A portly 30-something man who, after becoming unemployed, has decided to stay home and work odd part-time jobs from home. He rarely leaves the house, unless he is taken somewhere by his wife or new mommy. When accosted by friends concerning his demise, he doesn't care, because it is insanely obvious that he is supremely aware of how his actions will ultimately affect him and those around him.

1. The singular term denoting a member of the Jedi, which is a fictional order of warrior priests that is depicted in the Star Wars media franchise.

2. A person who is either highly skilled at some task, or who is an extraordinary practitioner of some occupation. The word 'jedi', when used for that purpose, is usually preceded by the word that denotes that particular task, and followed by the word that denotes that particular occupation (e.g. barbecue jedi, jedi mechanic).
Yoda, the Jedi master, emphasized to his students that a jedi's power flows from the Force.
