Steve Jobs: Ninja In Disguise? (SPOILER: No)

September 14, 2010


Seen here about to get all ninja turtle on your ass, Steve Jobs was allegedly stopped from boarding his private plane from Japan recently on account he was smuggling ninja stars. And you know what? I believe it. He may look like a toothpick but I bet that dude gets down with a katana.

If you missed the original story, Jobs was reportedly busted for trying to sneak ninja throwing stars onto his plane in Japan. After officials said he couldn't bring the stars on his plane, he said he would never come back to Japan.

Despite reports to the contrary, Apple says Steve Jobs did not vow to never return to Japan, after airport officials prevented him from bringing his ninja throwing stars on his private plane.

Apple's statement on the matter, via All Things D, "Steve did visit Japan this summer for a vacation in Kyoto, but the incidents described at the airport are pure fiction. Steve had a great time and hopes to visit Japan again soon."

Great, NOW who am I supposed to believe? "Don't worry about them, just believe in yourself, GW." I'm trying but I feel like such a loser!

Thanks to Ryan, REFUKIn and Spoon, who are smart enough to know you have to check all your ninja weaponry. Yes, even the smoke bombs.
