It may be Europe’s most far-out celebration of the year.
This July, travelers from across Europe will descend on Essen, Germany for an out-of-this-world party in honor of what some would call the greatest saga of all time.
But travelers beware…
Leave your Vuvuzelas and Silly String at home.
If you don’t, you may be subject to punishment of galactic dimensions.
Due to the nature of this event, a very specific weapons policy has been devised.
Party-goers accustomed to bringing along their daggers, hatchets, knives, kunai, shuriken, swords, and sword canes will have to leave them behind.
That goes for slingshots and water balloons, too.
Because we’re not talking about any ordinary party.
We’re talking about an inter-galactic nerd-fest:
But before you get your Jedi Underoos in a bunch, the organizers assure fans they’re not trying to dissuade anyone’s costuming passion, they just had to draw the line at projectile, metal, and chemical weapons.
I think that rules out blasters, but as far as I can tell… light sabers are okay.
By the way, if you’re wondering what a Vuvuzela is, join the club.
I had to look it up:
Now I see why these weapons are banned!
