Friday Funny - Dark Side This Is

I was going to post a humorous story that I've been writing for my Friday Funny installment today, but while doing research on something for work earlier this week, I came across two hysterically funny videos that I just had to share.

Anyone who really knows me can tell you that I am directionally-challenged. Yes, I'm that woman who gets lost crossing the street. If it weren't for Mapquest, I'd be much worse off, but even that isn't fool Pamela-proof. If anybody were a prime candidate for a GPS, it is me.

So, when I came across these GPS units available with Star Wars characters voices - well  I was just about as giddy as a freaking school girl. I loved the old Star Wars movies as a kid - I remember thinking Hans Solo and Darth Vader were like, the coolest. What can I say? Even back then I had a weakness for the bad boys.

When my husband told me he'd never seen the original trilogy, I dragged him to see all three movies. I mean, how could anyone have grown up in the late 70's without seeing Star Wars? Anyway, he wasn't overly impressed, but its of those things that unless you've seen it through the magic of a child's eyes, you can't appreciate it as much.

I thought TomTom did a terrific job with these "making of" videos for the Yoda & Darth Vader voices. Now I just have to decide - do I want to be guided by a Jedi Master or by the Dark Side?

Those were great! I would go with Darth.
This reminded me of the other day when I walked in the kitchen and my daughters saying something along the lines of "forget Luke, Hans Solo is Hot!" It really cracked me up because about 100 years ago I thought the same thing.

I'm pretty sure my husband is having an affair with the voice of our GPS, so I wouldn't dare put Darth Vader on there! The GPS lady keeps him out of my hair!
You're so funny Pam, I love that you are excited about GPS voices!

If my Big kid controlled the budget he would want that!in fact, we are on route to take him to Star Wars in Concert. Not sure who is more excited. The 4 year old or his dad!

When I came across these I about peed myself, I was laughing so hard. I don't have a GPS, but now I'm really tempted just so I can get these voices. I'm just dying laughing at your last sentence. Dark side Pamela, come to the DARK SIDE!! The boys are sexier.
