Marketing Conspiracy Theory

*Disclaimer* - This post is of absolutely no spiritual import.

I've seen a ton of infomercials recently that are pushing the new mini-blender called the Ninja.

I immediately loved the name, it actually kind of made me want one, even though we would never use it.

As I thought about it, I realized that it's biggest competitor is the Magic Bullet. 

In case you are in the dark, one of the greatest questions among my generation is this:

who would win in a fight, a pirate or a ninja? 

Don't believe me, google pirate vs. ninja.  There's even games like Pirate vs. Ninja dodgeball for the Xbox 360.  The question is for real. 

I wonder if it's just a coincidence that the inventors of the Ninja named it the ninja.  It could be a conspiracy. 

I wonder if the inventors of the Ninja named it as such to show once and for all that a Ninja would dominate a Pirate.  Afterall, a pirate uses bullets and the Magic Bullet once ruled the all important mini-blender market. 

Maybe the inventors of the Ninja mini-blender are a secret society of Ninjas who are convinced that the question of the pirate vs. ninja has far more implications than just fantastical curiosity?

Could it be that the question of our generation will come down to the sales of mini-blenders?

No question about it, ninja beats pirate 100 out of 100 times...even in the mini-blender category!

The Ninja mini blender box does say "Crush, Blend, Chop." The Magic Bullet box,no such awesomeness.
