Indeed. It may be a win-lose situation, but it was their fault for not befriending you in the first place. And spoons work great, too. I find that threatening to pull someone's eyes out with a spoon works well enough by itself, but you might as well do that to keep the person away from other people. Rope works great to take care of any friends of theirs who don't run away and squeal from the sight of his or her missing eye(s).
