Even Disneyland cannot withstand the power of the dark side of The Force

Lord Vader, it is our grave duty to inform you that the revamped Star Tours attraction at California's Disneyland opened the first weekend in June. The 24-year-old ride is now a iridescent Death Star of 3D technology, high-def video and cutting-edge animatronics.

Speak truth to power (if you can get a word in)

We've all had to deliver difficult news to a colleague or client. Just be thankful that the recipient wasn't Darth Vader. Particularly the prankster Darth as seen in this mashup.
