I’ve seen a few lately that would qualify as Sumo wrestlers, But warriors? I don’t know.

My old hag boss at facilities at a university in the south would have all the qualifications. Tall, obese, bad teeth, bad attitude, control freak, and ugly.

Women aren’t allowed to touch a sumo ring. If they touch it, you have to destroy and reform it because the de-sanctify it.

I think ‘Ninja’ might be different from ‘Sumo’.

Just guessing, of course.

Yes, and you would rather look at sumo wrestlers?

Just checking...

I thought I had made it clear that I’d rather shoot Sumo wrestlers. Caliber of choice is a .45-70 with a 500 - 600 grain hard cast lead bullet back up by a moderate dose of, maybe, 3031.

Now as to Ninja’s, as represented in your earlier post, I’d rather file a ‘protected species’ claim on them.

A fella’s got to be flexible in the approach.

She is a gymnast who trains full time with her boyfriend who is also an ANW heavyweight. Three women have made it to the top of the warped wall this year for the first time. Here is a video of Kacy's qualifying run.

She wins the right to try the first of 4 stages of Mt. Midoriyama, the ultimate obstacle course. The prize for completing all four stages without error is a paltry $250,000 and bragging rights. Only 3 Japanese men have achieved this.

The blimp on the left looks a lot like the ex IT supervisor I had to deal with. Her personality was 3X as bad her looks. But that shift didn’t happen until a few weeks after I started.
