Using the force at Tesco

The founder of the Jedi religion was asked to leave a Tesco convenience store in the UK for not following the store policy of removing the hood while in the store. Understandable - store security cameras can't identify you if you have a hood on.

Tesco's response was rather tongu-in-cheek: "Jedis are very welcome to shop in our stores although we would ask them to remove their hoods. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Luke Skywalker all appeared hoodless without ever going over to the Dark Side and we are only aware of the Emperor as one who never removed his hood. If Jedi walk around our stores with their hoods on, they'll miss lots of special offers."
