go on now walk out the door just turn around now 'cause you're not welcome anymore

I love comments like Zen Wizard's from yesterday, implying that it would be boring to hang out with a bunch of knitters, particularly because he is a lawyer.

Last night, a bunch of us knitters and FOKs (friends of knitters) almost got into a rumble with a buncha lawyers. Lawyers with fauxhawks. Lawyers with fauxhawks and turned-up collars and yellow Ralph Lauren Polo crewneck sweaters who started it anyway. And the bar was on our side and gave us (Jess) carte blanche to sucker punch the lawyers. We were told that nothing we could do would get us thrown out.

Why didn't we? Out of sheer friendship for the birthday girl whose celebration it was.

But we're boring people to hang out with.

Ok, define "boring people" in this contest. I've NEVER been in a knitting group where a fight threatened to break out! That's the antithesis of boring!
