We feel for a fellow Star Wars fan in the UK who was just trying to celebrate the new year with some Star Wars style. From the Yorkshire Evening Post:
"The new decade got off to a bad start for the victim, who was dressed as Obi-Wan Kenobi, when he was attacked by four youths while making his way home from a New Year's Eve fancy dress party.
The 37-year-old accounts manager was grabbed as he trekked home from the Brudenell Social Club along Queens Road, Hyde Park, Leeds, between 1.30am and 2am on New Year's Day.
As he passed the Harolds streets area he was pinned against a wall and punched and kicked to the ground from behind by four youths.
After delivering the brutal beating the cowardly yobs stole the rare Master Replica FX "lightsaber" which could cost as much as ?300 to replace."

Again, we feel for the victim, but did Yorkshire Evening Post writer Bruce Smith (not the Hall of Fame NFL defenseman) have to use the phrase "as he trekked home?" Wrong franchise and not as funny as intended considering that the victim didn't just lose a replica lightsaber, but was also beaten.
