A Heartwarming Story of Hipster Protest!

With the KC Chiefs' experiencing a TV "blackout" today for the first time since December 16, 1990, the boys are having a hard time figuring out what to do without their usual Sunday tradition of watching the Chiefs find new ways to lose (Chip: "They have taught us so much about failure.").

But let us look instead at a more hopeful story, a tale of lady hipsters banding together in a topless "Freedom Ride" to oppose the removal of a bike path in a Jewish neighborhood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn:

"The hipster cyclists blame Mayor Michael Bloomberg for the loss of the lane because Williamsburg's Hasidic Jewish residents "can't handle scantily clad women" on wheels, said bike messenger Heather Loop, who organized the action." (interweb).

Sadly, this weekend's blizzard kept the event from proceeding exactly as planned, with the cold weather forcing the hipster women to wear plastic sets of titties over their clothes to prevent frostbite. Presumably, most of the neighborhood's Hasidic residents were smart enough to stay indoors during the storm, and probably had no idea the event actually occurred.

Chip: "If they truly care about their cause they should be willing to run the risk of a few frozen nipples."

Here's a photo and story regarding their previous rally (click to enlarge):
