Episode IV - A New Dope - Same As the Old Dope

A New Dope - Same As the Old Dope

It is a period of civil war. Rebel bloggers, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Blogosphere and its hidden ruler, Sith Lord Dopey-Wan Kenobi.

During the battle, Rebel blogger spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the Death Blog, a fortified blog site with enough power to destroy an entire blogger.

Pursued by the Empire’s sinister bloggers, Jedi York races to post from his blogship, custodian of the stolen plans that can save bloggers everywhere and restore freed to the Blogosphere....

DOPEY-WAN KENOBI has fired off yet another digusting diatribe smearing the name of your friendly Jedi Blogger. The Sith Lord Kenobi has brought chaos and fear to the Blogosphere. Dopey-Wan, in his typical cavalier fashion, authoritatively states:

The Jedi do not start wars.

I fear the Blogosphere is far too trusting of this Sith Lord masquerading as a Jedi Blogger. While it is true that Jedi do not start wars, it is also written (and true) that Jedi do not deceive for personal gain. Much like Chancellor Palpatine, Sith Lord Dopey-Wan Kenobi is feigning passivity, yet El Dopo fired a shot across my Corillean bow with the smear in referring to this blog as "that thing you call a blog". The condescension is dripping from his slack-jaw.

Much like Yoda, from October through April, I retreated to the sanctity of Dagobah to train and reflect, not to churn out meaningless drivel about dark chocolate M&M's or ... ok that is the only good example - but it speaks for itself (res ipsa loquitur).

In my training, I have become more powerful and wise, and a bigger threat to the Sith Lord's hegemony. I only hope that I have arrived in time to quell this evil uprising.
