Storm Troopers and Darth Vader in Real Life: Star Wars Reads in Pembroke Pines (PHOTOS and VIDEO)

Fart jokes from a galaxy far, far away were delivered by Storm Troopers to Pembroke Pines this weekend. Star Wars fans of all ages turned out Saturday afternoon to take pictures with a handful of lovable costumed crazies. There was storytime, arts and crafts, a raffle giveaway, and John Williams blasting over the loud speaker. If that's what heaven's like, then I'm totally repenting.

Members of the 501st Legion, Everglades Squad, touched down at Barnes and Noble on Saturday afternoon to commemorate the first national Star Wars Reads Day. Events took place at more than 1,000 libraries and bookstores around the country. Classy gents that they are, the Everglades Squad let us follow them around to snap a few candid shots. Boy, did we learn a thing or two about intergalactic thug life.  

10. "TK-421, why aren't you at your post?" Well, because he has Beiber-fever! Leave the man be.

9. Even Dark Lords have to wait in line, just like everyone else. It's a shame Vader couldn't exhibit this kind of patience before his fall to the dark side.
