"I find your lack of 20's disturbing." Darth Vader totally just robbed a bank!

Times are tough for the Empire. Apparently the Dark Lord of the Sith walked into a Chase Bank branch in Setauket, New York last week with a gun and demanded that the teller hand over the contents of her drawer or he would, "Get medieval on her like her name was Alderaan."

Usually when Vader robs banks, he just uses the power of the force to confuse tellers into tossing a few extra hundreds into his withdrawal. The force has great power over the weak minded...and tellers. Apparently Darth has also hocked his lightsaber, as a mere hand gun is not an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

Nonetheless, if you're going to rob a bank...May as well do it as one of the great villains in movie history. As a former bank employee who was once robbed at gunpoint, I don't mean to make light of a crazy person using the threat of violence against bank employees, but even I have to admit that robbing a bank as Lord Vader is pretty cool.

Sweet! I saw an AP story about this the other week, but I didn't realize there was a photo to go with it. Sweet sassy molassy, that's awesome.
