents were into hip-hop."

"Partying with your shirt off is a great way to say, 'I'm not here to meet girls. Let's get down to some serious boozing,' which is why your dad likes it so much."

"If this guy is going for 'Time Traveling Events Coordinator in a Bitchy Moody,' he nailed it!"

"Why do parents hate neck tattoos so much? They only prevent you from getting jobs you don't want, and they turn hopeless skater nerds into mysterious art rockers that may or may not have killed a guy."


Want more?
You can buy your very own copy of Street Boners at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, etc.

  47. Haha I'll share one of my boyfriend's favorite jokes with you as my comment:

    Mama Tomato, Papa Tomato, and Baby Tomato were on their way to the market when Baby Tomato, with his itty bitty vines started to lag behind.

    So, Papa Tomato ran back to Baby Tomato, STOMPED ON HIM, and yelled KETCHUP!

    Hahah.

  49. Oh my god, I have been trying to will so many people to give me this book it is ridiculous. REDONKULOUS. I ogle hipsters on a daily basis, so this is perfect. I can be less of a creep while still getting my daily allotment of hipsters, which is something which will be crucial to my happiness and well-being this summer while I'm away from my college campus, and especially during my field school in Florida where the nearest hipster is going to be at least three hours away. TRAVESTY.

    So anyhow. I'll understand if the gods of Random don't smile upon me yet again, but if they do... well... I took a stats class not too long ago and I'll get some sigmas and troll all up in their castle with a few confidence intervals and a box-and-whisker plot that mean nothing but business.
