"See we was talkin' 'bout light sabers and drinkin' tequila..."

You can't make this kind of stuff up!

Two Star Wars fans are in a critical condition in hospital after apparently trying to make light sabres by filling fluorescent light tubes with petrol.

A man, aged 20, and a girl of 17 are believed to have been filming a mock duel when they poured fuel into two glass tubes and lit it.

A police spokeswoman said the pair were taken to West Herts Hospital before being transferred to the specialist burns unit at Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, in Essex.

They are both said to be in a critical condition.

She added: "At this stage we are unable to confirm the exact circumstances, but glass tubes and traces of accelerant (flammable substance) were found at the scene."

These two sound like refugees from the moronic MTV show, Jackass.

Usually this type of thing is the result of a lot of drinking and one bright guy saying to the other, "Hey! Hold muh beer 'n watch this!"
