Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

the show is funny, but i wonder how long they can make fun of the PNW... it is pretty funny here, but only a session or two worth of material avialable... cuz hipsters are not _that_ funny

It's not just hipsters, they have a ton of archetypes to work from. And when the archetype gags get thin they can just turn them into sympathetic characters if they haven't already.

That was pretty funny. Was thoroughly amused by the overly large hipster earrings and did not expect to see them used in a gag.

I don't like to be "that guy," but those are tunnels. Plugs aren't hollow.

I did laugh out loud three times during that 2-minute preview.

maybe its just because i live here but i think they could have done a bit better job on the humor... i think its a little lacking and if you ask anyone from here we have way better jokes about the same material... most of the aforementioned skit was kinda over played but the last bit with his "tunnels" getting hooked was pretty sweet...
