Back when I was a kid, my favorite ninja turtle was Michaelanago because he got to fight with nunchucks. I made a pair by rolling up newspaper (the chuck) as tight as possible around the ends of a string I had woven from five pieces of yarn (the nun).... then I encircled the chuck with duct tape to keep the newspaper from unrolling during combat... a common problem young samari often faced before the invention of ducts and subsequently duct tape. I always liked the nunchucks because when you were playing ninja turtles you never had to run after your friends... you could throw the nunchucks and trip them pretty easily. Although I threw worse than a no-armed dwarf, it was still less humiliating than running.
