Darth Vader Could Be the Next President of Ukraine

 |  |  |  |  April 1, 2014

When voters go to the polls in Ukraine, they will soon have their choice between a bunch of the usual lying politicians and… Darth Vader. Hey, at least he is honest about being a jerkwad. Yes, Darth Vader has officially announced his candidacy.

darth_vader_ukraineThe Dark Lord of the Sith told RT news, “I am prepared to take responsibility for the fate of this country, if fellow citizens do me this high honor. I alone can make an empire out of a republic, to restore former glory, to return lost territories and pride for this country.”

This isn’t a complete prank. Well, it is, but it is an expensive one. Vader is being backed by a real party called the Internet Party of Ukraine which was made official back in 2007. The party has filed all the necessary paperwork and even made the required deposit of $225,225 so Darth Vader will appear as a candidate on the May 25th ballot. If he wins, I hope we finally get a Death Star.
