    let's settle it now! Choose wisely for fate holds you by the naughty parts and dangles you like a cat toy.

    10 basses. Why? Because Ninjas don't, have not, and will not exist. They are an urban legend, perpetuated by those that don't know better, like spoons, the Ford Motor Company, and President.

    Have you ever SEEN a ninja? Didn't think so. Sure, you've read about them and seen them on TV, but you've also seen the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula the vampire, Frankenstien, and the President. All works of fiction.

    I mean, look around you, can you show me a Ford? No? Didn't think so. Same with a spoon. Sure, you might THINK you've seen, or maybe even owned a spoon, but it's just not true. Same with Ninjas.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, man.

  3. Being a certified Ninja myself, I'd have to agree with Brendan. Ninja's don't exist.

    I'd take 10 basses:

    -Essex Fretless P
    -Warwick Fortress One
    -G&L L-1000
    -Peavey Cirrus (bubinga)
    -Danelectro DC bass
    -Fender American Fretless J w/ Flatwounds
    -Custom Sadowsky w/ Double P pups.
    -Schecter Hellcat
    -Modulus Vintage J
    -Ibanez ATK

    Ahh, that felt good. Excuse me while I go make some tomato soup.

    Have you tried tomato soup with cilantro, lime, and hot sauce? You need a Mexican style hot sauce like cholula for it to be really good.

    I picked the basses because the ninjas may or may not be at my disposal. They might freak out and kill me. If the ninjas did my bidding, I'd be all about the ninjas. But yeah... basses.

    It's gotta be the basses. What good are the others?

    I've no idea what ten basses though.
  12. A Donkey and a keg? How can y ou *not* choose that?

    And after a little coaxing, a drunk donkey can be achieved. If life gets any better then that, then call me Sally

    The heck with all that stuff. I want talent.

  15. I've tried it with hot sauce, no cilantro or lime though. I love spicy food. Give me some Lamb Vindaloo and I'm in heaven. Mmmmmmmm

    Then threw it into the lake.

    BTW: I'd like some of that talent if people are passing it out.
