Hipsters Will Buy Anything: American Apparel Sells $15 Rice Paddy Hat

I've been seeing white people wearing rice paddy hats around town lately and had begun to wonder if Los Angeles was making some sort of shift into an agrarian society?

Presenting Rice Paddy Hats for Hipsters! For fifteen real dollars!

A reader tipped us off to this and wondered if this wasn't some racist foolery and were we mad at it, but I say naw. The person who buys this hat is a victim. A victim of fashion, of no SPF being high enough to protect their melanin-challenged skin, of Dov Charney and his twisted sense of everything, and, most likely, a victim of fetal alcohol syndrome and its attendant lifelong impairment of judgment.

In other words, I pity the fool.
