Perhaps it’s the inner geek in me, the eternally-nine-years-old Star Wars fan, but when I hear that you’ve decided to rebrand your restaurant as “The Hut,” my mind does not immediately think of this:



It thinks of this:

jabba the hut

Mmmmmm. Appetizing.

Now I will eat at your establishment.

Use the Force

For some reason this really, really amuses me:

A bunch of Scottish policeman took it upon themselves to list their religion as “Jedi” on the departments “voluntary diversity forms.”

Rather than react with some silly politically correct apology to all the wronged religions in the world, or some other such claptrap as one would expect from an American Police Chief in this situation, the Scots took a different approach.

From the Strathclyde Police Spokesman:

“The Force appears to be strong in Strathclyde Police with their Jedi police officers and staff. Far from living a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, some members of the noble Jedi order have now chosen Glasgow and its surrounding streets as their home.”

Bravo sir.
