Now, without further ado, here's the Ninja site I mentioned last time. It's http://www.realultimatepower.net, and it's a great parody site allegedly written and maintained by a 12-year-old boy named Robert Hamburger. He claims to be an expert on ninjas, having studied them for "several weeks" and watched a lot of movies. Here are the facts about ninjas, according to Robert:
1. Ninjas are mammals.
2. Ninjas fight ALL the time.
3. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.
The site is chock full o' hilarious insights about the behavior and activities of ninjas, all written in the voice of a rabidly hyper young boy. Hamburger also instructs his browsers on using a frisbee to commit Seppuku, "the ancient art of killing yourself if you get super pissed and can't find anybody else to kill."
What I really love about it is that it's the kind of site Andy Kaufmann would've come up with had he lived to see the Internet boom. There's a Hate Mail link featuring letter after irate letter supposedly penned by people who find his site appalling and want him banned from the Net. There's even an "MSNBC link" to a lawsuit he claims to be involved in: http://www.realultimatepower.net/index4.htm
