Yoda Dollars coming soon to a small South Pacific Island not so near you!

Newser) – Move over, Queen Elizabeth: Luke Skywalker and friends will soon be sharing a spot on the currency of a tiny Pacific island. Yoda, Leia, and Darth Vader also will appear on the flip side of the soon-to-be-minted coins for the island of Niue. It’s the first time Star Wars characters will show up on legal tender, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. Though the country uses New Zealand currency, the coins will be usable only in Niue. And don’t expect them to see much use even on the island: They're geared toward collectors, and some of the two-dollar coins will have an actual value of about $100 because they're made with silver. Others will be made of less expensive silver-plated metal. Still, "no one is going to go buy an ice cream with them,” says a rep for the New Zealand mint. The coins will be displayed next week at a coin show in Chicago, and new ones will be added until 2014. Dan-We are pleased that we can bring you news of this fine investment opportunity.  Beat the corporate raiders with a stack of Vader's--reach your Yoda quota and reap the benefits.  Thank you people of Niue!

Condoms fit for a King!

With Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding just months away -- an English condom company wants to make sure they don't add to the royal family too soon ... with condoms fit for a king. 0128_royal_condomsz The joke condoms aren't affiliated with the royal family -- but that doesn't make the website's description any less hilarious ... "Combining the strength of a Prince with the yielding sensitivity of a Princess-to-be, Crown Jewels condoms promise a royal union of pleasure." But don't sheath your sword just yet -- there's a disclaimer at the bottom of the site that reads, "Crown Jewels Royal Wedding Souvenir Condoms are a novelty condom not suitable for contraception or protection against STDs." Thanks for the heads up.

Sing along with R.E.M.

We've seen acts get their songs on YouTube quickly by making a lyric video, which flashes all the words to the song as it goes along. But R.E.M.'s lyric video for "Discoverer" takes it one step further -- the clip is designed to look like a karaoke video.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Ghq8vs-yBo "Discoverer" is from R.E.M.'s album Collapse Into Now, which is due out March 8th.
