    1. “I suppose tragedy plus time DOES equal comedy”.

      First of all… what tragedy? Every death isn’t necessarily a tragedy.

      Second of all… yes, sometimes. :)

  1. There’s a Vader’s Restaurant in suburban Philadelphia. I’m sure they’re quite tired of the jokes by now…

    “When we last met I was your server… now I am the master!”

    “I have altered your tab. Pray that I do not alter it again.”

    “The headwaiter is not as forgiving as I am.”

    1. There’s a Jedi Garden (Greek family owned?) restaurant in Chicago’s SW suburbs. I don’t know if they get any jokes, but I always think of jokes when I pass by. “These are not the specials you are looking for.”

      Also, there was a priest in our parish, Father Vader. There’s a joke there somewhere, I just never made one.

  2. ‘Vader’ in indeed Dutch for ‘father’, but in this case it seems to be someone’s family name: ‘Anna, wife of Daniel P. Vader’.

  3. When researching my family tree in elementary school I discovered that I was related to a Vader from Virginia. I was disappointed to find out that his first name was not Darth. ):

  4. And all this time I thought the last-minute change of heart meant that he died as Anakin Skywalker.

  5. There’s at least one Vader buried in the Mt. Hope Cemetery in Rochester, NY, too. I think I may have a photo of it somewhere.

    Anyway, having a name starting with D and the last name Vader is great, even if it isn’t Darth. There’s nothing stopping you from writing your name as D. Vader, which if I were Daniel P. Vader (and if I didn’t die well before the films were made) I would be sure to do where appropriate.
