Autumn and Sarah posted a comment wondering if I would rather be a pirate or a ninja. I have given this considerable thought. Here are some of the benfits of each:
1) Stealth, ability to stop one's own heart.
2) The ability to disguise oneself as a hedge.
3) Cool outfit.
4) Creepy, silent, ancient weapons.
1) Lots of booty.
2) Lots of friends/scurvy dogs to betray and boss around.
3) Peg leg! Parrot!
4) You don't have to train in an ancient Japanese monastery for several decades.
I guess I would have to choose pirate. So long as I can be the Captain. And I WILL be the captain, don't you worry.
Now, to help you decide what you would like to be:
You can try your hand at being a ninja here.
Or a pirate, here.
And, of course, this list would not be complete without a wacky pirate who fights the other pirates on the ship... and they are all ninjas.
And, lastly, here's a link for people who like any combination of the words "Super Monkey Poop Fight".
Now get back to work or I'll keelhaul the lot of ya!
