Samurai Masters There was an American who decided to take a trip to Japan for vacation. He was walking around taking in the sites when he came upon a Japanese man dressed in clothing he'd never seen before. He approached this man and asked him why he wore such unusual clothing. The Japanese guy replied "I'm #3 Samurai." The American said, "#3 Samurai, what's that mean?" So the #3 Samurai asked the American, "Would you like demonstration?." The American stepped back to watch the demonstration. The #3 Samurai opened a small pouch on his belt and out comes a fly. As the fly took off he drew his sword and made two swipes cutting the fly into half. The American was simply amazed by this and asked if there was a #2 Samurai since he was #3. The #3 Samurai replied "Yes, would you like to meet him and see demonstration?" The American was curious now and agreed to meet the #2 Samurai. The #3 Samurai takes him to see #2 Samurai and tells the Samurai the Amerian wanted a demonstration. The American steps back to watch. He, too, has a pouch on his belt. He opens it and out comes a fly, about that time he draws his sword and made two swipes cutting the fly in to 4 pieces. The American is totally bewildered and blown away by such skill and precision.... then he wonders if there is a #1 Samurai and what could he do to make him #1. So, he asks #2 Samurai if there is a #1 and could he give a demonstration. The Samurai agrees and takes him to meet the #1 Samurai for a demonstration. Just like the other Samurais he, too, has a pouch on his belt. He opens the pouch and releases a fly as the fly takes off #1 Samurai draws his sword and makes two swipes except this time the fly flew away. The American walks up to the #1 Samurai and says, "You must be having a bad day because you missed." The #1 Samurai said, "No miss, fly can no longer have family."
