This story just warms my heart:

An armed robber picked the wrong target when he raided an Australian bar where a biker gang was holding a meeting. He ended up hog-tied and in a hospital.

There were around 50 bikers holding a meeting at the bar. I have to wonder about their behavior. Did they follow Robert’s Rules of Order? Did they not ride their motorcycles to the meeting and park them outside? How could 50 members of a biker club—at a bar mind you—be so quiet that two idiots didn’t see or hear them despite walking through the room to get to the cashier? And finally, they only hog-tied the SOB?

Jester [Did I mention the person chairing the meeting only gave his name as “Jester”?-ed] said the robbers had walked past the bikers as they entered the bar but apparently failed to notice them, perhaps because the ski masks obscured their vision.

And the money quote:

"I don't think he did his homework very well," Jester said of the ringleader. "He picked the wrong night."

Dude, these were some very civilized bikers!
