Surely if you were a Jedi, you would have better things to do; such as hunting down Sith Lords, flying spaceships at great speeds in very tight spaces, and convincing people that these aren't the droids you are looking for.
But no. There is actually a Jedi running for Auckland Super City leadership. I have been told it isn't a joke. I don't know how to feel. I quote:
My name is Craig Thomas, I am a Jedi. For too long the Jedi Order and politics have been kept separate. But no more. The Waitemata Board is desperately in need of my infinite Jedi wisdom....Support light-sabre based progress. Do, or do not, there is no try; Vote for Jedi Craig.
He won't be needing to send me a letter with five people's names on it to lose my vote...
Also, his picture looks ridiculous.
