The world is getting dizzier…

nydailynews: A group of deaf friends were stabbed at a bar in Florida after a woman mistook their sign language for gang signs.

Alfred Stewart, 31, was partying at the Ocean’s Eleven Lounge in Hallendale Beach, Fla., with some friends who were also deaf on Saturday night when the group’s signing caught the eye of gang-banger Barbara Lee.

And that’s when a pleasant evening amongst an innocent collective took an ugly turn…How ugly you wonder? Let’s step back and introduce to you the heady delight called Barbara Lee

The 45-year-old Lee though the group was throwing gang signs at her, and responded by flashing gang signs back at them, cops said.

The group motioned for her to leave them alone.

Eventually, Lee left the bar but returned with two members of her crew, 19-year-old Marco Ibanez and a 17-year-old who was not identified, cops said.

Kids- is this all beginning to sound like a comedy of errors? Except unlike most comedies there’s no punch line- except that is for the foreboding gash wounds…

Ibanez allegedly pulled a knife and began stabbing Stewart and his friends.

Stewart and three of his friends were taken to a hospital and treated for stab wounds.

A bouncer at the bar who had a bottle smashed over his head in the melee was also taken to the hospital. None of the injuries were life-threatening, officials said.

Lee, Ibanez and the 17-year-old were arrested and charged with aggravated battery.

The moral of the lesson- next time you and your biker friends pull up at a bar, start swinging back some drinks, checking your tough reflection against a tattered beer can and notice a bunch of mute kids gesticulating, annoying you- quietly put on your biker helmet and run as hard as you can into the wall- it’ll probably be the best physical gesture you can offer in return…
