Sadly, Ukraine Rules out Darth Vader's Presidential Bid
What does a Sith Lord have to do to get elected around here?
Ukrainian authorities have rejected a bid from a man calling himself Darth Vader, who wants to run in the presidential elections.Thanks to LarrO
The man, who appears in the costume of the fictional character from the Star Wars films and is often accompanied by people dressed in other Star Wars outfits, was nominated for the presidency by the Internet Party of Ukraine. Earlier he told the party's congress that he wanted to turn Ukraine into "a galactic empire".
Oh, I'll be out of town until next Wednesday. Hopefully Howie will be back soon, but he might just be enjoying the sponge baths a little too much.
