I expected more IRL Fruit Ninjas

#1 Posted by Fobwashed (2554 posts) -

After watching Norm's shameful fruit ninja swording abilities (baseball bat swings?), I went to youtube in hopes of filling the hole in my heart I didn't know I had. There are only 2 videos and both of them pretty awful. How is it in a world where you can find ridiculously specific nonsense on youTube, there aren't more people either irl fruit ninjaing?

Someone, please fill this void.

You're right, these YouTube videos are terrible.

It would have made a specific user even angrier! Eat your fruits and vegetables, kids.

I hope you realize there are starving kids in Africa that would have loved to eat all those delicious fruits Norm was cutting down. 
EDIT:  Yeah, none of those videos are any good.

Well I think you've found yourself a new life's mission Mr. Fobwashed.

@Fripplebubby: If I had a sword, I'd be out there right now making a video. Those things are expensive =\

@Fobwashed: Well, for a full tang sword yes. Smaller percentages of tang are cheaper.

Disclaimer: I have zero knowledge on swords, but one time my friend bought one and it said "full tang" on the box, and it was the source of much ridicule from me.

Was anybody else surprised that Norm didn't run somebody through? Not exactly the most coordinated of the WM brethren.

@courtney12490: Yeah every time he started to swing I expected it to fly into Will. For the first time ever I was legitimately scared for them.

Completely unrelated note: I am very sad I didn't get a new John Drake avatar...

I found it simultaneously hilarious and terrifying. I really thought that thing was going to go flying out of his hands. Now I just want to him to practice some more so I can see what he can do as a true fruit ninja.

Gallagher was the ultimate fruit ninja.

I don't think they picked Norm because of his skills with a sword, they picked him because he's Asian.

@Fobwashed:  Check out Shihan Kenneth. I think he holds the world record for most slicing the most apples in one minute

@mijetman: I think he proved today that his membership had been revoked years ago if not at birth -_-;; Apparently, he swapped it with Shihan Kenneth.

@Masha2932: Not bad. I half expected him to slice off a finger every time he got all caught up resheathing his blade. Impressive but I want someone throwing fruit at him as he goes ninja crazy on em. It's nice to want things.
