Points to Ponder
Why DO the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles need to wear eye masks? Are there really THAT many Ninja turtles that by wearing masks, we won’t know who they are? Or is it so we can tell them apart? Or they can tell each other apart? Because if that’s the case, they could put their names on their shells, kinda like the FBI puts ‘FBI’ on all their jackets. So it must be some sort of a disguise, but can you really disguise a teenage mutant ninja turtle? They’re gonna stick out no matter what kind of mask they wear. And I’m pretty sure this conversation isn’t going to happen:
Cop: Can you describe who it was that stopped the Evil Overlord Ninja from taking power?
Bystander: Omg, it was like a mutant ninja turtle, a teenage mutant ninja turtle! But I couldn’t see his face because he wore a mask!
Cop: (sigh) Chalk another one up to anonymous good samaritan. Nuts.
another point to ponder re: the teenage mutant ninja turtles… when we were kids, they were precisely that, teenage mutant ninja turtles. now, perhaps for the mostly illiterate up and coming generation, they are known at tmnt. that’s right. tmmmennnt. excellent.
