Lame Jokes Makes Star Wars Fans go to the Dark Side

Aggression and anger both lead to the dark side of the force. So it seems ironic that after a Fox News host made some lame jokes about Star Wars and its fans, some of those fans decided to make death threats against her.

Yoda would be very disappointed in all of you.

Katherine Timpf of Fox News made some "jokes" about Star Wars, saying "I wasn't familiar with Star Wars because I've been too busy liking cool things and being attractive," and then how she wasn't interested in "watching space nerds poke each other with their little space nerd sticks." So I guess it's safe to say that Katherine Timpf won't be one of the billions of people who will go to see The Force Awakens.

I'd never heard of Katherine Timpf of Fox News before today, but I know two things about her:

1) She's a troll. As a host on a talk show, she would know better than anyone that the way to get publicity is to troll, and what better to troll than a move that is getting a TON of press.

2) She needs new material. She didn't watch Star Wars because she was too busy "being attractive"? That joke is made at least once an episode on The Big Bang Theory, and it's not particularly funny there either. If you're going to troll, at least have the decency to come up with new jokes.

But in the end, all it took was a couple dumb comments to send many Star Wars fans to the dark side.

The Empire has already won.
