When you travel abroad the local attractions are always trying to draw people in with special deals. Two for one burger prices at OJ McHoolihans, touch wax Christina Aguilera's boobs at Madame Tussauds, etc. But Nagoya Castle in Japan has got the best tourist deal ever. For a few extra bucks plus the price of admission you get to become a ninja apprentice. You get an hour long course and a certificate stating your new status as a ninja in training. Sure, real ninja training takes a lifetime of skill and study, but who has time for that? I just need a quick primer on how to throw a ninja star at an enemy's head. You can learn that in an hour surely. My whole life I've wanted to be a ninja but I was two overweight, lazy, American, and Latino to do anything about it. Now all I have to do is buy a ticket to Japan.

I wonder what the ninja warriors of old would have thought of this. Chances are they would have murdered the instructors in their sleep. Good thing ninjas can't travel through time...or can they?
