For some odd reason, 2006 seems to be the year of the Ninja.

We had Ask a Ninja (let me know if you haven’t seen the videos and I’ll post one … I just figured most people were already tired of him), return in force of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ninja halloween costumes (thankfully no chinese stars in my neighborhood), Ninja toys, Ninja training manuals/videos, and Urban Ninja stunts such as this one:

(if you can’t see the video, click here)

Apparently the Ninja trend is slowly engulfing all areas of society. Now even the homeless and panhandlers are joining in. No, they aren’t dressing up as Ninjas and using their secret Ninja powers to coerce business people into handing over wads of cash. But there’s a disturbing trend that has been spreading for a couple years that apparently has now reached epic proportions … real ninjas who go around creating grief-stricken homeless adults by killing off their parents. Luckily these homeless people are now striking back:

Parents killed by ninja
(thanks Ed Fladung)

Father killed by ninjas
(thanks lockergnome)

Last year I saw a guy in New York with one of these signs, and it had an internet address at the bottom (talk about offbeat marketing). So what does all this Ninja nonsense mean? Is there a bubble in the Ninja market? Should I sell all my valuable Ninja Cabbage Patch dolls and Lego sets? Possibly … but I’m keeping my Ninja pet rock and underoos. 😉

    Little do people know that Ninjas only kill people that deserve it. We are hired by nations and governments to take out evil people they can’t or don’t feel like taking out.
