Why you should never pick a fight with us.

As a band, we’re no strangers to dealing with assholes. Some people don’t like our music, which is fair enough, but a while ago at one of our gigs, we had a very strange experience with a fellow who had seen us perform, liked us enough to buy our CD afterwards… and then somehow got it into his head that Wotsit was a Nazi.

YEAH.

We could see easily enough where he’d gotten this misconception from – at the time, Wotsit happened to be wearing that Vivienne Westwood shirt which said DESTROY and had a swastica on it, so initially, it was just this guy being a typical bloke and not understanding fashion or couture. (DAHH-LING, WE’RE A FASHION, DON’T YOU KNOW?)

But even after we explained this, the guy still wouldn’t leave off and started threatening to actually kill Wotsit by pushing him off the balcony (which is really fucking stupid when you think about it because if you’re GOING to kill someone, it’s kinda like the first rule of Murder 101 that you don’t let your intended victim KNOW THIS because then they can take the necessary precautions to avoid this fate. Duh.)

Also, just saying – if you’re going to accuse anyone of being a Nazi, a ginger guy in eyeliner and punk clothes doesn’t QUITE fit the stereotype.By this point, we were starting to suspect that the guy actually wasn’t that offended by the shirt and was just looking to start a fight, so I decided to step in – literally standing between Wotsit and this guy – and told the guy BACK THE FUCK OFF, ASSHOLE 😡

The guy opened his mouth to retort, realised that his target had suddenly switched from a ginger nazi to a girl in spiked platform shoes and a cheerleading uniform and… turned on our friend, who had been innocently sitting by the side and watching things unfold but wasn’t actually getting involved. Our friend was (understandably) a little confused by this turn of events and was all D: WTF I ONLY CAME DOWN TO SUPPORT YOU GUYS AND SEE YOU PLAY AND NOW IM BEING ACCUSED OF BEING A NAZI-SYMPATHISER D:

“Are you actually ok with that shirt?!” The guy yelled, and then, because he apparently wanted to show off just how clever he was with the history knowledge, added “People DIED in that war!!”

I was all :O OMG RLY?? I NEVER KNEW THAT :O [/heavy sarcasm mode]

And the guy was all 😡 😡 DONT LAUGH, ITS SERIOUS. YOUR GRANDPARENTS DIED IN THAT WAR 😡 😡

I replied “uh… no they didn’t.”

Eventually, Wotsit had had enough and said “LOOK, what do you want me to do?! Do you want me to take off my shirt?!”

And the guy was all D:< YES I DO I AM OFFENDED AND ANGRY AND DRUNK AND –

And then Wotsit was all :} ooooh, I didn’t realise you wanted to get me naked :}

And the guy was all ):< AND I – wait, what?! O__o

And Wotsit was all <3____<3

And the guy was all D: D: D: FUCK THIS I AM SO DONE *FLEES*

There’s a moral in this story somewhere. I’m just really not sure what it is.
