Armed with a simulated weapon and wearing what appears to be a possum on his head. . . .

Carnival Ninjas.

Keeping the small town carnival safe from an overabundance of metal waterfowl and paper targets since the days of our grandparents.

*Not to be confused with the more overtly dressed "mall ninja". According to legend, the Mall Ninja was introduced to society with the introduction of the first picatinny rail.


  1. Now that there's funny, although I do note the somewhat-lopsided isosceles triangle stance.

    Nope, that's funny, too. :D

  2. Whew, scared me there for a minute! The red hair kind of threw me till I saw the hirstute legs!

  3. That is really funny, now I have to go to the county fair coming up to observe!

    Word verification is buingloo? Are you trying to make this hard for me B.?

  4. This is creepy. I was thinking that if he spreads his feet any wider he'll blow out his shorts when his feet slide out and he does the splits. Then I saw the wv: spliterr. Blogspot is reading my mind now! :-D

    Dann in Ohio

    Everett - I can assure you, my ass up close is MUCH nicer looking and I use a modified weaver. :-)"

    That first part was a given, even before seeing the hairy legs as evidence it wasn't you. (I've seen enough pictures of you [well, parts of you], to make assumptions about the parts you haven't shown. Though IIRC, you actually have posted at least one picture of your derriere.)

    I had to respond, simply because of the WV: weiver

  11. Oh how I wanted, and still want, one of those Carny Thompson BB Guns!
