  2. Australian Cosplayer’s Stormtrooper Armor Stops Snakebite

    Of COURSE this was in Australia.

    "What kind of person creates armor that restricts the soldier's vision so much?" you ask idly, watching extras shuffle around in stormtrooper outfits. "ONE THAT UNDERSTANDS THE BEST GUARD AGAINST THE SERIOUS THREAT OF SPACE SNAKES," I interject, "IS CONSTANT VIGILANCE."

    I believe in baby bat burritos.

    D'oh!
