I thought this was a very funny little news item:

Jedi miss chance to fulfill destiny when attacked by Vader

The Associated Press is reporting that in Wales "A man who dressed up as
Darth Vader, wearing a garbage bag for a cape, and assaulted the founders of
a group calling itself the Jedi church was given a suspended sentence
Tuesday." As far as I'm concerned, this is what they call a victimless
If you really and truly claim to be a Jedi master, you have to expect to
come under attack by dark Sith Lords. It comes with the territory (and
lightsaber). If I walked around telling everyone I was Han Solo, I would be
well aware that some day, Jabba the Hutt (or an emissary acting on his
behalf) might come looking for payment for that shipment of spice I had to
dump. And if he did? I wouldn't cry about it. I'd stand up and say "Jabba! I
was just on my way to see you, when I got a little sidetracked."
I mean, you didn't hear Obi-Wan complaining when he fought Vader on the
Death Star did you? No, Obi-Wan took it like a real Jedi and fulfilled his
destiny and got a sweet blue ghost, not like these two sissies from England
who apparently went crying to the police when their destiny came calling.
Instead of going to the police, you'd think they could have called upon some
of the other 390,000 other Jedi in England for some backup. But that's why
Obi-Wan was a true Jedi master and these guys clearly are not. Maybe they
could start up a church of Jar Jar Binks instead. I can see it now, "The
Church of the Worthless Sidekick". Though come to think of it, they might
get attacked even MORE often then.

This is just too funny. I agree that those two men should have taken the
attack like "real Jedi" and not gone whining and crying to the police. But
then perhaps the reason why the Sith periodically crush the Jedi and take
over the galaxy is because of too many wimpy Jedi like this. lol My only
real concern would be large groups of Sith and Jedi wannabes getting into
massive soccer hooligan-like light saber fights in the streets and parks.
But then again, that would be really cool to watch!
