Scar Wars – a Scarface, Star Wars Mash-up

I ran across this mash-up of Han Solo from Star Wars and Tony Montana from Scarface over at the Entertainment Weekly site.

It’s funny stuff, although there is some adult language involved. Hey, it’s Tony freakin’ Montana people. Of course, there are some F-bombs involved.

EW also has a Star Trek/A-Team mash-up, if you’re so inclined.

Halloween Costume Fail

Not everyone can come up with a cool costume idea and then execute it to perfection like these sushi costumes.

Often, the idea is interesting, but the final result falls short of expectations.

Two buddies or a couple opt to do a tandem costume, say Bert & Ernie.

In theory, great idea.

These creepy make-up mock-ups are more a scary pairing of Nightmare on Elm Street and Sesame Street.

Also, creepy in this pic – the pink frilly bear behind them. What?

How about we double the fun and expand things to four with The Simpsons.

Lisa’s eyes are wigging me out, but I do appreciate the fact that Homer has the appropriate liquid accessory.

And even more strange is the fact that in the background you can spot a Christmas tree. Which holiday are they celebrating?

Check out a costume based on everyone’s favorite buzzing childhood game – Operation.

Look closely and you can spot the familiar red nose. Hey, there’s the broken heart and Adam’s apple hot glued to his T-shirt, however, I don’t believe my original game included that piece attached to his left thigh.

Alrighty, let’s get our geek on now.

Gather up your friends, some garbage bags, pieces of cardboard and put on your own version of Star Wars.

You read that piece of paper in the pic correctly. That’s a blue garbage can standing in for R2D2.

Break out the silverware – we’re going to go all Wolverine on you now.

That’s right. Just don’t shave for a day, use saran wrap or packing tape to bind some butter knives and a few forks to your hands and get your X on.

The next duo’s costumes are actually well done, but they just don’t realize that in six or seven years, their good and evil paradox will likely play out all over again when they’re at the mercy of the double whammy of puberty and peer pressure.

And in 2009, the year of the celebrity death, how about an officially licensed Michael Jackson costume.

Obese Monkeys Put On Diets

When I first glanced at the pic above, I thought it was Jabba the Hut from the Star Wars movies about to leer at Princess Leia.

But NOOO.

It’s an obese monkey in a park in Japan.

The zoo keepers are putting the not so cheeky but definitely jowly primates on a diet.

It seems well-meaning visitors to the park often chuck sweets and treats over the fence into the monkeys’ area. The largest of the least likely to be swinging from a tree primates is currently at more than twice the average body weight for the species (29kg instead of 11 kg).

Maybe these monkeys were the inspiration for one of my favorite flavors of Ben & Jerry’s delightful creations.

Drunk Darth Vader

So it seems a drunk young man in the UK assaulted his neighbors.

That’s not so out of the norm.

However, add in the fact that the victims were filming their lightsaber battles in their backyard during the assault and it gets a bit odder.

Then throw in the fact that the perpetrator used a black garbage bag and a cape as his own Star Wars costume and screamed “Darth Vader” repeatedly during the assault and it amps up the strange factor quite a bit.

Not done yet though. “Darth” used a metal crutch to assault his neighbors. A crutch he later claimed in court he had no recollection of acquiring.

For those not familiar with the Star Wars saga, let this 3-year-old girl explain it for you.
