Go Ninja…Go Ninja…GO!
You may be wondering what the hell is up with all this food ninja business. Food ninjas? Ninja star rating system? Well I’m going to set the record straight once and for all.
Now according to Wikipedia, a ninja has two key characteristics:
1. Ninjas always participate in secret spy operations and political killings
2. Ninjas were hired by heads of armies as paid warriors
So now this begs the question what this has to do with me… Well like most things in my life, it started out as a joke at my own expense. Late this summer I attempted to convince people that I was ninja. In fact, I have an entire album on facebook in front of ruins in Sicily where all of my friends and I are showing off the scariest ninja moves you’ll ever see. Exhibit A.
I know it comes as a surprise, but I’m anything but a ninja in most respects.
Why I Don’t Make a Very Convincing Ninja:
1. My inability to be quiet or whisper. I’m 100% Italian. Have you ever heard of a quiet Italian? NO, they don’t exist.
2. My moves are anything but scary or capable of hurting a potential enemy. Although I have been told I’m scrappy.
The Low Down:
Basically, I came back from Europe with the intention of starting a blog and this ninja thing was fresh in my mind. I started thinking about the traditional 5 star rating systems and thought that was pretty boring so decided to mix it up and use deathly ninja stars. I was also trying to think of a name to call my community of readers. I could have called you something lame like my foodie friends OR the much cooler, food ninjas. I think I made the right choice.
What are your thoughts about all this ninja business? I know I’m a strange one but hopefully you all can put up with that!
Also, join the food ninja community already. What are you waiting for?
