Because I'll continue getting this tip for days to come if I don't post it, here it is -- a parody of the New York Times article about President Obama announcing that terrorist Osama Bin Laden was killed, except with Darth Vader announcing the death of Obi-Wan Kenobi instead. One tipster (Jim) even went as far as to included this note, "Post it up pretty boy. Or else i'll come to your house and start krumping in your living room." Jim clearly appreciating my delicate facial features aside, the last thing I need is a krump-fest in my living room while I'm trying to write. An excerpt:
In a late-night appearance in the East Room of the Imperial Palace, Lord Vader declared that "justice has been done" as he disclosed that agents of the Imperial Army and stormtroopers of the 501st Legion had finally cornered Kenobi, one of the leaders of the Jedi rebellion, who had eluded the Empire for nearly two decades. Imperial officials said Kenobi resisted and was cut down by Lord Vader's own lightsaber. He was later dumped out of an airlock.
You can hit the link to read the much-more in depth article, which, admittedly, was fairly humorous and very well written. Not unlike Geekologie. "Pfft -- in your dreams you grammarless hack!" Again with the trying to hurt feelings -- what happened to you when you were growing up to make you like this? "I banged your sister!" HA -- that would explain it (sorry, Stacy).

Thanks to The Honorable Grant Lemasters, sammy, Erin, Plarix, Stormtroopah, Nick, TK 745 and Jim, who agree MOST news is just a parody of what actually happened. Hey I'm with you.
