the Darth Vader burger

Ironically, after publishing this week’s caption contest featuring Darth Vader and Ronald McDonald, I happened across an image of a Darth Vader burger.  Apparently some restaurant in France has created a Darth Vader burger which has a black bun.  It definitely looks evil!  (I’m not sure what evil tastes like, and I don’t really want to find out.)

They also created a Jedi Burger, which looks lame.  Are those marshmallows?  And what’s that sauce?  I may not want to know…

The restaurant says the black bun is just from a dye, that it should taste the same.  It actually looks kinda cool, though it doesn’t look edible.  Still, I’d try it, given the opportunity.

For those of you curious why this is happening now, it’s to promote the re-release of The Phantom Menace — this time in 3D.  And if you noticed the spelling of Vador, apparently that’s how it’s spelled in France.  I don’t know why it would change, but whatever.

caption contest, Darth Vader and Ronald McDonald

This week our caption contest features two famous celebrities — Darth Vader and Ronald McDonald.  Why are they together?  That’s a good question.  Hopefully you can think up some good answers.  🙂  Of course, even if you don’t contribute a funny answer, you can read what others have come up with.

caption contest, Darth Vader on a swingset

We missed last week’s caption contest for various reasons, so perhaps this week’s should be double the awesome?  Well, I don’t know about that, but how about one with double the Darth Vaders?  It’ll have to do.  There’s some potential with this one, for both puns and Star Wars references, as well as original humor.  So put your thinking cap on (or take it off if that’s how your randomness flows better), and come up with something funny to explain this picture.

funny costumes, pt 2

Here’s some more pictures of costumes for Halloween, parties, conventions, etc.  The first funny costumes post featured superhero costumes, so this one will be more random.   Some are from popular franchises like Star Wars and Halo, and there are some creative and well-done ones in here, too.  Feel free to comment on any of them, if you have something funny to add.

Once again this is getting long, so I’ll put the rest in another post.   Here’s a link to search for the other funny costumes posts.
