Two of them failed ninja school. Reply Rhea on January 3, 2012 at 2:02 pm Excellent comment. Reply Feed me infants on October 17, 2013 at 3:41 pm If there were a way to like these comments, I would unlike that just so I could like it again. Reply Izzie on April 11, 2014 at 8:28 pm I second you, Feed me infants. Also, I’m sorry your parents are horrible enough to name you Feed me infants. I would change my name in a heartbeat if my name was Feed me infants Jhonson. (not my real last name, kay?) Reply Kazyyk on January 3, 2012 at 12:41 am Don’tcha think wearing those Ninja outfits all the time would get a little itchy anyway? It’s much better to dress comfortably with the added bonus of being discreet! Reply Gz on January 3, 2012 at 2:58 am Lol each panel are gold! especially the last one!Preppy twit haha Reply Gz on January 3, 2012 at 3:01 am Also, look at those mighty arms of Samurai Nerd-Bug! Reply Kou on January 3, 2012 at 3:18 am That was the first time I’ve ever seen “corroborate” used in a sentence. Nice job…you just took my word virginity. I hope you’re happy… Reply 613 The Evil on January 3, 2012 at 5:11 am What are these “olden times” exactly? Reply crocswsocks on March 23, 2013 at 3:50 pm Uhh… Classical to medieval Japan? Reply Althir on January 3, 2012 at 5:22 am Actually, Ninjas never wore that kind of stuff. Because it’d be like the opposite of stealthy. They wore normal clothes so that they would not attract attention. The black clothes came from the theater, where people in black would stay in the background, move props and whatnot – they weren’t even there as far as the audience was concerned. So when one of them burst out of the background and knifed someone, they were incredibly surprised. Thus, the black ninja was born. Too bad. Cracked.com keeps destroying dreams. I weep. Just, not really, actually. Buzzkill, I know. Couldn’t stop myself. Reply Iforwhat on January 3, 2012 at 8:58 am Actually it is not a buzzkill, it supports the last panel. Reply williamkattwilliams on January 3, 2012 at 5:47 am It don’t matter what they wear anymore.

Reply Mr. Random on January 3, 2012 at 7:09 am By this logic, I am now scared to go to a grammar school or expensive college. There goes my education. Reply Jeff on January 3, 2012 at 8:05 am Each panel DOES get funnier! “Preppy Twit” KILLED me! I’ve always thought that ‘sweater with arms tied around the neck’ look was about the stupidest thing ever! Positively awesome! Reply LoKi on January 3, 2012 at 9:15 am The real secret is that this strip only has ninja in it. Every character is a ninja. (and technically most of the time ninja did their duties in simple peasant garb. Hiding in plain sight and all (at one point they were made the official gardeners of the shogun. Garden implements make great weapons.)) Reply J-L on January 3, 2012 at 10:25 am Awesome Samurai in panel 2! Reply Rhea on January 3, 2012 at 2:03 pm Panel 3 was favorite. I can see where everybody shouting, “Hey, look, a ninja!” could really interfere with the job. Reply Rhea on January 3, 2012 at 2:11 pm And a video (3’48”) on the difference between ninjas and crazy people: Reply pjunk on January 3, 2012 at 3:07 pm I like how he keeps the mask on even when he’s disguised as a preppy twit. Either that or he has a rather unfortunate (or awesome?) cranial disfigurement. Reply NXTangl on December 21, 2012 at 2:54 pm Don’t be rediculous. Black clothing at the darkest hour of midnight is a great way to stay covered, but at the darkest hour of midnight, nothing short of bioluminescence is really going to get you noticed. No, what you want is something in dark green, with some mottled or striped patterns depending on the local vegitation. Or dark grey, if you live in a city. And, believe it or not, ninjas actually did wear anti-ninja clothing in the olden days–they’d strap on traditional farm clothes, complete with a floppy woven hat for keeping off the sun while you planted rice (which isn’t racist, but in fact really was [still is] a staple crop in the Eastern regions)…except, of course, that a real farmer wouldn’t have an all-purpose reed in his pocket (for blow-darts and snorkeling), nor would his hat have pennies under the rim (IDK if they really did that, but I would). Reply Izzie on May 28, 2013 at 9:44 pm Ninjas never wear black P.J.’s… They were like olden time spies, or just plain assasians! Reply Pinkie D. Pyrite on September 3, 2013 at 8:45 pm Either those are special edition, Samurai issued only glasses that disregard time, or glasses!bug has weird glasses-shaped growths.
