This is a little story about a guy named Thesith Williams, who was looking for a fresh start. He figured a clever way would be to "seek revenge" by naming his web site after the title of the latest film in the uber-over-hyped Star Wars franchise. Actually this is a story about a guy who snatches the domain, revengeofthesith.com and concocts a clever story of a pseudo-ficticious novel that the web site promotes, whereupon he can capitalize on the notoriety of the aforementioned George Lucas separate-a-geek-from-his-money-fest.
