Every little helps…(Unless you are a Jedi)

I love this story that I stumbled across today in the Telegraph ,about a member of the church of the UK Jedi church who was ejected from his local Tesco store for refusing to take his hood off.  Having a hood up is considered a security risk in a supermarket apparently.

The victim in this story, Mr Jones – or to go by his Jedi name of Morda Hehol – said that he was “really upset” by the incident.

My favourite bit of the article was the quote from a Tesco spokesperson who said:

Jedi are very welcome to shop in our stores although we would ask them to remove their hoods.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Luke Skywalker all went hoodless without going to the Dark Side.

“If Jedi walk around our stores with their hoods on, they’ll miss lots of special offers.”

Say what you like about Tesco, but at least they have a bit of a sense of humour.
