May the force be with you!

This is freakin amazing. I nearly shat myself laughing. (Yes, I'm such a lady!)

I shouldn't really laugh because it's mean; those poor people get teased mercilessly as it is, but hey, this time they had it coming for them.

Wil Wheaton blogged about it:

"So there are these Star Wars √úbernerds who are lining up in front of Grauman's for the premiere of "Revenge of the Sith" in a couple of months.
The only problem is, "Return of the Sith" isn't going to screen at Graumans. For reasons that are best left to the shadowy corners of The Film Distribution World, it will be playing at the Arclight, which is about a half-mile away. (The Arclight, by the way, is the best theater in Los Angeles. Nobody else even comes close.)
When they found out about this unfortunate turn of events, the Star Wars Nerds naturally packed up their stuff, and walked down the block to Arclight.
Except they didn't. They're keeping the line right where it is . . .
as a self-described act of protest.
Before I go any further, I'd like to make something crystal clear: Camping out for a couple of months before the opening of a movie is a little weird . . . but essentially cool. That kind of passion is what makes it so much fun to be a Nerd.
But camping out at the wrong theater and refusing to move
in protest is hilarious, and it's what makes it embarrassing to be a Nerd."

Funny? It gets better. You should really read the full blog and follow the links, especially when a blogger girl called Jessica Stover, who reported on this as well, decides to feed the nerds with some pizza. The result is one of the funniest true stories I have read in ages. I admire that girl. She's got the cheeks, dude!

K. Gotta wipe beer off my monitor now. Beer snorted through nose really stings!
