Some guy in Queensland had one too many and decided he’d try his luck at stealing a life-size Yoda statue. Since that seemed too easy, he added a little Jedi-level challenge attempting to do this by setting the Jedi Master atop the handlebars of a bike (that he also stole). The man was arrested and Yoda was taken into custody. The best part is the official statement from the police which read:
“Yoda was later released from the Ayr watchhouse without any charges being laid but [a] caution for not wearing a helmet when riding a bike.”
The similarity to the bike scene in E.T. was also not lost on the police who described the similarities as “uncanny”.
Now I want to see a complete recreation of E.T. with a drunken Aussie playing Elliott.
