I'm a ninja. I laugh on the inside.

Your ninja comment reminded me of ask-a-ninja. So I went there and saw a ninja's advice in comma use.
and he answers lots of other questions here.

I'm sorry, I totally don't get it.
Is there something I should be noticing other than it being bottled water for emergencies?

Don't feel bad, it took me a few seconds to clue in on it. So used to seeing such stuff that it was sort of "ho-hum". No offense to the OP, I can certainly see how it is humorous, and there was a time when I would have guffawed at it most heartily.

I thought it was rather blah myself. I don't think I ever find ironic humor to be funny.. It is however, very ironic.. doh!!

No offense taken. It was a 'spur-of-the-moment' posting, but I have to admit it's bit lame...

Next time I'll take it as a Ninja -_^
