Pirates vs. Ninjas vs. ATF

Guess who wins the prize for most totally sweet headline of the year (so far)? Redandblack.com for this:
ATF rids Univ. of ninja threat
ATF agents are always on alert for anything suspicious — including ninjas.

Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm agents, on campus Tuesday for Project Safe Neighborhoods training, detained a "suspicious individual" near the Georgia Center, University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said.

Jeremiah Ransom, a sophomore from Macon, was leaving a Wesley Foundation pirate vs. ninja event when he was detained.
...
"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.
Duly noted—don't put things across your face. Obviously though this guy wasn't a real ninja.
  • didn't flip out and kill people
  • no uppercuts
  • very careful and precise? apparently not
  • real ninjas have REAL Ultimate Power
ATF guys would know better than to mess with a ninja. Personally I can't stop thinking about ninjas, they're just so awesome. In fact I think I'm going to go out right now and buy The Official Ninja Book.
