Very serious. The thread is very serious. The person having to come up with an idea for his test is very serious. I'll take a look at your Comedy Cafe. Don' t have a good sense of humor. But I do like the idea of using unorthodox weapons, found in the home. Requires imagination which is most likely why his sensei adds this to his teachings. Who is "we?" To Andrew: Very serious also about the place that tp can venture to. There was a certain name mentioned in his post that I find not something necessary to even mention in jest. As far as a "favorite" Ninja weapon, I really don't differentiate. But, I am interested in chain weapons because of the challenge they present to the person learning. Very difficult to say the least so the challenge, in itself, is of interest.
