Ninjas in the Outback

First, it was the attack of the amourous kangaroo. Now, it's the outback ninjas to the rescue. Take a look at this article which was posted on, the same source as the amourous kangaroo:

Ninjas rescue student from muggers

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Ninjas are not known for having a soft side, but a group of warriors came to the rescue of a student in Sydney who was being viciously assaulted by muggers.

Ninjas scared off three men who were attacking a 27-year-old German medical exchange student in an alleyway outside their warrior school, the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper reported on Wednesday.

One of the teachers saw the attack and instructed the students, who were decked out in their black garb, to go out and confront the muggers.

"You should have seen their faces when they saw us in ninja gear coming toward them," the school's sensei, or master, Kaylan Soto, told the newspaper.

Another ninja, Steve Ashley, said: "It was probably the worst place in Sydney where they could have taken him."

Wow. This is really great. Now the great Outback, otherwise known as the place where everything can kill you, has another thing to look out for. There's the traditional animals and crazy plant life that can take you down, the animal lust that you have to look out for, and now, the ninjas. Ninjas decked out in garb who have a warrior school in Sydney.

Ninja sightings are incredibly rare these days, but the outback is one of those areas that I really wouldn't have expected. Sure, it's far fetched to think of a bunch of ninjas jumping all over the Great Wall in China with wooden sticks and taking out tourists that don't respect the barrier rules, but the Outback? Really? Is there anything strange or unusual known to man that doesn't hang out in the outback?

Now, I know that there are many enthousiasts for ancient art and combat forms who still pursue them to this day. There are renaissance societies that host jousts and there are traditional tea rooms that have Geishas who only live to serve. But ninjas with a warrior school who intervene in attacks?

I have to say that the intervention part is great. The poor exchange student was probably as grateful as he was surprised. It's comforting to know that if the last lines of our defense start to crumble, there will still be an ancient clan of dark knights who will come to our rescue.

Maybe this is the solution to the amourous kangaroo situation. Maybe we need to send ninjas to Honeymoon Ranges to protect and defend the women. Surely with their skills, they can tame a wild beast as easily as would-be muggers?

Ah, the Outback. If ever I go one day when I'm tired of living and no longer care if everything around me can kill me, I hope to wander around a paradise with flying ninjas.
