Dog Vader on The Simpsons

Bonnie Burton | November 15, 2011

On a recent episode of The Simpsons, Bart gets inspiration to build a robo-pet for his science project from his dog Santa’s Little Helper wearing a Darth Vader helmet. Of course, Homer takes the accidental costume a bit too seriously… or just right.

Bart: “Hey what if we make some kind of robo-pet?”
Martin: “What made you think of that?”
(Bart points to his dog wearing a Darth Vader helmet. Dog with helmet walks into the hallway and intercepts Homer.)
Homer: (screams and bows down to dog) “Thy will be done Lord Vader. Just don’t hurt me, oh please!”

George Clooney Shows Off His Jedi Mind Tricks Team | August 28, 2009

In the upcoming movie The Men Who Stare at Goats, Bob Wilton — a reporter (played by Ewan McGregor) thinks he has the story of a lifetime when he meets Lyn Cassady (played by George Clooney), a man who claims to be a former member of the U.S. Army’s First Earth Battalion — a unit that employs paranormal powers in their missions.

Based on the non-fiction book by the same name, the movie is bound to be saturated with Jedi references if it’s anything like these quotes from the trailer:

Bob Wilton: “So what you’re saying is that you were a psychic spy?”
Lyn Cassady: “A Jedi warrior.”

Lyn Cassady: “We’re Jedi. We don’t fight with guns, we fight with our minds.”

The irony that actor Ewan McGregor who played Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars Prequels is getting schooled in the ways of the Jedi by George Clooney just makes the movie that much more entertaining. The movie also gets extra points for bringing back The Dude (Jeff Bridges) in a glorious way.
