  Ugly legal battle over Star Wars III title

Announced on Monday, geeks prattled on about the latest title to be announced in the Star Wars franchise machine. The latest chapter, entitled"Revenge of the Sith", has ignited what, The Absurdist has learned, may be one of the ugliest legal battles in movie history.

"It's just not fair," exclaims actor Anthony Edwards. "George Lucas has enough money and resources to create something very original. I mean, come on- Revenge of the Sith is such an obvious rip-off on Revenge of the Nerds. It's totally unnecessary."

With an established four Revenge of the Nerds movies spanning a decade, there is no question who rules the Revenge franchise.

Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation director Roland Mesa comments, "Even Quentin Tarantino knew enough to stay away from the word 'revenge' when naming his latest homage to the grinder house revenge genre, Kill Bill. You just don't cross nerds. George Lucas is looking for trouble."

Whatever the case may be, studio attorneys are keeping 'mum' about the intricate details of the proposed injunction until resolved in court.
