Over on The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the Twenty-First Century, you’ll find this awesome mousetrap adorned with a painted portrait of Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars, with the apt blog title “Admiral Obvious.” His most famous and oft-quoted line is implied here: “It’s a trap!”

I like that this maker actually painted a real mousetrap, rather than just making a cutesy digital illustration of their idea. It’s ten times more rad because of the fact that it exists in the real world somewhere.

Fun fact: Those die-hard Star Wars fans probably already knew this, but I just found out: Admiral Ackbar is a member of the Mon Calamari species.
