Jedis hate our way of life. (SLYT) (and yes, Clerks did kinda get there first.)

A laudable attempt at provoking cognitive dissonance.

Okay, so my friend was camping during 9/11 and had only a radio connecting him to the world. Seeing no reason to cut his camping trip short (everyone he knew lived far, far away from the area and no one worked near there) he kept on camping with his partner. His partner made the observation "So wait, a small band of rebels take down the symbol of the Empire's awesome power by being sneaky and then go hide in a bunch of caves?" There was much discussion of the Clerk's scene. Anyway, so he packs up camp and gets on the train. What is the first thing, the FIRST thing he sees when he's back in New York?

Jedi also hate Tesco, which lead to my favourtite PR statement of recent months:

Tesco said: "He hasn't been banned. Jedis are very welcome to shop in our stores although we would ask them to remove their hoods.

"Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Luke Skywalker all appeared hoodless without ever going over to the Dark Side and we are only aware of the Emperor as one who never removed his hood.

"If Jedi walk around our stores with their hoods on, they'll miss lots of special offers."

Okay, maybe College Humor isn't so bad after all.

I saw this a couple weeks ago and thought it hilarious. It was a little close to the date though and wanted to be sensitive. Thanks for posting, enjoyed it again!

Its like the Jedi Highlander, the two links can fight it out with light sabers and determine who is the single link. There can be only one!

I love how they're drinking that ambiguous blue goop. That always fascinated me when I was younger. What is that shit supposed to be? Any extended universe fans care to enlighten me?

It's probably Blue Milk.

Thanks C^3. Apparently, there's even a hilarious, adorable infomercial based on Blue Milk. And I never underestimated Star Wars fans again.

I can enjoy Blue Wonder Power Milk.

Surprisingly... it's nicely observed. Right beats and length. Good performances. I give it the seal of favorite approval.

That one made me chuckle. Especially the "truther" trooper. That was too good.

hahaha. Just watching them holding that blue milk, or whatever, holding it up, but not able to drink, is hilarious.
