• Darth Vader Announces His Run for the Presidency of Ukraine

    I find your lack of faith disturbing

    It may sound like an April Fool’s joke, but this guy seems deadly serious. Darth Vader has just announced that he’s running to be President of Ukraine. He’ll be a candidate for the Ukrainian Internet Party, whose main goal is to eliminate the use of paper and create a “government by Internet.” The party has been officially registered for four years now.

    “After winning intra-party primaries by a landslide, Comrade Vader will be our party’s candidate,” says Dmitry Golubov, the founder of the party, who points out that in the 2012 parliamentary elections, Vader won three percent of the vote.

    Darth says he intends to “restore former glory” to the troubled country, and if that means using the Dark Side of The Force to achieve his ends, you can expect he’ll do it. He can often be seen flanked by loyal Stormtroopers on Kiev’s Independence Square during protests:

    In truth, we don’t know exactly who is underneath the Vader mask, though it’s probably not Dick Cheney. Still, if he plans on building a Death Star, he’d better hop to it before Putin gives him a run for his money.
