A FATHER believes that his three-year-old son, who watches Japanese cartoons on Netflix and prefers sesame snacks to a Freddo, is a hipster.
Tom Booker has cross-referenced son Max’s taste in music, films, television and food and concluded that they are so wilfully obscure he must be faking it to look cool.
He added: “Three-year-olds don’t genuinely enjoy wasabi peas. He just likes the cachet they give him with his nursery chums.
“And as for this Studio Ghibli fixation – I’ve seen him sneaking peeks at Minions when he thinks I’m not looking.
“In the playground, all the other kids are in City tops. He’s wearing the 1996 Aberdeen away kit.
“It breaks my heart he’s so insufferable so young. Still, at least we’ve found out early. We’ve booked him in for after-school theremin lessons.”
Max said: “Dad’s a silly. I like what I like, that’s all. Sorry, could I get an artisanal small-batch craft juice?”
