There are 7 ninjas in the first panel. Two of them failed ninja school.
If there were a way to like these comments, I would unlike that just so I could like it again.
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!
Lol each panel are gold! especially the last one!Preppy twit haha
Also, look at those mighty arms of Samurai Nerd-Bug!
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…
What are these “olden times” exactly?
Uhh… Classical to medieval Japan?
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.
Actually it is not a buzzkill, it supports the last panel.
It don’t matter what they wear anymore. Their gig is up:
By this logic, I am now scared to go to a grammar school or expensive college. There goes my education.
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!
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.))
Awesome Samurai in panel 2!
Panel 3 was favorite. I can see where everybody shouting, “Hey, look, a ninja!” could really interfere with the job.
And a video (3’48″) on the difference between ninjas and crazy people:
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.
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).
Ninjas never wear black P.J.’s… They were like olden time spies, or just plain assasians!
Either those are special edition, Samurai issued only glasses that disregard time, or glasses!bug has weird glasses-shaped growths.
