A Columbia, MD, Safeway: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy.

I don't know why, but this guy's photos crack me up. I guess if you put a nerd dressed as an Imperial Stormtrooper anywhere other than at a big nerdcon, it's automatically funny. If I had any money, I'd sink it into making an amateur porno starring a guy in a Stormtrooper outfit, just to see if it's funny. Aw, who am I kidding? Of course it would be funny. I'd laugh at snuff films if the poor, crazy bastards indulged in some STAR WARS cosplay in them. [Insert joke about the FACES OF DEATH movie series being rereleased with new CGI effects, new scenes and a laugh track here.]

Admit it -- Nick Berg's murder wouldn't have been nearly as tragic if they had plonked a Darth Vader helmet/mask on his head before they cut it off. Just imagine a Humvee of Marines rolling down a Bagdad or Kabul side street when a dozen or so insurgents dressed as Imperial Stormtroopers leap out of their hiding places and bushwhack them; even the Marines would laugh at such a ridiculous sight, as they were riddled with bullets and rocket-propelled grenades. A few of Our Boys would be dead -- all George Lucas' fault.

Enough nightmare fuel to last a lifetime.

While I'm at it: I'm sure these folks are lovely people and fine parents, but if I ever need images for an ad campaign to encourage abortion and strict birth control, I know what photographer I'm contacting first.
