Faster, Higher, Stronger...Hoth?

Yahoo! News: "Shane Igoe has a solution for what ails the
Winter Olympics: Hoth.

As in the sixth planet of the Hoth universe. As in the icy land where Luke Skywalker nearly froze his tauntauns off. As in the completely make-believe Star Wars world.

'That's sort of the catch,' concedes Igoe on the last point.

Details aside, Igoe has launched a campaign to make Hoth the host planet for the 2014 Winter Olympics. The mock effort comes complete with a Website,, an online petition, and, in a twist, a serious intent. "

Lucas is making a movie of this effort: Star Wars Episode VII: Revenge of the Nerds
