My Ninja, Please! 8/17/06: Further Signs of Impending Apocalypse


One thing’s for damn sure… the world’s done gone crazy. Sri Lankan ninjas are killing eachother left and right already – but now they even got buddhist monks beefing over there. My Ninja, Please! I’m not making this up:

COLOMBO (Reuters) – Protesters calling for an end to recent violence in Sri Lanka found themselves brawling with hardline Buddhist monks on Thursday, after a rally dubbed a “peace protest” turned unexpectedly violent.

What is really good when cats who pledge to practice charity on all sentient beings are beating the snot out of eachother? Nobody got killed tho, which is a good indication of the level of ninjahood in Sri Lanka… not exceptionally high. I mean it didn’t even make the list in the rigorous google trends test that we conducted.

Here’s more:
Some more moderate Buddhist monks, protesting for peace, were already on the stage when punches were thrown. Soon, monks’ robes and fists were flying, although no one was badly hurt, witnesses said.

“They were saying we should go to war,” said pro-peace monk Madampawe Assagee. “We like to listen to other opinions so we let them do that but then they started fighting and we couldn’t control some of our people. They tried to make it a big fight but we settled it in a few minutes.”
