‘Sith’ Ridiculousness

'Sith' Ridiculousness

Okay, I understand just about every marketing gimmick in place for the new Star Wars. Dark (side) chocolate M&M’s? Fine, tastes good. Darth Tater Mr. Potato Head? Okay, it’s a stretch, but at least it’s kind of old-school cool and taps into the same generation as the 1980s Star Wars fanbase. But when the media tries to put their own spin on Star Wars, it can get a little silly…

On CNN.com this weekend, as part of a story on the business of the trilogy, there is a featured poll that asks the all-important question, “Which of these individuals would you least like to loan money to?”

At the time of this posting, about 1950 people cast their votes. Take a look at the options and the poll results:

Yoda
4%

Boba Fett
11%

Chewbacca
2%

Jar Jar Binks
28%

Former Tyco CEO Dennis Kozlowski
55%
