“These guys say 'Ni' a lot.”
“I used to run with this crowd.”
“You must bring us... a shrubbery!”
“You must cut down this tree with... a herring!”
The Knights of Ni were formed in 927. They are on a quest to find The Great and Almighty Shrubbery, and consider this journey the meaning of their lives. Some experts say that The Great and Almighty Shrubbery is, in fact, the same burning bush that Moses talked to in the Bible.
Currently, the group is on the verge of having a schism because some of the members believe the meaning of life is in fact 42, and still others believe it to be The Great and Almighty Breakfast Cereal of Holy Powers Beyond Our Mortal and Completely Naive Understanding. The Knights who say Ni have made many advancements to agriculture such as the method of chopping down trees with herrings. They have also found success in other areas, and it was they who created the first ever Internet Banking system. They are often confused with the Knights of Negro, but in fact they are bitter enemies. Both groups, however, share the same weakness in the form of a word that they must never hear, though what this word may be remains undiscovered. All members of the Knights who say Ni enjoy reading Nietzsche.
After discovering the powerful uses of the word "Ni," the Knights who say Ni have used the sacred word to make people bring them shrubberies, in hopes that someone will happen to purchase the Great and Almighty Shrubbery for them without realizing the true worth of the shrubberies. The word "Ni," when repeated ten times in a row, makes the listener a splode, and therefore people are very quick to bring the Knights who say Ni their shrubberies.
The Knights who say Ni were featured in one of Monty Python's documentaries, which greatly increased their fame. They managed to set up a website in between interviews, and they now receive PayPal donations from their fans that further their quest for The Great and Almighty Shrubbery.
Shrubberies are of great importance to the Knights who say Ni and they constantly seek the perfect bush to gaze at. They have not yet found this holy relic, but they have come close. The most valued shrubbery to the Knights appeared in the hit 2004 musical Harold and Kumar Go To Wh__e Castle. Making a brief cameo appearance togehter with workaholic Samuel L. Jackson when urinated upon by actor Kal Penn and a random bystander, the plant is of great value to the Knights. Because the Knights are a largely closed society, historian Oscar Wilde could not contact a representative for comment on exactly why this shrubbery is of such great value. There has been speculated, however, that the Knights respect this shrubbery as it is a representation of the most intimate contact they have ever witnessed in which a man came in contact with a bush. "Life as a man of honor is immensely difficult, and they don't get out much," commented actor Morgan Freeman. "Just because I take a strong moral stance against sex doesn't mean they should have to, poor fools." A less known shrubbery was built by the Discalced Carmel__es in S. XV B.C. to keep the Chinese inside of China, but was soon replaced by the Great Wall of China, built by the Chinese to stop the Carmelites from sexually assaulting their vegetables. Most historians agree that the shrubbery was probably much nicer.
