I've had it with these snakes.

heroes in a half-shell

Who came up with the idea of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...I would really like to know. I mean, what kind of person sits at his desk and thinks, "gee, I think we should make some mutant super heroes, you know, teenage to reach the kids...and ninja..yah..nijas are sweet...and TURTLES! Let's make 'em turtles!" who comes up with that? Don't get me wrong, I am a die hard fan--but it just dawned on me what a silly idea that is. I mean, when I think of ninjas, a turtle is probably the last animal I think of. Not only are they super slow, but they are NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT SCARY. I mean, in the right lighting, turles can be kinda cute--NOT something I want to protect me from evildoers. Where are the teenage muntant ninja tigers, or teenage muntant ninja bears? It's like saying that the teenage mutant ninja sea monkies will help me sleep safely at night.
