Some people can’t get enough of Star Wars. And that’s just what the Organic food industry is counting on, having released a cute but factually questionable parody of the movie classic entitled Store Wars.  In the short flick, vegetable puppets Obi-Wan Cannoli and Cuke Skywalker try to rescue Princess Lettuce from Darth Tater with the help of Ham Solo and Chewbroccoli.  The premise is that supermarkets have been taken over by the Dark side of pesticides and pollution.  But with little scientific evidence to back up the claim that modern agriculture poses any danger at all, it looks like this film version has a lot more of The Farce than it does The Force.
