the Really Terrible Orchestra

This makes me laugh. From the Article:
WHY should real musicians — the ones who can actually play their instruments — have all the fun?

Some years ago, a group of frustrated people in Scotland decided that the pleasure of playing in an orchestra should not be limited to those who are good enough to do so, but should be available to the rankest of amateurs. So we founded the Really Terrible Orchestra, an inclusive orchestra for those who really want to play, but who cannot do so very well. Or cannot do so at all, in some cases.

Moral of the Story: If you suck at something gather others around you that sucks as much as you do so you don't feel as if you have the obligation to improve yourself. I feel like this group could be someone's sociology thesis.
