Samurai sword?? What is this, feudal Japan???

He must have missed the debate where Obama bragged about technological advances in weaponry today.

What’s up with all the samurai sword stuff that we’ve been seeing in the news lately? Isn’t a samurai sword an “assault weapon”?

When SNL was funny.
It took me awhile to realize it was not a church with chickens (boy, that made no sense) it was a joint named Church's Chicken (which then made way more sense).

I am sure he was stylish as he did something so stupid. I do not recall any martial arts films where a fast food place was robbed. lol

I know there seem to be a number of sword incidents.
I know the Boardwalk & Park Place game store in the Mall sells some pretty big swords. I always thought it would be cool to have some medieval sword on the wall. You never know when might come in handy lol

Church’s Chicken is a Fried chicken place. I didn’t know they have them in MO, I’ve only seen them in South Carolina. They make great biscuits.

But it was very well done, IMO.

I would not really suggest it for a first K-drama though it would be near the top. Yeah, the plot is kind of weird.

She was also in “Damo” as a swordswoman and it looked like they were doing scenes for it when she played a stuntwoman in ‘Secret Garden’ (always cool when they do nods to other shows like that) .. near the end of the series she gets a script for a movie... it was “Sector 7”, a movie she really made, heh.

When I was a kid the library in DeFuniak Springs had a huge collection of armor and weapons from Scotland.

I can recall thinking they must have been incredibly strong as the swords were huge.

Of course I now realize they were Claymores. Still I wonder just how difficult it must have been wielding one of those even with two hands.

Wasn't that the episode with Buck Henry, and Belushi accidentally hit Henry in the head with his sword, giving him a pretty nasty cut on his fore-head? As I recall, the next sketch with Buck had him wearing a band-aid on his forehead, and by the end of the show, the entire cast was wearing band-aids on their foreheads.

I guess that explains the sword... granted her character did just hop (forward flip) off a motorcycle. heh, although not very realistically for an actress who likes (liked?) doing her own stunts.

Having seen quite a bit of genuine armor displays it’s amazing, but when you think about it, life in general was much more physically demanding than today.

My weapon of choice when I rob the Church’s chicken is a either a Ninja star or nunchucks.

Also you can turn off and on the viewer comments on the screen, sometimes they are hilarious though

Another show, that is still ongoing that involves a divorcing couple getting their bodies switched doesn’t have much drama, just more comedy. They switch early on and stay that way (so far) instead of only a couple of times.

Pure comedy though

It's -very- cool to have a (some) medieval sword(s) on the wall. :-)

I would caution anyone though that the stuff in mall stores is usually of fairly poor quality. OK as a wall hanger, but will likely come apart if actually swung at something.
