I was listening to All Things Considered on NPR during my drive home yesterday and heard them tease a review of Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man’s Chest by “an unusual reviewer”. I thought to myself “They couldn’t possibly be talking about ‘The Ninja’, could they?” Sure enough, after coming back from a brief “sponsorship break”, Robert Siegel led in the story with a discussion of the great ninjas versus pirates debate and introduced “The Ninja” of AskANinja.com, who then proceeded to reviewPoC:DMC (direct link to the non-NPR video review here).
If you’re unfamiliar with Ask A Ninja, you are missing out on one of the Internet’s great simple pleasures. The Ninja fields questions emailed in by visitors and compiles an extremely humorous video podcast on a semi-regular basis, almost like Strong Bad email, only with ninjas. If you’re looking to get caught up, the Ninja’s relationship with physics and Ninja internships (“ninternships”) are two great places to start.
