  1. Pirates! Senegals ftw. I say that due to eryndor/dagorhir, google em for the sites. Also – I look sexy as a pirate, true fact.

  2. Pirates can be Sexy? lol

  3. Well, I know I can. Ladies love pirates. :O

  4. I really can’t think of anything funny to say, so I’ll rather say something serious. Here’s my comparison of the two:

    Pirates are drunks that steal from ships that doesn’t fight back. They also tend to have the Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome due to alcohol abuse, which in turn is because of poor food rations. In other words, they suck.

    Ninjas are people skilled in the art of stealth. They use shoes with more grip for that occasional wallrunning. Oh, and they know ninjutsu. In other words, they rule.

    So although pirates are sexy to some, a ninja would definitely win. I am getting mighty tired of this meme, but I’ve never played this game and wouldn’t mind getting it for free 🙂

  5. Ninja. Pirates are loud, drunk and on and on. They’re not even smart enough to spend their treasure instead of burying it for 50 years.

  6. I definitely think a pirate would win a fight because of their trickery and piracy

  7. Just give Jack Sparrow a blunderbuss and you’ve got the answer

  8. does the pirate even have a chance, that ninja would definitely win

  9. NINJA FTW!!!

  10. Pirates would win ship to ship.

    Ninjas would sneak on board when docked to win.

    In a strait on fight Pirates have luck and companions while ninjas tend to be alone with their skill.

    The ninja befriends the pirate so that he can kill him after he’s drunk but the ninja has less tolerance for alcohol and gets drunk first.

    Pirates and Ninjas have had equally good and bad games. So in the end I would have to say “Far Eastern Kugn Fu Pirates FTW!”

  11. All I have to say on the ninja supporters… a gun will kill a ninja very easily. :O

  12. Ninjas of course.

  13. Ninja hands down, a drunk pirate with a peg leg, eye patch and a parrot nibbling on his ear is gonna have a hard time killing a ninja even with a gun. But if were a drink off, Pirate FTW.

  14. Ninja please.
    Pirates all the way.

  15. Pirates are dejected and retarded ninjas at sea
    therefore both pirates and ninjas are ninjas
    hence ninjas win 🙂

  16. Pirates, easily.

  17. Go Ninja. Go Ninja Go!

  18. Pirates
