Greetings, it is I, the galaxy’s best pirate captain. I had a great weekend: I gave the crew some time off to enjoy celebrating the annual orb rebirth festival of Quay. What? You don’t believe in Quay’s ability to predict the future? You must be some sort of Waru worshipper.
Anyway, back to discussing StarWars.com’s ‘This Is Madness’. In the last round, Skywalker’s astro droid beat out the Princess of Alderaan and young Boba Fett came out more than a head above his father.
But this is the key last round of the Sixteen Strikes Back. On the light side, we have Chewbacca, first mate of the Millennium Falcon, against Ahsoka Tano, Jedi pony farmer. (Even I have visited Ashoka’s pony farm!) And no disrepect to a walking carpet that could rip my arms off, but I must go with my favorite of the Jedi, Ahsoka. And you must too, or else Hondo will have you scrubbing the outside of my ship… while we’re flying!
And on the dark side, Count Dooku versus Emperor Palpatine. If Count Dooku is a major thorn in my business, I could imagine that a full Emperor could be two thorns worth of pain. So better be safe and vote Emperor Palpatine. That Chancellor fellow seemed ok, for a politician. How bad could he be as emperor?
As we move into the third round tomorrow, Obi-Wan vs Yoda: Hondo likes Obi-Wan Kenobi today. Perhaps since Obi-Wan is both a worthy ally and sometimes a decent businessman. And he’s never thrown me in jail. Sometimes not paid me for all my trouble, but it is what it is. And Darth Vader vs Jabba the Hutt. If I told you half the things I knew about Jabba the Hutt, you’d probably end up on one of his hit lists. But if I told what I think I know about Darth Vader, I’d end up on his bad side. And I like my neck the way it is. Well, I could moisturize a little more. So, Vader.
