The BBC released an article today, showcasing the US Navy’s new LASER GUN!!!  The Navy test-fired the gun to disable a small boat by setting its engine on fire.

Now if only they’d get those lightsabers working:

Star Wars in the Arts

April 5, 2011


Sometimes it’s good to appreciate the finer things in life.  Star Wars fans do it all the time.  Have a look!

Just ignore the titles; the puns are free.



Every year, at least a few different Star Wars fans manage to release hilarious Star Wars-themed gags.  This year is no exception.

The developers working on Star Wars: Old Republic released a profile of one of their new characters for the highly anticipated game.  You can check out its profile by clicking here.

Another gag, isn’t actually a new gag at all.  Two years ago ThinkGeek featured an unusual style of sleeping bag on their website.  It looked like this:


Unfortunately for ThinkGeek, everyone thought exactly what you’re thinking: I want one!  After receiving massive amounts of requests for the Star Wars sleep sack, ThinkGeek had no choice but to actually develop their prank.  Today, the bag is on sale at ThinkGeek’s website for the small price of $99.99.

It seems for dedicated Star Wars fans, anything is possible – even turning a ruse into reality.

Now if only Jar Jar had been an April Fools prank…
