Our secret ingredient is EVIL…

July 26, 2010


Blog Guy, I read a couple of days ago some guy dressed as Darth Vader held up a bank. That made me realize, I’ve lost track of the career of the real Vader fellow, the one who was in those George Lucas movies.

You mean “Vaders of the Lost Arc,” right?

No, you hopeless dimwit. DARTH Vader, from the “Star Wars” films.

Oh, him. Sure. He’s moved on into decorating, fashion design and home entertaining.

BRITAIN/ Are we talking about the same dude? Strange face, talks kind of like James Earl Jones?

That’s him. On the right are some of his cool helmet designs now that he’s branched out from basic black.

And above, you can see him with his award-winning dish on that popular new television series, “Cooking with Evil.” He beat Hannibal Lecter, Freddy Krueger and Cruella De Vil.

Of course, his main job these days is supervising his growing nationwide chain of exotic groceries for serious foodies.

Wait. Don’t tell me HE owns Trader Vader’s! I never made the connection!

That’s him. And don’t forget his popular home furnishings magazine.

Not “Hearth & Darth!” I subscribe to that!

Hmm, a bunch of Darth Vaders in Edinburgh, standing around sipping tea.
Because as we all know, no matter how evil you are, EVERYTHING stops for tea.
