“Alright. Up next, we have the deadly and mysterious Shino Kami. Please step forward into the light.”

“Alright, Mr. Kami. Do you understand what you are auditioning for today?”


“And did you read and understand the assassin employment agreement and waiver?”


“Okay then. Why don’t you tell us a little about yourself.”

“Shino Kami comes from plains of Iga. Shino Kami trains for many years as ninja in strictest tradition. When Shino Kami came of age, he killed master. Now Shino Kami has become greatest ninja assassin in all Japan. Strong men tremble when they see Shino Kami’s victims.”

“That sounds very interesting, Mr. Kami. And what is your weapon of choice?”

“Shino Kami needs no weapon.”

“Ah, a hand-to-hand specialist. So what is your angle then?”

“Shino Kami does not understand.”

“You see, Mr. Kami, we prefer to employ individuals who stand out amongst their colleagues. Who go above and beyond.”

“What my associate means is, how do people recognize your… handiwork?”

“Just before Shino Kami kills, Shino Kami whispers ‘You are victim of Shino Kami. You are dead now.’ Then Shino Kami kills them.”

“I think you misunderstand my question. I’m referring to your calling card. The thing that makes you unique.”

“Yes, Mr. Kami. How is it that survivors know it was you who killed a particular person?”

“Shino Kami also strong Origami Master.”

“Ah, now we’re getting somewhere. I take it you leave an elegant yet eerie paper crane near the body?”


“Oh. Umm… perhaps you leave an Origami piece on or perhaps inside the mouths of your victims?”

“No. Victim is Origami. Shino Kami folds them many times. Shino Kami is strong Origami Master. Here is picture.”

“Wow. That’s… wow.”

“Well I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’d say we’ve found our new intern.”

“I concur. Mr. Kami— welcome to Comcast.”
