ORLANDO, Fla. - A Florida Highway Patrol trooper was attacked in Orlando early Thursday by a man wearing a Darth Vader mask, authorities said.

Michael Cole, 28, of Orlando, was arrested on felony charges of resisting arrest and battery on an officer.

The trooper then told Cole to get up, but he attemtped to punch and kick the trooper, who deployed his Taser, according to the FHP. Officials said Cole's thick jacket prevented the Taser from working.....

Thick jacket? It was the force!

I find their lack of faith disturbing.

Just checking to be sure this wasn't you. Many imposters there are.

May the Force be with you.

"an intoxicated man wearing a Darth Vader mask"

What a shame, he was such a nice, clean cut Jedi, but then he started hitting the sauce. Too much Jack Daniels will lead you to the dark side every time...

Its a good thing the motorcyclist didn't wear one the other neoprene face masks to keep warm. Like this one;



The cop might have a hard time 'spainin' that he tazed an eagle.

Somewhere, in a glaxy far, far away......Luke Skywalker is going “Pepper spray? That’s all it took was pepper spray? I’m gonna kick Yoda right square in his green behind for making me live with snakes on that crappy planet when all I needed was pepper spray.”

Ryll or glitterism from Kessel may have done the trick.

Well, my knowledge of Star Wars is evidently lacking. I see that you have a Sheltie, and anyone who has a Sheltie is OK in my book. The only other Star Wars thing I know is

“WookieWookieWookie” - doesn’t mean anything.....I just like saying it.

This would make for a great episode on the next “Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager.” (Chad is the brother of Darth.)

I'm far from an authority on it, but I probably know more than is healthy.

I knew I was "normal" when I went to see The Phantom Menace years ago. A couple of hard-core scifi guys were sitting behind me, mocking parts of the movie because "that could never happen."

NONE OF IT COULD. IT'S A FREAKING MOVIE!!!

Whenever I feel like an oddball, I remember them.
