I was just reading something about Samurai on the internet. I know very little about them, so I decided to try to find something funny to say. Here it is.
The Samurai had a long history, some great, some not-so-great. 1873 was probably the worst year. That was the year that Samurai could no longer wear their Katana (sword) in public. It was also the same year that Samurai lost the legal ability to execute any commoners that disrespected them. Bummer. I bet they took a lot more crap in 1873 than they did in 1872.
When I am not carving pumpkins, I run a bulletproof vest company. BulletSafe Bulletproof Vests are the value leader in body armor. We are very popular with people like armored car operators and ATM repairmen.
