Prowse is really upset with himself

Following on from the recent Procul Harum court case, sensational news today that the Green Cross Man, real name Dave Prowse, is to sue Darth Vader, real name Dave Prowse for 50% of his joint royalties.

Dave Prowse, who played both characters, told The Spoof:

"I am constantly arguing with myself over this. I tell me that without me Vader was just a voice and that therefore I should get half of the millions I made.

But in response to that I always answer myself that because of my Bristolian accent then I could never have been Vader relying on just my finely honed, super-tall body alone.

But I'm not having that! Fair's fair I say and I firmly believe that I want me to give me what's mine.

That always leads me to accuse myself of making Vader look stupid, because as I'm also The Green Cross Man, then I'm associated with a kiddies road safety character and therefore my menace factor is diluted in the eyes of the public.

But I'm not having that either because The Green Cross Man is a good role model and I won't have a thing said about me"

Legal eagles are scratching their heads and trying to get a handle on this thorny problem before it comes to court. It has already set one legal precedent as Council for the prosecution, Sir Ralph Malph, is also Council for the defence.

George Lucas was unavailable for comment but that funny character from the films said:

"Cock up right it is"
