Bollinger-san’s Army

Ninjas on campus! Bwog tipster Shannon Donnelly marvels:

As I was crossing College Walk at 6:30 this evening, I came across at least a hundred Martial Arts blackbelts. They were all lined up in their white uniforms and black belts, looking very fierce despite the persistant rain. Because I don’t have the Zen training necessary to stand in the rain without whining profusely, I didn’t bother to ask anyone what was going on, so I’ve decided to simply assume PrezBo has answered Columbia’s collective prayers and hired us a standing defense army of ninjas.

Alternatively, Bwog suggests that Columbia Security officers dress in black pyjamas and carry swords. Hi-YA!

Update: One more in the know has informed us that the ninjas were actually a bunch of Seido Karate students in their annual Saiten celebration. But close enough.

Overheard: “I think it’s the class of incoming freshmen.”

More photos after the jump.
