Some of you might be familiar with the trendy, internet-famous “Talk Like a Pirate Day,” a day in which people are encouraged to talk like murderous thieves who once raped and pillaged on the high seas. Now, I don’t need to tell you how inferior pirates are to ninjas. As such, I refuse to celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day, but I do indeed choose to celebrate Day of the Ninja, which just so happens to be today.
Spend the day moving stealthily around your place of work or education. Dress in all-concealing black. (If you happen to live in an arctic region, I believe it would be appropriate to substitute white, here.) Play some Ninja Gaiden. Watch The Karate Kid and/or Surf Ninjas. Assassinate a pirate. Just have a good ol’ ninja time today, friends. In honor of this momentous holiday, I’ve embedded MST3K’s Master Ninja episode after the break, in five parts. Enjoy, my ninja allies.
