This of course prompted the following between Vicki and I:
Me: Get a load of this -- ninjas have to check their nunchakus.We're not even boarding until tomorrow afternoon, and I'm already hoping for more in-flight entertainment than is reasonable.
Me: You know, nunchucks.
Vicki: I know. Still. Seems kind of unfair.
Me: Well, even without his nunchakus or throwing stars, the ninja is still, y'know, a ninja. I think he could take the air marshal.
