Tattooed Twit

There's something about the possibilty of being tattooed that turns some people into complete idiots. Take this story, for example:

'A student is taking his Star Wars obsession into hyperdrive by covering his body in tattoos of characters from the films.

Clarke Reynolds, from Rochester in Kent, started getting the tattoos three years ago and now intends to turn every inch of skin into a tribute to George Lucas's epic series.

So far the 24-year-old has a huge image of the Millennium Falcon - complete with pilots Han Solo and Wookie Chewbacca - etched across his back. Down his arms are light-sabre motifs featuring many other famous characters from the original trilogy, including droids R2-D2 and C3-PO.

Mr Reynolds said: "I've still got more to go. I want it to look like a movie poster for one of the films. I've always been a big fan of Star Wars and this is my way of showing how much I love it."'

I'm sorry, but that takes pathetic to a whole new level. He's not the only one; I was listening to the radio the other day, and a man came on who has collected every piece of Star Wars memorabilia he can get his hands on. Asked if he had a significant other, he replied:

"No - I haven't enough room in my house."

A tribute site for George Lucas has been opened at thanking him for 28 years of Star Wars. They want to get 1,000,000 signatures and stories to him later this summer.
