Is there anything about the idea of female ninja assassins that doesn't make you think "heck yes?" Now, what if they hailed from, say, Iran?
I ran across this link on Facebook this morning during my daily time-wasting extremely important news scroll and just had to check it out. We all know that the concept of Iran can be a little, um, scary. With their highly unpredictable regime and penchant for the weird, I personally file them squarely under "places I'm afraid my spouse will someday be forced to deploy."
(Don't lie: you were thinking it, too).
Check out the video:
Does the existence of female Iranian ninja assassins make me any less nervous? Probably not. But it does up their "awesome" level in my mind. After all, I am a self-admitted "Alias" addict. Why doesn't the US have this?
My overactive imagination envisions me and a handfull of my MilSpouse friends leading secret ninja-assassin lives where we say we're headed to an FRG meeting, but really we put on our ninja outfits and take down the bad guys. Who needs SEAL Team 6 when you have our lethal band of black clothed MilSpouse ninja chicks?
(There's a slight possibility that I spend way too much time watching girl-power shows when my husband isn't around).
Incidentally, our friends over at Military.com's female servicemember blog agree -- girl power! (Sorry, male spouses).
