Kissimmee Ninja Winner of Free Tee in the NNSSSNN Challenge

10 pennies earned

Like a ninja on a mission, Kissimmeee Ninja snuck into the dojo last and assassinated all of his competition in their sleep. Showing wonderful ninjatic prowess makes him worth of a free t-shirt courtesy of the great ninja-friendly kids at teextile. Just send us a note and we'll tell you how to claim your prize.

Although this is just a tshirt, don't let that stop you from expressing your inner-ninja self, HalfCalorie. We found some instructions to help you, or anyone, look more ninja than this tshirt-his-head-wearing-ninja using only a tshirt.

If the rest of you are wondering how the others cracked our code --or at least were able to bluff their way past our ninja guards-- well, we recommend you just take a look at said code. Seriously.

Click view HTML, Page Source or something similar in your browser, and search for "ninja name" to see these hidden directions:

Here's how to create your ninja name:
1. Take the first initial of the username you use to comment at SoS and count three letters toward "Z". If you make it to "Z" just start at the beginning of the alphabet.
2. Create a first name that
a. Begins with this letter AND
b. Is the name of a city in Florida.
3. Add the much deserved "Ninja" to the end and kick back while the competition tries to figure out what the heck we're doing. Sound confusing? Just check out my comment and see if you can follow my lead.

Editor's note added 7:21PM 3/20: We're using this page to see if it's an actual CITY in Florida: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=List_of_cities_in_Florida&oldid=278230375
Some of you were darn close, but you had "town" and not "city" names in Florida. We wanted to let you in the competition, but that would have been less than ninja of us.

Congratulations to everyone who did figure it out and joined our Now Non-Secret Society of Silly-Named Ninjas (a.k.a. NNSSSNN -- NNSSSNN.com coming soon):

I suddenly feel very outside the community here. Can you suggest a similar tee blog for us regular people who don't know the first thing about HTML?

Victor said...

Well if there's one thing I've learned from this, it's that there are no cities in Florida that begin with Y, only towns and CDP's. So, I had to enter the contest as icecube.

Congratulations HalfCalorie!

Oh clever bastards. Who knew that ninjas were computer geeks, eh?

woo congrats halfcalorie!

fun contest!

Sorry if you felt out of the loop, ddwibb, but this is the first time we've had a contest where it helped to understand HTML a little, or at least know how to "look under the hood" of a website. You could have entered our recent Stop Shark Finning Contest, or the last teextile giveaway by answering a few questions, Comment Appreciation Month by leaving some comments, and the Beautiful/Decay SoS giveaway by taking a picture or just showing some love. What I mean to say is, there have been and will continue to be plenty of chances for you to win free tshirts without having to mess with HTML at all.

As a side note: you are truly worth of the ninja title, Longwood Ninja!

Congrats HalfCalorie! Thanks SOS for a really fun giveaway!

However, as you'll note, HC did not get me. Bwahaha!

Congrats HalfCal.

HalfCalorie said...

O.O Thanks everyone! This is awesome.

"Just send us a note and we'll tell you how to claim your prize."

Send you a...note?! What in the world does that mean. That's not in my ninja vocabulary! Through the contact page maybe?

Eden said...

Sorry. Meant to link to the contact page with that one. Your ninja skills are strong!
