Who wouldn't want a 'Star Wars'-themed burger?

European fast-food chain Quick is cooking up a trio of Star Wars-themed burgers to tie in with the 3D release of "Star Wars: Episode I--The Phantom Menace."

Poppy seeds = evil. Fine. What are the white nubs on the Jedi Burger, though? Quick

On February 10, "Star Wars: Episode I--The Phantom Menace" will come back to theaters, this time in 3D. That means we can expect to see Star Wars tie-ins squeezed out worldwide.

With that in mind, if you're in Europe and you're near a Quick restaurant, you might want to swing by and try one of the trio of Star Wars-themed burgers. There's the Jedi Burger, which looks relatively benevolent; the Dark Burger, the bun of which has poppy seeds, a sure sign of evil if I ever saw one; and the Dark Vador Burger. Dark Vador is what Darth Vader is called in French (man, they have a word for everything, don't they?), but that's probably not what draws your attention so much as the OMG WHAT IS--

Suddenly a Krabby Patty doesn't look so bad. Quick

--the black bun.

I don't know if I could eat one of those--not that there's anything wrong with it; I'm sure it's just dye. But your brain has certain expectations, and hamburger buns being a golden brown is one of them. One wonders if these burgers will have the um, novelty that some people experienced after eating Taco Bell's Black Jack Tacos with the black taco shells.

If you're feeling adventurous, you've got until March 1 to try them (the Jedi Burger lasts until March 5 for some reason. Anti-Sith sentiment, maybe?). Hopefully no one experiences any Force choking.
