Thank you for all your entries. Readers seemed equally divided between those who thought Teresa Earnhardt or Jeff Gordon might lurk behind that Darth Vader mask. Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received this week:
"So I figured; Why not team up with someone else that lost an Empire?"
"Why does he keep calling me a wookie, I'm just changing teams!"
"In time, I'll help you loose that image Jeff."
"Hey Teresa. Wow!! I've never seen you without your make-up on."
"The money cut through the dark side like a light saber!"
Dale and the IntmiVader
"You think this guy is evil? You should meet my stepmom!"
"I've gotta start winning sooner or Vader!"
"See, I told you Theresa, that mask does make you look less evil!"
“All I had to do was change my name to Jeff Gordon, Jr.”
"I joined the Dark Side…so what? It’s gotta be better than working for Theresa…"
"Hey...after working for Teresa, this is an upgrade!"
"I'd like to introduce my new Crew Chief."
"It's nice to see Vice-President Cheney come out to support us."
"May the farce be with you!"
"I just felt I had a better chance of winning if I left the Rebel Alliance."
