People Who Are Definitely Ninjas, Part 1: Wesley Snipes is the Gingerbread Man


For those of you who don’t yet know (and trust me the ninja communities are on high alert) Grandmaster Wesley Snipes is on the run from the IRS.AA He stands accused of defrauding the government of a cool $12 mil in taxes by not even filing returns for years.AA Now they’re on the hunt for this ninja, and the lost money.AA We happen to know exactly where this money went:AAthese, a couple of these, a few of these, these things… oh and these for the whole clan.AA But just cuz the dude’s a little frivolous with his paramilitary steelo, that’s no reason to be all up in bruh-man’s pockets, is it?

Since he’s been accused, nobody has known his whereabouts.AA But to the authorities, Mr. Snipes is not being harboured by any myninjaplease staff!AA Stop harrassing us!

They think they can catch this ninja?! Ha!!! Wesley Snipes laughs in the face of danger!AA We’ve all seen what he did in U.S. Marshalls and Flight 52 (or whatever)- not to mention BLADE, SON!AA If there’s one ninja equipped to evade the authorities it’s him.AA They’re certainly looking for him, though.

Run Wesley, Run!

Terrorism at 250

"See, that’s the problem with terrorist youths today," said 63-year-old Afghani terrorist Hassan al-Hassan. "They don’t know where they came from; they don’t understand the history. A lot of great people died to make terrorism today possible."

Indian Serial Brides

It’s almost that frequent for Parwinder Kaur- playing the husband game, over and over again.

"Beant Singh claimed he had given her 300,000 rupees (about C$7330) for the marriage in the hopes he could follow her to Canada as her husband.AA He had pawned family jewelry, mortgaged property and taken a loan for the wedding."

Now this is so ninjarish, but oh so clever.AA One can’t really complain about simple ingenuity, now, can he?

‘Ninja’ teens in Oregon not as swift as those in movies

ROGUE RIVER, Ore. — The three teenagers in hooded black outfits were scampering over rooftops, climbing trees "just like a squirrel," and breaking into houses and cars, police said.But they weren’t quite as slick as their Japanese ninja heroes.Earlier this summer, an officer chased one of the wannabes across a school rooftop, but the youth leaped into a nearby tree, said police Chief Ken Lewis.

Breaking branches on the way down, "he gave a yelp of pain," and then he scrambled away, Lewis said.

Last week, after months of investigation, police arrested three teens, two 15 and one 16, and seized stolen jewelry, burglary tools, a map of the city and several black ninja suits with hoods and climbing spikes.

The parents of one told police their son complained of an injury about the time of the rooftop chase, Lewis said.

"I believe that’s our roof-gliding ninja," said Lewis.

Lewis said one of the three indicated they had been active for a year and a half, and the pranks escalated from flights across rooftops and petty vandalism.

Lewis said the teenagers used a stolen credit card to buy, online, costumes and equipment such as hand-climbing spikes, metal throwing stars and utility belts.

Police got their first clue to the activity seven months ago, Lewis said, when an anonymous caller referred to the ancient Japanese martial arts masters trained for covert operations and assassinations.

"He wanted to know if it was OK for his kid to dress up in a ninja costume and run around in the middle of the night and climb on top of roofs," said Lewis.

"We told him that would be both dangerous and illegal. We never heard from him again."

Calling Rastafari…

Joseph Hill

Singer/songwriter Joseph Hill, of the acclaimed roots-reggae band Culture, passed away on Saturday while the band was in Berlin for their current European Tour. Hill/Culture was known for his impact on reggae in the roots movement, and for memorable performaces such as the ‘One Love Peace Concert‘ of 1978, and continued touring consistently to the present.

"Joseph suddenly took ill and passed away in Berlin Germany this morning while the group were in the middle of a European tour. Hill enjoyed a lengthy career in reggae music and will be greatly missed by both fans and peers. The group plans to finish its current European tour and honor all other commitments with Joseph’s son Kenyatta standing in on lead vocals as a tribute to his father." [Jim Dooley, Culture’s manager, from World Music Central 8/18/06].

May he rest in peace in his final escape from Babylon.
