That is the stereotypical ninja. I ignore them. Only fools become normal ninja when they could be Naruto ninja! Fight the mainstream!

You think I'm the only Naruto ninja? A lot of the ninjas have read Naruto and are Naruto ninjas. Those that aren't are just lama normal ninjas who are inferior.

[P.S. Fine!]

"Hypocrisy."

I don't think I've ever seen someone correct Imelda's grammar before.

It's also in all-caps. I have some nerve, don't I?

Your grammar powers are weak, Meldi-Won. You need to get writing again.

Honest.
But "hypocrisy" would have summed up the entire rest of your post fairly well. You accused Shadow of doing something, then posted a related word of the word which would have best described up his actions.

Writers have the weirdest arguments, don't they?

EDIT: I'll take the decorations down later today. First I have to get lunch and then do my part of the chores list which some of the other people in my suite made up.

No... I never said that. Actually, if some other ninjas have said that, I agree. The whole pirate fad started a few years ago when Japanese fangirls fell in love with Jack Sparrow and started cosplaying him. Took a matter of weeks, if not days, for this to spread to the West and Europe. Naruto, however, started in 1997 and even before then people had been cosplaying as ninjas (but as the normal, boring ninjas).

I'm holding Shadow responsible for the slow destruction of Western culture. Since he is letting a second-rate Japanese tv show skew his perception of what a ninja is, he is letting Japanese culture envelope and stifle Western culture, leading to cultural stagnation followed by subjugation.

Thanks, Shadow. Thanks for destroying Western culture.

Soon we won't even talk about LoTR as the cornerstone of modern fantasy. It will be replaced--dwarves, elves, hobbits, Sauron, Wizards--by Final Fantasy, a completely Easternized version of the Westerm medieval fantasy concept. It's good that you like your own culture, Shadow.
