Ninjas. Everybodies favorite martial artist assassins.

Silent, invisible, dexterous and deadly. But nowadays alas, many Ninjas are finding themselves on the dole-queues with nothing to do. Ruthless daimyo's simply don't call for the services of your average ninja any more, and the more modern, urban ninjas are equally under-employed.

How about utilising this surplus of talent to assist the inebriated in bars, whilst creaming off a tidy profit? A nudge of an elbow just before it slips off the bar to preserve the upright stance and dignity of the nudgee, a gentle guiding arm to stop a pint being spilled needlessly, or a carefully honed set of manoeuvres to steer someone safely to the gents (or the ladies) without getting in anyone else’s way.

In short, how about a chain of bars, in which are employed an army of ninjas, all of whom are tasked to invisibly correct the collapsing motor functions of the horribly drunk.

       A more flexible arrangement would be for the non- (or not-yet-) horribly drunk. How about an army of freelance ninjas, who you could call like a taxi? They'd meet you at a bar, and upon request, could silently, efficiently, and swiftly get you a drink from the overworked bartender. Spend your time where it's best used: drinking and carousing, not waiting for a refill! (Croissant)

       I'll vote for this as long as you use a monk for the bartender.

       Do the ninjas join in if a fight breaks out?

       I must vote for this on principle. Ninjas and Inebriation.   

       Ah, life.

       Just a short autobiographical note: After 4+ years of working all over the place, I have finally returned to the very same office I was working* in when I first looked on the HB - an office from whence I may well have posted this idea. And they *still* haven't blocked the 'bakery - Hoorah!   

       One Olympiad of bakery.   

       P.S. It all feels a bit strange.   

       * browsing the internet.

These ninjas would be trained in the use of reproduction horse brasses, I assume?
