Why, so he can sue George Lucas for making him look fat?
Fuck that shit. Let's put dong_resin in Episode Three.

I'm no Laurence Olivier, but I can do a damn fine wookie.

Not after that little asshat started suing people for that funny as hell video. Screw him.

I think you may have just stumbled across another all-purpose instant catchphrase, riff.

Give me frogs. Give me santa. Gime me Riffola.

He did what EVERY fan does when given a broomstick. He became Darth Fanboy. Way to go Ghyslain!

That is really bizarre, riffola. I'd love to hear an explanation if anyone has one?

Ride that jiggly little bastard hard and put him up wet.

Or : no.

Hey, I've got a really great idea that'll make the third prequel worse than the first two!
No. It's wrong. He made a fool of himself. He shouldn't be awarded for it.

I don't care that he made a fool of himself, it would offend me if the little shit was rewarded after his litigatious nature was revealed. We've all done embarrassing things or had embarrassing things happen. Sometimes it's happened on film or in public. We don't sue people for it.

Yes, we do! Pay attention, there, substrate.

Damn, sorry stupidsexyFlanders. I will sue you all for every typo you've witnessed, every grammatical error and every spelling mistake. I'm going to sue my parents for those embarrassing photo they've taken. I'm suing my high school for witnessing the lost swimsuit incident during a swim meet.

I'd sign a petition to put Blair Hornstein in Episode III.
posted by soyjoy at 10:01 AM on July 16, 2003


But only if they leave her there.
posted by soyjoy at 10:05 AM on July 16, 2003


Only if she gets to be the ONLY Jedi. If they make her co-jedi, I don't think Lucas will be able to afford the legal fees.
posted by CountZero at 10:12 AM on July 16, 2003


She could play Jar Jar's twin sister.

I've never heard of these movies before...

Here's a site with both versions as well as plenty of others.

Screw Blair - she stole her moves from Darth Maul.

I'd like to see the response to this petition.

How about a petition for a good Epsidode III?

Soyjoy: Hate to break it to you, but Star Wars is not actually filmed in outer space.

Huh?


I noticed a few MeFi people in there with odd comments. Also someone dislikes a girl named Jessica as her number is in there several times.

What the hell, why not? There was a rather ample X-wing pilot whose handle was "Porkins" in Episode IV.

Petitions are insignificant next to the power of the Force.

created by and written by Fred Quimby.

Wasn't this guy involved in Tom and Jerry cartoons?

Hey, I've got a really great idea that'll make the third prequel worse than the first two!

Anything that demonstrates that George Lucas hasn't passed the event horizon of solipsism would be really redeeming. This qualifies.

No. It's wrong. He made a fool of himself. He shouldn't be awarded for it.

No, you're wrong: someone else took one of his "dance like no one's watching" moments and made it public. Not cool.

alumshubby: Agreed. It's just too classic an in-joke.

So the kid sued? That was tasteless and tacky of him, but have you seen some of those clips? I'd be getting a little pissy too.

"dance like no one's watching"

I'm not familiar with this, could you elaborate?

"Work like you don't need money,
Love Like you've never been hurt,
And dance like no one's watching."

Oh, heavens, no. That aphorism is courtesy of Satchel Paige or, at least, it is commonly attributed to him.
