It seems everyone is in a distinct camp here.

I am firmly a "pirate guy".

Obviously.

Everyone else?

Pirates. Definitely pirates.

Although if there was a bottle of booze that had a cool ninja on it, I might be tempted.

I know that pirates like to drink. I don't think ninjas drink. Therefore, I am firmly in the pirate camp.

Um... is it weird that I like both?

I guess if I had to choose I would go pirate, just for the rum and the "yarrrrrr."

Jen
02-09-2007, 08:58 AM
if i were to choose pirates, it would be mostly because of the drinkin' and an eyepatch.

Oh noes, I failed the test!

None
You are 43% Pure Ninja, 27% Pure Pirate, and 61% Hybrid!

You don't even make the cut... You're not a Ninja or a Pirate, let alone a Ninja-Pirate. Weapons: A weak left and right hook, a slow and terrible kick. Special Moves: Running away, Getting so scared that you faint. Your fear factor: 0%/F

Any Ninja would whoop a Pirate's ass. You don't hear about Ninja's drinking and partying because they do it in STEALTH.

Ninjas.

http://www.realultimatepower.net/index4.htm

Hi, this site is all about ninjas, REAL NINJAS. This site is awesome. My name is Robert and I can't stop thinking about ninjas. These guys are cool; and by cool, I mean totally sweet.

Facts:

1. Ninjas are mammals.
2. Ninjas fight ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.

hee hee...

I would say that being 131% of a ninja/pirate/hybrid mix is cause for alarm. That's 21% more than the 110% you usually give.

Pirate
You are 29% Pure Ninja, 60% Pure Pirate, and 58% Hybrid!
Arrgh me matey... You are a Pirate!!! You like to slack off and rade helpless people's towns. Your favorite weapons are swords, pistols, and cannons. You desire money, but you'd rather not work to get it (unless you get to gut somone). Weapons: Long Sword, Pistol/Revolver, Cannon, Hook. Special Moves: Getting really drunk so you don't feel pain and getting really drunk so you go berserk and slaughter things. Your fear factor: 50%/C


p.s. Jen rules...

from the realultimatepower website:

Ninjas can kill anyone they want! Ninjas cut off heads ALL the time and don't even think twice about it. These guys are so crazy and awesome that they flip out ALL the time. I heard that there was this ninja who was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon the ninja killed the whole town. My friend Mark said that he saw a ninja totally uppercut some kid just because the kid opened a window.

That is great for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the clunky, 3rd-grade-level syntax is genius. Secondly, I'm pretty sure this guy is accidentally a genius.

but, shiver me timbers, still a pirate guy.

this whole argument really tells you a lot about a person.

rachac
02-12-2007, 03:46 PM
So does this mean when I go review a show, I need to wear an eyepatch? Because I wasn't all that vociferous of a pirate -- basically, wherever I could make more money (or score more free booty), I'd go with.

And that is booty in the pirate sense.

Although booty in the ninja sense......... :)

Walking through the aisles at Cub Foods, and whose melodious sounds came wafting over the store speakers? None other than Hootie.

So, in honor of Stook!, I went to Long John Silver's for lunch. And sang "I Only Want To Be With You" while I ate my shrimp and fish basket.

I'd side with more of a samurai, but given the choice, it isn't even close. Ninja. Pirates probably have more fun, though. But the ninja crowd has enlightened insight.

Agreed, as well. Cowboys suck balls.

Culture Bully
06-04-2007, 01:17 PM
Not that it makes any difference here, since ninjas are clearly the dominant winners...but when making the choice for myself I had to base it on, as I do with most things in life, Chuck Norris. While he had a beard, it is not out of place to say that Chuck Norris is far closer to a ninja than a pirate. Case closed.

This site has some pretty funny Ninja facts (http://www.writing.com/main/handler/item_id/870081):

"HIYAA!!!" is ninja for nice to meet you.

Ninjas don't give two shits about the Illuminati

On the occasion of a Ninja's 21st birthday, he is subject to a hazing ritual which includes "riding the pony" and a gross quantity of carrots.

um, i gotta say ninjas, 2 reasons:

1. teenage mutant pirate turtles? that just makes no sense

2. pirates vs. swiss family robinson = dismal humiliation
ninjas vs. swiss family robinson = merciless annihilation
