Ninja FAIL

I hope this guy was wearing his Nutty Buddy.
SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle police say a man who thought he was a ninja was impaled on a metal fence when he tried to leap over it.

An officer who was looking for an assault victim nearby Monday night heard the man screaming for help.

Police supported him to prevent further injuries until medics arrived and took him to a hospital, where he was in serious condition in intensive care on Tuesday.

Police spokeswoman Renee Witt wrote in a department Web site posting that officers thought the man might have been involved in the reported assault, but he insisted he was just a ninja trying to clear a 4- to 5-foot-tall fence.

Witt says the man was "overconfident in his abilities," and that alcohol likely played a role.

Alcohol played a role? I'm stunned.

Add it to the list, everyone. Alcohol does not make you smarter, better looking, a better dancer, a better singer, ...

Or a ninja.


  1. but all importantly, alcohol does make *women* better looking.

    and who can be against better looking women?

  2. This guy could be one of those rare Darwin award contenders who didn't have to die to be eligible. (Remember, the award is given to spectacularly stupid individuals who by some means remove themselves from the gene pool, usually by death, but not always.)
