Just a funny little story.
My father is in the music / concert promotion industry and one time he was doing an Alice Cooper show. Alice's snake was in shed or sick or something so he needed a replacement for the show. My father calles up the local Radio station and puts out a request for someone with a boa to bring it in. Well...pretty soon he had a horde of people, with boas around their necks, running around all over the place.
Another example of beware what you wish for.
If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist, it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.
