    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    It's that time of the year...

    Ever since I first visited the Asian World of Martial Arts, in Philadelphia PA sometime around 1988, they've been sending me ads.

    When I saw this latest email, it hit me: if a ninja costume is a Halloween cliche...what is it the other 364 days a year? E.g. a pirate "uniform" on anyone is a costume 365 days a year, sometimes even 366. And that "Nin[-_-]~Ja" headband is something I swear Radford David used to sell...

    So why would I consider a ninja "uniform" (or sexy cop or Halo Master Chief) anything but a costime in the same timeframe.

    Ninja gear on sale along side fidget spinners. That tells me all I need to know.
    Train hard, fight easy.

    Surely that Ninja suit is made out of a garbage bag? I thought that the whole thing about Ninja's is that they were stealthy - wear that and people would hear you rustling a mile off...

    You actually get very different results in a Google inage search if you look up "ninja uniform" vs "ninja costume". Ninja costume yields Scorpion and Sub Zero and other ninja costumes exclusively for children.

    Its funny how you never see an adult dressed as a ninja for Halloween.

    Not for Halloween, no.

    But Friday night sexy time... who wouldn’t want to dress as a ninja?!

    You can get a much nicer headband at the Ninja restaurant in NYC. http://www.ninjanewyork.com/

    That's because we don't want to be seen, obviously.
