Humor + Violence

Hey Adam, I'm probably being too touchy about it, but I barely survived a beating from a group of assholes on new years eve. Clever title, but pointless violence doesn't really mix well with lighthearted humor.

but...

I'd say there are more fights because of all the bars getting out at the same time and angry aimless drunkards all waiting around in the street trying to figure out how to get home / whose ass to kick while waiting for a cab.
