Los Angeles: The Ninja of AskANinja.com and The Ninja Handbook will attack swashbucklers and scurvy dogs worldwide on International Talk Like a Pirate Day, Sept. 19. For a solid hour, he will answer questions live on his uStream.tv channel at 3pm PDT/ 6 pm EST.
“Ninjas just pity pirates,” said the Ninja. “They are just poorly educated, physically disabled people with substance abuse problems. They should not be celebrated, they should be put into a twelve step program or killed.”
According to The Ninja Handbook, just released by Three Rivers Press/Crown, everyone who reads it will surely be killed.
“Ninjas don’t just kill pirates,” said the Ninja. “We kill everything, really, really well.”
International Talk Like a Pirate Day (ITLAPD) is a parodic holiday invented in 1995 by John Baur and Mark Summers. More information is available at their web site, talklikeapirate.com.
