I love me some Wookies and Ewoks and rock. Watch the whole thing for the Jawa drum line at the end. Nice. Via Geeks Are Sexy (and they are, I might add. )
Some of their April Fools’ products have been so incredible that they’ve actually gone on to become real products…a la the taun taun sleeping bag.
WIRED is calling for this lightsaber popsicle tray to become a real product too…and I’m glad to throw my lot in with them.
This fake product consists of four Lightsaber hilts which — when frozen in juice — become four short-bladed Lightsabers. Two hilts are Luke’s, two Darth Vader’s. There is even an imaginary LED inside each handle which beams its light into the popsicle and makes it glow.
Or will it? The curious thing about ThinkGeek’s April Fool gags is that they create such a demand that the company has to go ahead and make them anyway, making them less pranks and more a kind of clever market research. Fingers crossed that ThinkGeek can get these things licensed and ready in time for Summer, and keeps the price to the currently hypothetical $35.
I’d pay $35 for that awesomeness. Would you?

After watching those videos, one thing appears to be clear….bears must have some sort of molecular anomaly hidden within their DNA that renders them impervious to the business end of lightsabers. Perhaps an abnormally high midi-chlorian count?
+10 geek points if you can cite the origin of the play on words I used the title of this post to caption this pic with.

This is a video of a bear at the Hiroshima Zoo named Cloud. Cloud is trying out for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and wants to work the bō staff like Donatello. He’s good too. The Youtube user that shot video claims it has NOT been sped up or altered in away way.
Caveman Circus is back with Episode II of “Star Wars in Odd Places”. Here are 2 of my favorite pictures from this episode:
I have to wonder if this is somewhat how I came across during my brief gangsta rap phase in high school.
Seriously, Bert and Ernie are hardcore t-h-u-g fo life…
Thanks to my bud Derek Markham for this
Awesomeness. Here’s what Geeks are Sexy says:
A couple using the Death Star trench run scene from Episode IV to announce that they’ve got twins on the way? Now that’s what I call awesome.
