Jediism founder suing supermarket over hood

Man, that Jedi religion guy just can’t stay out of trouble, can he? Daniel Jones, co-founder of the Jedi Church in Wales, is suing a supermarket because they told him to remove his hood.

“It states in our Jedi doctrination that I can wear headwear. It just covers the back of my head,” he said.

“You have a choice of wearing headwear in your home or at work but you have to wear a cover for your head when you are in public.”

Uh-huh. Props to Tesco for their response:

Tesco said: “He hasn’t been banned. Jedis are very welcome to shop in our stores although we would ask them to remove their hoods.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Luke Skywalker all appeared hoodless without ever going over to the Dark Side and we are only aware of the Emperor as one who never removed his hood.

“If Jedi walk around our stores with their hoods on, they’ll miss lots of special offers.”

  1. I kind of love the supermarket manager’s response about Luke, Obi-wan, and Yoda all going hoodless most of the time. If I recall correctly from one of the pieces I read, he went on and got a little smart later, making a dig about only the Emperor wearing a hood all of the time.

  2. speaking as someone who now lives next door (literally) to the largest Tesco in the UK (probably the world) which opened this morning, I have to say that’s a cool response!
