Hipster evolution

In France, they are called Bobos. In the US, they are known as Hipsters. Thankfully (whatever the term) this subculture has evolved a bit (lovely illustration below), and so Gawker has attempted to come up with a new descriptor. After vetting suggestions from thousands of unemployed contributors (aka hipsters in denial about being hipsters), the site has arrived at 20 finalists.

My personal favorites are:
Ironoclasts
