The Trouble with Ninjas

And this whole time you've been afraid of nerds in trench coats.

In "Really Frickin' Hilarious" news, apparently some schools in New Jersey closed down because someone thought they saw a ninja in the woods behind the school.

Turns out, the "ninja" was a camp counselor on his way to a costume day at another local school. He was dressed all in black and carrying a plastic sword. That's pretty funny in its own right, but the fact that they put the school on lockdown for a half hour has pretty much made my week.

Like, they honestly thought a real live ninja was prowling around the school? Is this a common problem in their neck of the woods? And if it was a real life ninja, did they expect him to summersault through a window and start nunchaking the children? I need to know more. We really need a follow up to this story.

Maybe you've never been to Jersey, but the whole part of the state they say are "Pine Barrens?" That's actually just the parts that ninjas have taken over.

Oh man. When I go to work tomorrow, I'm going to scream, "There's a ninja outside!" and hopefully we'll get to go home early.

Oh, wait. We already have half day Fridays now. I'll wait until Monday.
