Oh, god, here we go!
You knew The Daily Show splicers ‘n’ dicers were gonna pull this one outta their backsides. Still, in the absence of Obi Jon Kenobi, you knew it was bound to happen, and now we have it:
Star Wars: The Imperial Mash-Up!
I have to say, my Star Wars knowledge is shamefully lacking. I saw the original as a six-year-old kid, and spent two hours running around the Continental Theater – in front of the screen – like an obnoxious, pint-sized a-hole, with no respect, whatsoever, for the spiritual movement being born in those pews – I mean movie theater seats, and I’m fairly certain that my brother, who was saddled with my unruly presence, probably wanted to throttle my disrespectful ass that day.
Good times, good times…
Still, who knew that the avatar of Darth Vader could be so easily applied to one of our most evil, most pernicious overlords, Dick Cheney?!
Darth, if you will…
