So sad this didn't make it the 1st time, then fell out of the fog at the end during the double take. Thank you editors for picking this, I'm in for 2! love it!

So, did the rest of the ninja class successfully fade into the shadows so they don't have to help out?

Seppuku is a Samurai thing, wasn't commonly practiced by ninja, if at all.

You know how to tell those ninjas are still in training?

You can see them!

When I first saw the shirt, I figured a horseshoe magnet would be more effective than a broom (the ninja star spikes would tear up the wicker, I think) - does anyone know if magnets work on ninja stars?

Anyone else feeling bad for the straw dummy? Poor guy got a star to the eye.

I was under the impression that most ninja were former Ronin (samurai). Would bushido not count for them at all?


Personally- I boycott all things ninja. I have yet to find any evidence that the original ninja groups allowed any African Americans to join.

Yet they let turtles of Italian descent join?

Disgusting.

I think I'm not alone when I say that I looked to Shirt Woot for clever, funny, interesting, or cool shirts.

I never really get into the 'cute' shirts but maybe the Woot audience has been changing.

Bet they didn't see this coming.



"Like the more commonly known Black Belt, its use varies between arts, with most using it for the style founder, Grandmaster or other high rank, while others use it as the immediately pre-black belt rank OR EVEN TO DENOTE A BEGINNER WHO HOLDS NO RANK" —wiki

Did you actually READ that wiki article before you posted the link?

Indeed- as a kid when I was growing up- for Judo- red belt signified no rank.

Red and white striped belt was used above the higher-dan black belts.

Can someone please help me contact Woot to change my shipping. I didn't realize when ordering the Friday shipping option. I emailed customer service but haven't heard back. And I want to get this shirt tomorrow as I am leaving for vacation for a month.

I was a ninja just like those two...until I took a shuriken to the knee.

Depends on what your ninja stars are made of. would have to be martensitic steel (ie not austentite) or nickel based or colbalt based. or if you are a real A-hole out of some superconductor or rare earth magnets but who would do that...

That would depend entirely on the man. Some men run from anything that is not solid colour- and others run from pink.

You probably know him better then anyone else. (unless he uses facebook- and then Zuckerberg knows him better than you)

Ronin are/were masterless samurai and in their very existence lacking honor, as when a samurai's master dies he is to commit seppuku.

The way of the ninja is almost completely opposite of the way of the samurai, bushido had/has little to do with them.

While samurai can become ninja, doing so is essentially tantamount to casting away the tenets of bushido.

Ninjas were rarely fighters, if they did fight, it was never fairly or with "honor".

I'm dreaming when I'm tired, and I'm tired when I'm awake.

One other point, shuriken weren't necessarily used to harm, it was more of a feint. They'd be thrown in the general direction of the enemy to take their attention off of the thrower, allowing a moment to start/continue running, or maybe drop some caltropes/etc.

I'm dreaming when I'm tired, and I'm tired when I'm awake.

I don't think so, but then, I have zero qualms about shirts that rank high on the lady-friendly part.

(It's national cupcake day ... so of course I had to plug that last shirt. ^_^)

I work in a Dojo. Going to have to check my account to see if I have enough pennies left - if not I'll get somebody to buy it me for Christmas!

In truth, they only run on ceilings. Though one could argue they have the coordination to be able to pluck up a throwing star at high speeds.

I'm kind of bummed. I ordered this shirt, paid for overnight and a package arrived today with the wrong shirt! I emailed customer support. Hopefully they'll fix this

They will. Since service has normal working hours, though, you probably wouldn't hear back until Monday.

Of course, since I bought #0001, I wondering now if I'm going to get the right one; I noticed there was some mix-up last week with Blue (Never)Nude too.
