Caption This Shit!


From just a few moments ago at the New York Stock Exchange -- Darth Vader and the Imperial Stormtroopers, ahem, clone troopers ring the opening bell.

The first things that come to mind are, "After successfully testing the Death Star on Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, Goldman Sachs assumes complete control of the galaxy," "Lloyd Blankfein finally dispenses with the costume," and "It's tuesday."

In all honesty, people on Wall Street running into Darth Vader must be like in American Psycho where everybody confuses Patrick Bateman with Paul Allen. They just look at Vader and say, "Oh, good morning, Lloyd."

Oh, too much fun...

Lloyd: "Don't try to sell us on your sorcerer ways, Lord Vader: your sad devotion to that ancient religion of robber baron capitalism hasn't given you clairvoyance enough to find new tax loopholes..."

*Force Choke*

Vader: "I find your lack of faith disturbing."

For the sake of accuracy, I think it should be pointed out that those are clone troopers and not storm troopers...

Just doing my duty as a supreme dork.
