?This past Saturday, there was a car wash event in L.A. It was a car wash staffed by attractive girls in Star Wars costumes, mostly Slave Leia. So basically, for a price, a gaggle of Slave Leias washed your car. The proceeds benefited the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Apparently it was sponsored by G4’s Attack of the Show, making it that show’s finest moment by a long shot.

I… I don’t know what to feel right now. I’m bitterly furious that I didn’t get to go to the event, nor was I ever close, but at the same time it’s very gratifying to know that I live in a reality where a Slave Leia car wash event can occur. I think, at the very least, I’ll sleep a little easier tonight. Thanks to all jillion of you who sent this in.
