Ever wondered how unmitigated silliness, stupidity, paranoia and hypersensivity combined look like? Well, seek no more. The Turkish Cultural Association went way over their collective heads when they attacked Lego for a perceived anti-Islamic sentiment regarding… a Lego “Jabba the Hutconstruction set.

Yes. A frigging “Jabba the Hut” from Star Wars construction set. It remembered me when William Shatner in a memorable SNL sketch told very tongue-in-cheek to trekkies everywhere TO GET A LIFE!

Seriously, was that display of righteous indignation necessary? Or was it business-as-usual, another vulgar display of power of how the Turkish Cultural Association can pick a target and make it retreat in the name of political correctness?

Beware of the dark side of the force, TCA.
