Senator Palpatine

I spotted this life-size, cardboard figure outside a supposed "family friendly" snack bar over the weekend. Is it just me or does this guy bear a striking resemblance to Senator Palpatine, aka The Emperor, from Star Wars? I think it must be a combination of the way that hot dog hood casts a shadow over his evil eyes and the menacing grin he's sporting. Either way, I'm officially freaked out.

ewww. Family friendly? My Dad used to work for Armour Swift Eckrich (sp?), a meat company. They had a big hot dog costume. Jill wore it once for Halloween in elementary school. Talk about eye catching.
