Things That Make Me Snarf - I'm a Ninja!

This week's Thing That Makes Me Snarf is rated PG-13, for all you parental units out there.



And I'm very happy to induct Natalie into the (Semi) Secret Order of the Blog Ninja as a thank you for sending me this snarftastic video. Natalie, if you're crazy enough to want to put the badge on your blog (and I know you are), go right ahead. I'm always on the lookout for more videos, peepul. (Soylent yellow is peepul! They fooled us again?!) If you find any good ones, email me and you too could have this semi-snazzy badge. Internetly speaking.

Once again, I'm struck with the urge to be able to draw. Because I think that the world won't last much longer without a graphic novel version of Snow White and the Seven Ninja. I think that I'd be the Dopey-esque ninja: Thumpy Ninja. When we went to train this weekend, I thumped so much on the rolls that you could probably hear me in Canada. Slayer could be Studly Ninja, because hey, he ran up a sheer rock face to save me from killer bees. I dare you to tell me that's not studly. Scillius Maximus is the Shizzle Ninja, fo sho. G-Dil (my god dad-in-law) is the Shimmy Ninja; you ain't seen funny until you've seen his shimmy ninja. My godmother is the Squeaky Ninja. (And how cool is that? Some people get fairy godmothers, but I have an honest-to-goodness ninja godmother. Neiner neiner neiner.) Anyway, she'll be demonstrating technique, and then my kids will come into the room. And she'll go something like, "And that's how you choke the life out of people who try to... OOooooOOOOHH! BABIES!" Tiny T is, obviously, the Tiny Ninja, and her man is the Flippy Ninja.

Which makes seven. Yeah, dudes. I can count and everything. I didn't even use my fingers.

But then the question becomes... who should be Snow White?

Oh, and don't forget about the contest! You have until Thursday afternoon to enter, and competition is fierce. And really, don't you NEED a bookstore gift card and a bunch of random stuff from me? And remember that if you post about the contest, you get entered in a drawing. It'll have good stuff in it; I promise.

Ohmigosh, that's funny! As for Snow White? I dunno. That's a hard role to cast.

Jamie Eyberg said...

I don't even watch that cartoon and I found that funny. Avatar is my cartoon of choice.

Scillius Maximus said...

On Squeaky Ninja: You forgot to add the Uke's gurgling choke/borderline death rattle that she happens to drown out when crooning "Babies!!"

On Snow White- How about Richard Simmons? He is surely feminine enough.

Kiersten said...

I wish I had a family of ninjas.

One of my "someday when we actually have money...if we actually have money" things is that I will get back into martial arts. I'm leaning toward Judo. Then we can be ninja rivals and challenge each other, and you can kick my butt because anyone who has twins is automatically tougher than 99% of the world.

Angela said...

That's awesome! Who doesn't love ninjas?

Natalie said...

YES! I'm so, so happy. Your ninja family sounds pretty awesome. I'm still deciding whether or not to teach the babies...gotta make sure they got the guts first, right?

Shelli said...

can i be hiarious ninja or do i have to be "Nuerotic Ninja :(

Carrie Harris said...

Hanna: Isn't it? The next time I see a ninja at a party, I'm throwing a cake at them.

Jamie: I don't watch it either. I keep having people recommend Avatar to me but don't watch it. I'm a bad person.

Scillius: That's a good suggestion.
Richard Simmons and the Seven Ninja. I dunno... sounds kind of pervy.

Kiersten: Yeah, I've seen judo, and they play a lot nicer than my local ninjas. :)

Angela: People who are killed by ninjas, probably. But who needs them anyway? Heh.

Natalie: Don't ask me. My five-year-old thinks it's normal to jump off picnic tables head first and go straight into a roll.

Shelli: You could be Hilariously Neurotic Ninja. How about that?

Natalie L. Sin said...

See, this is why I use my middle initial. Can you imagine the confusion otherwise? ; )

Mariah Irvin said...

I would totally draw that book! My dad's making me draw a political cartoon for him. He's basically trying to prove some program or other sucks.

Ha ha. Squeaky Ninja.

Tara Maya said...

LOL I don't know what's funnier, that absurd vid or your absurd Ninja fairytale crew.

LauraBlue said...

I second Richard Simmons!

Suzanne Casamento said...

What did you have for breakfast? You seem waaaay more ninja-y than usual. Like Spazzy Ninja.

Natalie said...

Hehe, it's good yours picked up the roll! My three-year-old is still hit and miss on that one. But he has excellent climbing skills. Doesn't even need grappling hooks.

sruble said...

Apparently I need to start watching Naruto. I wonder if it's still on Cartoon Network ...

BTW, I can teach you how to draw, if you want ;)
