It's Star Wars Day at Garfield Ridge

A link to the trailer, in case you weren't watching The O.C. last night.

I can't even imagine such a thing, myself.

Dave's thoughts about the trailer-- first, what he thinks he's supposed to say, then what he really thinks.

And the main reason I'm linking this at all: Click on "the Star Wars kid" in the above post, download the first video -- an embarassing video of a, let us say, husky-sized boy doing "kewl" (but not very graceful) maneuvers with a long staff. Half the time he's hitting himself with the thing. The other half of the time he appears to be in danger of falling to the ground from either a lack of coordination or a brief epileptic seizure.

Once you've had enough pathos, start clicking on the rest of the videos -- especially the Star Wars edit and Matrix edit. People have taken this poor kid and made him a laughingstock.

I feel bad for the kid. But the videos are pretty funny. He's the new Tourist Guy.

Blood in the Water Update: Well, it turns out that the "Star Wars kid" isn't quite as new as I imagined... unless you consider something that became the rage in 2003 "new."

Check out the comments to see me get thoroughly pimp-slapped for my wretched ignorance.

My first thought was just to ban all the weisenheimers who thought they could come into my house, as the kids say, and have some japes at my expense, as your great-grandfather was too hip to even say, but then I realized:

Funny stuff. Funny stuff that I didn't have to write. Funny stuff that was created with no effort on my part whatsoever.

The best kind of funny stuff, I think. Sure, it's at my expense, but I'm a 6 on Sloth and only a 4 on Pride, so it's all good, baby.
