I assume because they're not included on this list that I can safely go on believing that George Washington did chop down that cherry tree, that the Greeks did conquer Troy by hiding in a wooden horse, that Columbus did discover America, that the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, that Jesus Christ was born on Christmas, that John F. Kennedy did call himself a jelly doughnut, that Paul Revere did warn everybody that the British were coming, that the Emancipation Proclamation did free all the slaves, and that Miss O'Leary's cow did burn down Chicago. Stupid cow.

Hey, but ninjas didn't wear black. That's some real life knowledge there. Awesome article, you go.

fusillade762: neuroflare: doglover: Actually ninja did wear black. Just in conjunction with other colors to make an apropriate fashion choice at the time. Mostly, ninja would look the same as any other Japanese doing the same day job. Just that in warfare, they liked to set fires at night and steal documents while the guards put out the fire.

You are the first person I've met that knows the proper plural of ninja other than myself.

So they're kinda like moose, then?


A ninja once bit my sister....

Dwight_Yeast: Pocket Ninja: that John F. Kennedy did call himself a jelly doughnut


The notion that he didn't is technically correct, which is always the best kind of correct.  Also, the dead-on translation is what happens when you surround yourself with Ivy-Leaguers and run things by the State Dept.

I much prefer the variation most presidents now use in that sort of situation: "We are all people of..."


He called himself a jelly doughnut much in the way that someone who says "I am a New Yorker" has just called themselves a magazine.
