What I Learned About Living In Williamsburg From Last Night’s 2 Broke Girls

I’ve spent years living in North Brooklyn but I really didn’t know anything about it until I was able to see how it was portrayed by 2 Broke Girls, a hackneyed, LA-filmed sitcom created by the “brain” behind Sex and the City and the “brain” behind Whitney. This column will keep track of all the knowledge dropped and questions answered, like: Why do hipsters wear knit hats? Because of Coldplay…of course (seriously, this was one of the first jokes of the series).

This week I learned…

Everyone here looks/is homeless

Here is real dialogue from last night’s episode:

MAX: Hipster or Homeless Pop Quiz, ready?

HAN: Ready!

M: Hipsters wear?

H: Skinny jeans.

M: Homeless wear?

H: Dirty jeans.

M: Hipsters listen to?

H: Radiohead.

M: Homeless listen to?

H: The voices in their head.

M: Hipsters have?

H: Beard and a blog.

M: Homeless have?

H: Beard and so much sadness.

Yep. Don’t read it again or you might start bleeding from your eyeballs. I know what you are thinking: “What if the voice inside my head sounds like Radiohead?” Don’t worry, rumors are saying the answer will be the subject of their very special Christmas special. Oh, wait, never mind, they did their Christmas episode in mid-November—to beat the rush, I guess. That cliffhanger might have to hang in their like that famous inspirational cat. At least, we can glean from this episode that if you live here and you’re bummed out, fret not, it’s not Seasonal Affective Disorder, you’re just homeless.


  1. this joke is at least 5 years old: http://www.theburg.tv/Episodes/3/HiporDangerous/

  2. I watched an episode for shits and giggles a little while ago, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a pathetic attempt to cash in on the hipster trend… Its a shame that now all of middle america is gonna have the idea that Williamsburg is anything like what this show says about it.

  3. VoiceOfTruth says:

    Kat Dennings bewbs look great in that waitress outfit.

  4. KD’s bewbs are the only good things about this show

  5. This show is definitely misrepresenting Williamsburg. In that it’s making it seem anything but utterly loathesome.
