I normally don’t participate in web memes, but dammit, when they’re this funny there is no other choice. The whole ‘Pirates vs. Ninjas’ debate first originated from the Real Ultimate Power ninja site, and quickly spread through the web like wildfire (because, let’s face it, the site is cool, and by cool I mean totally sweet*).
But the ninjas have a lifelong emnity against the pirates, giving rise to such sites as Pirates and Ninjas Tested in a Variety of Everyday Situations and endless debates on the subject.
*I am currently trying to ascertain whether this phrase originated from the ninja website or not. More news soon.
