    CAPE CORAL, FL -- Marcus Webster, a full-grown adult with a job, responsibilities, and who stopped being 10 years old over 25 years ago, was observed walking into a karate studio yesterday, sources confirmed. Onlookers said that Webster did not enter the location -- which the 38-year-old man earnestly refers to as a "dojo" -- accompanied by a child, but was in fact there on his own in order to become better at karate. Upon entering the studio, witnesses reported that Webster removed his shoes and changed into his specialized karate gi, which he purchased with money he earns at his job, and then spent an hour performing a variety of elaborate poses and simulated fight moves. The grown man, who has a car and a mortgage, has been engaging in this activity three times a week for three years, and reportedly gets excited at the prospect of becoming a purple belt. At press time, sources confirmed that Webster was bringing his palms together and bowing to another adult, a 52-year-old man who spends his entire day in a karate studio and who insists that he be addressed as "sensei."

    I linked to this on the Facebook page for my blog as well; there I mentioned an interview with U2's the Edge in which he said the first time he saw This is Spinal Tap he cried rather than laughed, because it showed him how easy it was to make a parody out of his life. I think we martial artists (especially TMAers) need the same lesson: never forget how close you are to being a joke.

    Close to being a joke?? You have obviously never seen me practice martial arts, a joke would probably be an improvement.
