Good Job, Spike TV

Since my last post was such a hit, I thought I'd quietly just move on...

SpikeTV has acquired the rights to all 6 Star Wars films. They will begin airing the films on April 4. They have commenced a really cool ad campaign, which includes the following:



As you can see, it's a case of lightsabers at a bustop or busstop or bus-stop or whatever. Then it says, "Use only in case of Sith."

I'm sorry, but that's really cool - "use only in case of Sith." If you are not aware, Sith are the people who use the Dark Side of the Force - the evil Jedi, if you will. Instances include, most famously, Darth Vader, but also Emperor Palpatine, Darth Maul and Count Dooku.

Anyway, unfortunately I did not follow those directions about using only in case of Sith and started using lightsabers on random people and animals, including the late Brooke Astor, pictured below. Yes, she's already dead, but whatever.

Sorry, Brooke, but your money can't save you now
