Darth VS Jody On a Bookshelf Far, Far Away . . .

I have some weird habits.  The kind where if I don't do them then my whole world might spiral into ruin.  One such habit is every so often, when my life is looking not-so-good, slightly adjusting the Jody Davis and Darth Vader figurines on my book shelf could alter my destiny.  These two have been in an epic duel for around 10 years, Darth with his light saber and Jody with his catchers mitt.  Hardly seems fair, right?  The saber could slice through bone like butter without even swinging very hard, while the mitt could stop a fastball but your hand will still probably sting a little.  What's more, Darth is an intergalactic tyrant with the galaxy at his fingertips, and meanwhile Jody Davis is a lifetime .245 catcher for a team that loses most of their games, the Chicago Cubs.  

I couldn't rotate this picture, but to hell with it.  I like it better like this because with Darth on top, Jody is getting dominated even more.  He is the power bottom (of the division).
If you'll notice in the first picture, Darth has his light saber ready to slice off Mr. Davis' head.  This is when life has me by the balls and it looks like there is no hope.  

"The Cubs join the Empire?  Never!!!!"
But not so fast!  Jody has slipped his glove to the inside, blocking Darth!  This ever so slight of an adjustment can be made on any given day and everything can turn around for me.  And I actually believe this can help matters.

Anyone else do stuff like this or am I just completely nuts?

Jody Davis? I haven't heard that name in a long time. Glad to see he is keeping busy with his buddy Darth Vadar. I do stuff like this but only with my kids stuffed animals. It's always makes me chuckle to see Elmo being a power bottom as he's getting manhandled by Buzz Lightyear. Have a good one Dr. Ken.

I like playing with a light saber when I am bored or stressed out but it is usually it's not plastic...

They remind me of the household gods the Romans used to venerate, so maybe it's your version of religion. I'd like to see more Jodies - have you heard of Jody Scheckter?

Shife: Buzz went to infinity and beyond . . . in Elmo's butthole.

Thatdarn: Haven't seen you in a while. I see you still employ the same stress relief strategy.

Gorilla: You're right, like in "Clash of the Titans!" Maybe that's where I got it.

I don't think it is nuts but honestly there must be a part of you that is still 8 years old. Maybe it is a good thing. No telling what that part of us that used to be used for playing with action figures is doing now. Go ahead and speculate if you want.

David: I think I'm MOSTLY an 8-yr-old at heart. In fact, I was 8 when Jody won his division.

Just telling it like it is said...

Yeah a leopard never changes it's spots...
