Ninjas are also pretty awesome.
And they too have a huge internet phenomenon behind them.
The very popular ‘Ask A Ninja’ series describes what it is to be a ninja by answering questions posed to him by mere mortals.
Uncyclopedia lists a few of the weapons used by ninjas: “swords, kantanas, shuriken, sticks, knives, shuriken, kunai,a banana, ... a really sharp pencil, a really dull pencil, pudding, an easter egg, rolled up newspapers, bubble gum, ferrets, numbers, kunai, hp deskjet 970Cse color printers, a trombone, a travel size websters dictionary, a lamp shade, 1950's porno flicks, a wiimote, a Guitar Hero Guitar, a pikmin, your arm, a pokeball, a rabid rabbit, another ninja, tree trunks, chainsaws, pimp canes, pies, a soup spoon, your face (after they ripped it off), the guitar solo from Metallica's Seek and Destroy, laser vision bears, peoples social lives that Blizzard stole with World of Warcraft, a cereal box, and Axl Rose - pretty much anything except a gun (actually, a ninja could use a gun, but they find throwing the bullets to be more deadly and visually appealing; or they might just kill you by throwing the gun at you)."
The Ninja phenomenon may have started with the website ‘Real Ultimate Power’ – this humour site was created by Robert Hamburger (as a fictional, 13-year-old character with the same name)
According to Hamburger, there are three Ninja facts:
1. Ninjas are mammals.
2. Ninjas fight ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.
Not to be outdone by the pirates, the ninjas have started an online movement to celebrate International Creep Like a Ninja Day on 5 December.
