MAY THE FORCE BE WITH THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD! K-CHUNK!

It's odd: if a dog dresses up like Darth Vader for a party he'll make lots of friends, but if a person does...

A 27 year-old Welsh man was ordered to pay a $200 fine for attacking the founding members of the Church of Jedism with a metal crutch while dressed in a makeshift Darth Vader costume using a garbage bag as a cape and after drinking the majority of a 2 ½ gallon box of wine. I’m guessing he probably used the empty of the box of wine as a helmet, at least I would.

The members of the church apparently caught the entire attack on video, as they were taping their holy light saber battle. That’s the beauty of nerds; they do well over half the job of mocking themselves for you, not just by squealing like a possum in heat, but they also take care of logistical stuff too.

The moral of this story is: it’s okay to beat up nerds, if it’s funny, and it almost always is.

UPDATE! Here’s the video! Unfortunately, he’s not wearing the box of wine as a helmet.
