This video is a few years old, but since Eddie Izzard has been in town lately, playing a handful of late-night shows at Largo, his riff on the Death Star canteen (that's British for “cafeteria”) is timely. And hilarious, especially when animated with Lego. Watch as Darth Vader complains about wet trays, threatens to kill a hapless cafeteria employee and goes unrecognized by Jar Jar Binks. We want to know: If Vader can Force Choke Admiral Motti, why can't he make cafeteria food taste better? [Video after the jump.]
