Re: Father’s Day

Kids, if you’re not sure what to get dad for father’s day, check this shit out:


Nothing says “thanks for knocking up mom” or “thanks for picking me out at the adoption store” like effigies of an incestuous, limb severing, Alderaan explodin’ family.

And now, your moment of Star Wars zen:

Via And I Still Persist
Thanks to Schmader for the tip.

Thank you for giving geeks of all stripes a reason to read the Slog with your Star Wars posts. They beat the sludge coming from the "news" dept hands down.

Okay, so why didn't the cop who broke the light saber lose his fingers when he grabbed the business end?

Or is that TOO geeky a question?

Anyone know what the fourth cop in the first sequence says after they've taken Vader away?

And anyway, what a psychologically weird gift to give a father, given that Star Wars is partially about the estrangement of sons and fathers, and The Machine's corruption the soul.
"Here, Dad! You may be a part of the Dark Side and abandoned your own son and daughter years ago, and tried to kill them (and the universe)... But I luvs ya anyway! Happy Darth Vader's Day!"
