Spotted this ‘ultra’ hipster on Leeson Street [Dublin 2] on an oversized skateboard thing. Appeared to be electric. Apologies for the poo picture, multitasking. I was mixing a gin and tonic at the time…

        People are so quick to be the first outraged that they don’t even bother to read it right…

          I’m outraged that they don’t have a proper cocktail mixer in their car. How do you Dubs get your cars through the NCT?

            I’m outraged that its 4:41pm and no one has brought me a gin and tonic on a mountain board yet.

    He is one cool dude, too cool for walking or a normal means of self-powered transportation that’s what he is!

    1. Well that's that

      ….Leeson St. is infamously mountainous. Of course he is heading right towards the Leeson Street Bridge. He’ll be on the pig’s back – no problem for him.

        Often have I scaled the heights of Leeson Street Bridge, making an attempt only after stopping for fortification and oxygen cylinders at Hourican’s, with my trusty sherpa guide to haul my kit up the last few gruelling feet.

    The point and laugh posts are the worst kind of posts on Broadsheet. It is always disappointing to remember they are part of the same website that has produced some excellent work.

    You absolute nosey, curtain twitching busy-bodies… If I want to manoeuvre my way through MY city, on whatever the hell contraption I bloody well like, (within the law) well then, it’s nobody’s business but mine. (Note, above pic is not me, I’m not even a hipster).

    I imagine Carlos smugly peering out from his Merc, thinking, “hey, loot at this guy, not driving a Merc, haha, who does he think he is, now where’s my camera phone”.. He probably shouted after him… “Dude, get a real car”!

      At least he can bring it into his apartment where it is slightly less likely to be nicked than other means of transport.

    “Man standing out slightly brings out the c**t in locals”

    Its a motorised skateboard, not platform roller skates with fish in them, relax.

    I’ll place this in the “I saw someone not eating a plate of spuds and glupping a Guinness, they must be a hipster” pile

    1. The Old Boy

      Well, someone must defend the spud-eating, Guinness-glupping way of life that is the heritage of every Irishman and woman (glass of Guinness only, may be substituted with sherry if true traditionalist.)

    Notice how he only appears once the Garda has driven by. As for the lad on the skateboard…..

      And The funny thing is, you’re more than likely on the hipster spectrum if you make reference to Nathan Barley,
      which I just have. Dammit.

    if he takes the wheels off that thing,it could be a hover board and he could go BACK TO THE FUTURE.
