Yes, with poison tipped beaks and claws... Dark beauty.

What about ninja pirates? Are they caught in the middle, struggling to fend for themselves in a world which demands people are only ninja or pirate? WHAT ABOUT CHRIS??? (www.weebls-stuff.com- check the ninja pirate. Arr!)

No worries. The FSM accepts pirate-ninja hybrids, because he understands that some people prefer a lifestyle opposite the pirate. But we must always claim to be pirates and follows some pirate traditions. (I claim to be a hybrid too.)

I am proud to say that I am a Ninja Pirate, and even prouder to say that there are many more than I on this forum, lurking about....

What about the more modern image of a pirate?

The late twenties long-haired, heavy smoker, sat in front of his computer downloading badly dubbed copies of films and then burning them en-masse with his huge stack of DVD-Re-Writers and then selling them for a fiver a pop at the local car boot sale?

I mean how does he fit into this equation?

They don't fit into the equation because they are not pirates in the traditional sense. There's a thread about that somewhere:

Towards the bottom.

would a ninja pirate stealth kill a person with a cutlace?
for that matter, what could a drunken pirate ninja do? i dont even want to think about that one.
there are 10 kinds of people in this world. those who understand binary and those who get laid...

sex is evil
evil is sin
sin is forgiven
so go ahead, stick it in!

With a cutlass? Sure, if I felt like it. Daggers work too, and so do hooks and peg legs.

A ninja could use a frikkin' bazooka to take out his target, but would he? Probably not; it would reveal his position fairly quickly. I figure most ninjas resort to silent techniques, and guns/loud arms are for use in desperate circumstances.

I've been known to use silenced pistols and the occasional silenced MP-5, but I'm a real sucker for long, long range sniper rifles. Other Ninjas, not so much. And that's cool too.
