    LOL! You just put my poll-making skillz to shame! Your poll is a comedic accomplishment.

    I meant to add and forgot: Uh sir, the town manager's office is that way, and watch them head in that direction while eating your egg salad sandwich

    if a mod can add this, that'd be awesome

    They'll need to be approved just like everyone else. Please, ninja, sign in, and I'll go over the submittal requirements as soon as possible.
    And that concludes staff’s presentation...

    Defense of the office is the interns job. Ninjas, FBI, Zombies... I don't care, they put out that fire.

    Interns all the way! Thankfully they all share the office next to the entrance of the office. My office is in the belfry so they have a lot of stairs to hike up in order to get to me!

    I have no fear. My office is under the protection of The Knights Who Say "Ni".

    Disappointed there was no mention of pirates. Pirates and ninjas are natural enemies. I'd imagine there are enough pirates around to keep the ninjas at bay.

    Well, since I work from home, I'd sic my ninja-like cat on 'em. She's an agile and stealthy creature.

    I'd post a picture of her in action, but she's taking a nap and doesn't want to be disturbed.

    I have to agree that sending in the army of interns is the best idea.


    We don't pay them to sit around and do nothing all day... Wait, we don't pay them at all!

    I'm really glad this thread was started because I've been stressing about this for a while. The homeless guy that lives in the alley next to our building swears he has magical powers that can keep the ninjas and the other demons away, but I'm not sure how much I trust him to not be passed out when they attack. I'm afraid we have few pirates around here, but I am a planning nazi. Do you know if ninjas fear nazis?

    Per Section 55.002 of the Zoning Ordinance,
    Except as hereinafter specified, no building, structure or premises shall hereafter be used or occupied, and no building or part thereof or other structure shall be erected, moved, placed, reconstructed, extended, enlarged or altered, except in conformance with the regulations herein specified for the zoning district in which it is located.
    Section 55.225 (B) and (C), which regulates uses in the CBD does not include "fight clubs", "dojo", or "battle ground" as a use permitted by right or a special land use. Therefore I need to ask you to cease and desist. Failure to do to may result in further code enforcement action including, but not limited to, civil infraction tickets, court actions, and me opening up a can of whoop @$$. We appreciate your anticipated cooperation.

    Thank you and have a nice day.
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    I don my ninja sarugaku hanging on the back of my door and start attacking the fruit in the break room.

    They are my ninjas. They will overthrow the existing CM and install me as the new CM with dictatorial powers since I'm the one who told the ninjas about the unguarded back door to city hall. Too bad if the HR director casts her lot with the old CM. A little blood may have to be spilled.

    I would only hope that my death at the hands of a ninja would be swift and painless.

    thanks!

    I think it's hilarious and yet sad we would all throw our interns to a ninja without hesitation

    Off-topic:
    Apparently Dan only entrusts that power/responsibility to the 'cool' mods .

    Can't say I blame him.

    I'd ask the ninja why he hates America, but since that wasn't an option, I picked the whips and chains one.

    Mmmm...egg salad...I'd vote for this one if I hadn't already voted.

    (And now, back to my ravioli-and-meatball breakfast...maybe I'll make some egg salad for lunch)
