Shunned by White House, Death Star turns to Kickstarter

SailorSpork writes "Shunned by the White House, the Death Star has turned to Kickstarter to fund its evil ambitions. At £20,000,000, it will be funded and be allowed to move forward to drawing up plans and finding chicken wire to cover up that vent. If it reaches its stretch goal of £543,000,000,000,000,00 ($850,000,000,000,000,000), full construction can commence.

While clearly a joke (from TFA: "The main challenge is assuring Kickstarter that this is a joke and not a serious project. As proof, the goal has been set high enough to make successful funding almost impossible"), crazier things have happened, and funding is already over £230,000."
