BATF 1; Ninjas 0.

Not only is the ongoing war between Pirates and Ninjas taking its toll, but now the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is getting involved. Seems some poor guy attending a a Wesley Foundation pirate vs. ninja event found himself being hogtied by ATF agents for being “suspicious” looking:

Ransom said he thought a friend was playing a joke before he realized officers had guns drawn and pointed at him.

ATF agents had noticed Ransom’s suspicious behavior and clothing and gave chase, apprehending him, Williamson said.

“Agents noticed someone wearing a bandanna across the face and acting in a somewhat suspicious manner, peeping around the corner,” said ATF special agent in charge Vanessa McLemore.

Ransom was wearing black sweatpants and an athletic T-shirt with one red bandanna covering the bottom half of his face and another covering the top of his head, Williamson said.

“Seeing someone with something across the face, from a federal standpoint — that’s not right,” McLemore said, explaining why agents believed something to be amiss.

You gotta check out the pic that goes along with the article.  They didn’t just stop this poor guy for questioning, they had his ass down on the ground with a knee to the neck in case he tried to pull some elite ninja moves on them and slip away under the cover of shadows.

Whew! Good thing we’ve got the ATF to keep us safe from those pesky ninjas!

  1. “Seeing someone with something across the face, from a federal standpoint — that’s not right,

  2. We had a Bush protestor a couple of weeks ago in Charlotte carried away by the police for wearing a mask to a demonstration. I had no idea wearing a mask was illegal, but apparently it is.

  3. v for vendetta anyone?
    badass movie btw..

    oh, i almost forgot:
    Pirates are way cooler than ninjas.

  4. Um, exactly why were there ATF agents at UGA anyway?

    Have we gotten so jaded at the thought of Federal agents everywhere that we don’t even wonder about it anymore?

    FYI, especially in the South, anti-mask ordinances are probably anti-KKK in origin.

    And yes, V for Vendetta did kick ass.

  5. I’m still trying to figure out a way to spraypaint a V on the local police station without getting caught…

    I’m too much of a chicken to follow through though.

  6. The Pirate Vs. Ninja fad started with the now famous website: http://www.realultimatepower.com

    It basically makes fun of ninjas and then somewhere on the site it talks about how ninjas and pirates are mortal enemies and want to destroy one another.

    Somehow it has caught on to pop culture a bit. I must admit that I do enjoy a webcast/podcast called “Ask a Ninja.” I find it hilarious.  Either way, I hope that explains the whole, “Pirates vs. Ninjas” thing. It’s just a fad.

  7. This is a picture of my best friend Mark showing off. He’s a lot older than me and almost done with puberty, which is bragable.

    OMFG, This fad was started by a 9 year old KID? I just had to laugh my ass off when I saw that site.
