It's a shame Wookiees and babelfish don't exist in the same universe.

Delightful. Thanks for this.

A dog walks into a telegraph office, takes a slip, goes to the side counter to fill it out. He takes several minutes, pausing several times, deep in thought.

When he's done, he brings his slip up to the clerk, who gives it a quick read. It says, "Woof woof woof woof woof woof woof woof woof."

The clerk says, "You know, are telegrams start with a flat fee for ten words, so you can add another 'woof' in there for free."

To which the dog replies, "But then it wouldn't make any sense!"

"To meet Wookieepedia's quality standards, this article may require cleanup."

Too true. There's no need for that much detail on the different schools of lightsaber technique.

I'm sure it's fine for general information, but on the one topic of that I have some expertise on, Wwauaaomuuoaauuwauu, I found several errors of fact and omission which I tried to correct, but there is an overzealous administrator that keeps reverting the changes because I can't cite my own 'original research.'

I don't know how many wookiepedia editors have spent any time on Kashyyyk, but I can assure you that if you said that "Rvauuuaraouaua haooooawoaaa rouuooaarrooaoaa rauoauhaooaarh raaa." within earshot of any haaoawoiiuuw you'd be laughed out of the noaauawaaaoou.
