Bassoonists tend to be a little on the nutty side. When approaching a bassoonist right after a rehearsal, be very cautious until you know if the piece was good or not. If it was good, run, or you will never hear the end of it. If it was very bad, run, or you may detect bad vibes unintentionally directed at you. If it was a trombone, baritone, or tuba part, run. Just run.
