Turtles T-Shirt

All we’ve got left are turtles. *sad face*

It’s only right that I take a look at a Ninja T-Shirt today, after yesterday’s sad news that Ninjas will soon be extinct and a thing of the past. Of course, we still have the Turtles, but even they’re not safe.

It’s true. It’s tragic, but it’s true. Those men of legend, dressed in black and carrying more weaponry than a small army are to become a thing of the past. According to the last two ninjas in Japan, they’re just not dangerous enough anymore. In the modern age, an age of guns and the internet, an age of nuclear power, there is no place left for the humble ninja. The last masters of this art, Kawakami and Hatsumi, have decided not to name heirs, meaning that after them, there will be no true ninjas ever again. All we will have left are the history books, and the vast collection of films, characters and comic books inspired by these silent and deadly assassins. The most famous of these would be the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, those instantly recognisable heroes in a half-shell. Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael may not be real, but they’ll be the closest thing we have to real ninjas in no time at all. The only problem with this though, is that their future, in the form of a new film, has been entrusted to Michael Bay. They may as well prostrate themselves before Shredder now and let him finish them off. Bay likes to ruin things from my childhood. He already took the Transformers and defiled them, and not long ago he announced that the Teenage MUTANT Ninja Turtles would be aliens rather than mutants because mutants just aren’t believable. Thank God he never got let loose on the Xmen. I hope I’m proved wrong and that he does a good job, but I’m not holding my breath. So, with that, ninjas will fade from the world, and I for one shall be very sad about that.

You can get your own rather fetching Turtles T-Shirt by heading over to Truffleshuffle.com. It costs £25.99 (and some p&p), the sizes currently available are L-XXL and it comes in white. Perfect to celebrate the legend that is the ninja, and mourn his tragic loss. Cowabunga dudes.
