Williamsburg is On Fire! Here Come the Hipster Jokes!

"bring a mason jar of water to help put out it out"
Oh, ok, see, hipsters love mason jars. They put, like, everything in mason jars. (I have a large mason jar full of water in my refrigerator as we speak—see?!) So of course if a hipster were going to fight a fire, he or she wouldn't attach a fire hose to a fire hydrant—he or she would bring water to the fire in a mason jar. But wait, this joke works on multiple levels. See, the amount of water you could keep in a mason jar, even a large mason jar like the one in my refrigerator, wouldn't be nearly enough water to extinguish a fire burning inside multiple buildings. Hipsters are often impractical, so it would make sense that they'd do something ridiculous like bring a small amount of water to a serious fire. Because for them being cool (mason jar) is more important than being effective (a sufficient quantity of water). [photo]
