DWI Yoda Gets
October 30, 2011
German police called to a traffic incident early Sunday were astonished to find themselves face-to-face with Jedi master Yoda from Star Wars, much the worse for wear after Halloween celebrations.
In the early hours of Sunday morning, a 42-year-old male driver, resplendent in his Yoda costume, had a minor collision with a pedestrian and sped off in his car, only to be collared by a police vehicle two minutes later.
Happy Sunday, everybody. If you’ve got any Halloween stories you’d lie to share with the world – drop ‘em in the comments. [pic]

Use the Fire Extinguisher, Luke!
In 2005 two die-hard Star Wars fans in England tried to stage (and film) their own lightsaber battle. The pair off wannabe Jedis, a 20-year-old male and his 17-year-old female friend, built their makeshift lightsabers out of two discarded fluorescent light tubes. Bad idea: they poured gasoline into the tubes and lit them on fire. Early on in the battle, their tubes collided and shattered—splattering them with glass and flames. Both were hospitalized with severe burns…just like Anakin Skywalker!
