The Death Star Seeks Crowdfunding for Image Rehab

NerdPr0n alert:  BP, al-Qaida, Taco Bell, Michael Vick, pantsless members of Congress.  All have the need for image rehabilitation, and the budget required varies wildly.  Apparently the Galactic Empire–aka Darth Vader and his army of d-bags–have no money to pay their agency Death Star PR.  The one-client firm believes in the cause so much they’ve turned to crowdfunding solution IndieGoGo to raise the cash to keep going.  If they get it, DSPR plans to use the $30,000 for a video series, coming off their successful Twitter campaign.  If not, no promises about the safety of Earth.  Only $29,323 and 36 days remaining to reach the goal!
