May The Force Be With You

Fair warning: if you aren't a Stars Wars fan, parts of this post won't make much sense to you.

If you have any geek friends, they are probably besides themselves waiting for the premiere of the latest Star Wars movie - Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, the Hollywood elite got a special premiere for them on Monday, but the rest of us have to wait until tomorrow.
There are now about 1,000 people on the planet who have seen "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

The world premiere of the highly anticipated film took place on Monday afternoon in Los Angeles, where a half-mile section of Hollywood Boulevard was closed to traffic for the event.
No expense was spared.
A veritable army of security guards, publicists and event staffers. Quadruple the typical number of invited guests. A lavish after-party, replete with Stormtroopers and a roaming Chewbacca, stretching for four city blocks.

Even by the razzmatazz standards of the Walt Disney Company, the high-security, spare-no-expense world premiere for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” on Monday was something to behold.

But while we mere mortals may have to wait to see the movie, we can immediately get our hands on something Star Wars related that we can use right away.

Yes, those are Star Wars condoms. If you look closely, you can see the message from Darth Vader: "I will not be your father."

That's pretty funny. But even funnier is the message on the Yoda condoms.

Do or do not. There is no try.

Somehow I doubt if these products are officially licensed Disney merchandise. But they do reflect a Disney-like message of true friendship.

May the Force be with you.

Good one! And I'm afraid Disney is going to screw it up... sigh

Harry Potter was better!

Randy - ;-)

NFO - Mickey meets Darth. What could go wrong...?

Steve - my daughter would agree with you.

Think: THE DUKE!

The Sands of Iwo Jima was lots better than Harry Potter!

Funny you should mention him. Last night the wife and I watched The Horse Soldiers, one of my favorite John Wayne flicks.
