so sad, too bad

As a design geek married to an architect, I think this might just just be the funniest thing I have ever seen. The brilliant folks at Unhappy Hipsters re-captioned Dwell Magazine photos to better express the feelings of the sad looking people in the beautiful modernist homes.

Example: "He tried to focus on the novel, and not how much his bedroom reminded him of a plywood coffin."

It is my favorite thing on the internets since Old Jews Telling Jokes.

I have to agree that room is a little sad. Raw plywood is definitely not too inviting is it? lol!

Oh, isn't that true! I hate homes that have no soul and life to them. I'm much more a maximumist than a minimalist.

My favorite: "He is sad because his house looks like an elementary school. And all the children have died."

Thanks for the laugh, Abigail! You're right, the works themselves are quite nice, but the captions are hilarious! :)
