This is from the Brief News column in a recent copy of The New Zealand Herald (the national newspaper) ...

The staff of Burger King Invercargill arrived at work on Sunday morning to find that the large blow-up Darth Vader figure perched on the roof of the restaurant had been stolen. Burger King want it back and they're prepared to offer a whopper of a reward to get it. Glenn Corbett, Burger King New Zealand's general manager, says there's a year's worth of Whopper burgers for anyone returning the inflatable Darth.
A year's supply of Whopper burgers or a "rare" inflatable Vader ... well that's an easy choice - I'd keep the Vader!

And, no I didn't steal it. Invercargill is WAY at the other end of the country.

Actually, it has been very stormy here in New Zealand for the last week or so, so it's possible that it could of "flown away" if it hadn't been tied down properly. :)

I've never been inside a Burger King place, so I've never tried their burgers, but even if they were THE best burgers on the planet I'd prefer to have the "rare" inflatable Vader in my collection ... then I could sell it on scamBay for piles of money. ;)
