It’s a beautiful thing….

 

We all know that George Lucas is perfectly willing to pimp out Star Wars to all and sundry, but I’m beginning to think he’s gone too far.

To ‘celebrate’ the release of The Phantom Menace’ in 3D (why? I have no idea), he’s allowed France’s / Benelux’ fast food chain Quick to create and market a Jedi Burger and a Dark Vador Burger.

No, you read that right, DARK VADOR!

What do these Force injected nummies look like?

Oh God! Make it stop!Do not adjust your monitors, you’re seeing it right. That’s a pitch black burger bun.  Nothing screams ‘Delicious’ like a bun that’s indistinguishable from a charcoal briquet.

And guess what? There’s also the Dark Burger just in case the Dark Vador is too emo for you.

No, please stop!

Dear Gods, please make it stop! Next thing you know, Quick will announce that’s the patties are made with bantha fodder.

Whatever happened to collectible cups?

Wonder if Kirk Cameron would like to share a slice.

Harry Potter's ButterbeerI snagged this recipe from Starline Hodge’s webcomic site, Candi – A College Story.

You should definitely check the strip out. It’s a lot of fun, has some great characters, and depicts parts of my university career with aching clarity, episodes that I think are universal to anyone who’s pursued higher learning at any institution.

Most of which I think a lot of us would would much rather forget.

*SHUDDER*

At any rate, thanks Starline!

BUTTERBEER

Ingredients:

1 cup (8 oz) club soda or cream soda

½ cup (4 oz) butterscotch syrup (ice cream topping)

½ tablespoon butter

Directions:

Step 1: Measure butterscotch and butter into a 2 cup (16 oz) glass. Microwave on high for 1 to 1½ minutes, or until syrup is bubbly and butter is completely incorporated.

Step 2: Stir and cool for 30 seconds, then slowly mix in club soda. Mixture will fizz quite a bit.

Step 3: Serve in two coffee mugs or small glasses; a perfectly warm Hogwarts treat for two!

Yummy! And to work up your appetite, here’s the latest trailer for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, Parts 1 & 2.

I’ve been wanting to blog about the new movie, The Human Centipede – First Sequence for a while, but never came up with the right angle.

At last, here it is.

I have found a way that for maker of the film, Tom Six, to convince me to actually see this dreck. It’s simple really,  replace the human actors with Gummi Bears!

Yes! Ed Lewis, aka fungus amungus, has perfected the art and science of Gummi Bear Surgery and has created the most bizarre and shocking procedures and creatures:

Luke sleeping the sleep of the deadEating a dead taun taun.

Hope it tastes better than it smells.

These photos are from Chris Tevas and his wife Julie’s beautiful wedding.  Chris is such a huge Star Wars nerd that he actually works as an artist for Lucasfilm (lucky duck!). At any rate, when it came time to order a grooms cake for his wedding reception, the couple tapped Courtney Clark of TLC’s Ultimate Cake Off to create this epicurean delight (?).

It was certainly one of the talks of the wedding evening. Older relatives were a bit confused, but the kids and our friends loved it! Courtney did an amazing job! My wife Julie and I are big Food Network nerds so we were geeked to hire her.

Chris and Julie have been married since 2009 and so far there have been no reports of him disappearing into a Sarlacc pit. Congratulations!
