Just as Mark thought he was going to reach the forks and be able to use them against the army of cloned Darth Taters, one of the dozens of spuds attacking him stepped in and kicked the forks out of his reach away.
Mark was left with nothing more than his bare hands to fight the swarming taters.
But, without use of the forks he was unable to stop the deadly attack.
Although he tried desperately to get out of the situation, it was just too much.
In a very anticlimactic and disappointing plot turn, Mark was killed. Darth and his army of clones were victorious.
Darth himself stood at the head of his enemy's dead body and told his clones to stand aside.
"We must honour our enemy," Darth said. "And treat his downfall with the respect he truly deserves."
When the clones all stepped away, Darth stood silently, regarding his fallen enemy. Then he took off his mask, took a deep breath and said . . .
"Nah, Nah. In your face, Mark. In your face! Nah, Nah! I'm better than yoooou." Then he did a little happy dance and started to bop around singing "Nah nah nah nah, nah nah nah nah. Heeeeeey, Goooooodbye."
But in the middle of his dance and celebration, a voice could be heard. "My Daddy! What have you done to my Daddy?"
It was Mark's son, Alexander. And boy did he look pissed.
To be continued next week in HNT - Spud Wars: Alex Attacks
With his father lying dead on the floor, victim of a clone spud attack, will Alexander achieve the revenge he seeks? More importantly, did Alexander bring any ketchup along so he can enjoy the fruits of his victory? (Seriously, has anybody ever seen a toddler attack a group of toys? Let's be honest here - Darth and his army don't stand a chance, now do they?) And if Mark is dead, how could he be writing this blog post? Isn't that one of those strange loophole stories where you find at the very end the POV character as narrator has died? Except, of course Mark isn't the first person narrator of this tale, I AM . . . and . . . er, okay, let's not go there . . .
To find out what happens next in this very silly story check back next Thursday for the continuing multi-generational storyline of . . .
