Pirate or ninja?

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.
5) Anonymity.


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.
5) Infamy.

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!


  1. Good answer. I was a little worried there with the amount of thought put into this question. It is good to see that even though you have seen the good qualities of a ninja you would still choose pirate. I suspected as much.

  2. oh, but i don't know about you being captain right off the bat...i JUST decided on being a pirate...

  3. Yes, but I am much meaner and scarier than you guys.

  4. Plus I already have a peg leg.

  5. you do not have a peg leg! Although...making things up to make people believe what you want is a very pirate-like thing to do...

  6. You're right. I don't have a pegleg. I have a hook for a hand! Aaaaaarrr!

  7. no you don't! Even pirates have to tell the truth every once in a while. Hey, did you hear about the new pirate movie? It's rated ARRGG
