Why would you post these???

Because they're funny, Captain Gideon. wink

‘Twas the very first time
I'd seen Episode One
I was shaking my head
"George what have you done?"

There was a brave Padawan
"So that's the young Ben!"
And the bold Jedi Master
His name Qui Gon Jinn

It started with promise
"To Naboo we must flee"
The droids firing wildly
As they mowed down the trees

Then upon whom should our stalwart heroes arrive?
But a nightmarish creature, all C G and I.

His skin was all slimy
He was gangly in stride
Floppy ears on his head
And polyps for eyes.

His shape made no sense
He looked like a freak
It couldn't be worse
Then he started to speak

Though a man of the world
I'm not PC or such
But now I was thinking
"This is far, far too much!"

For the next hour and one half
When I should have been thrilled
All that came to my mind
Was the tune from Benny Hill

There is lighthearted sci fi
There is comic relief
But this was Jerry Lewis in space
With lightsabers – "Good grief!"

Lucas thought he was clever
"He's that way by design!"
I might have agreed
If I was still of age nine

The ones who were laughing
While so many were mad
Were all those damn Ewoks
"Now we don't look all that bad!"

The last one is the best. Vader sleeping with a Star Wars blanket, hilarious.

Captain Gideon01 Jun 2017 10:11 a.m. PST

BLACKSTAR not all of them were funny IMHO.

But then my humor is different than other people.

I've a sneaking suspicion yours is very,very,dry.

Captain Gideon01 Jun 2017 11:58 a.m. PST

Hafen you have no idea so don't try and figure it out.

One other thing if you met me you would find that I'm a pretty good person,so don't just base things on what you read here.

I'm much better/easier talking to someone face to face or on the phone to get my point across,writing is my weak point so there are times when it doesn't come out the way I intended.

Keep that in mind and don't judge me too quickly.

Hafen von Schlockenberg Supporting Member of TMP01 Jun 2017 12:06 p.m. PST

Fair point,and I don't want to judge anyone.

Apologies if it sounded that way.

Captain Gideon01 Jun 2017 12:17 p.m. PST

Accepted Hafen.

Ghostrunner – If that's your work, you should be very proud of yourself (or very ashamed, I'm not sure which). Thanks for the chuckle.

Ghostrunner01 Jun 2017 1:26 p.m. PST

Yep, product of my own limited mind.

I'll be proud, my wife is the ashamed one.

Glad you liked it.

I couldn't be bothered to follow the links.
Jar Jar Binks is the prime example of why Episodes 1-3 suck.
That and the guy who plays Anakin. He's more obnoxious than Harry Potter.

But anyway…..
The last two movies, particularly Rogue One, show what can be done when you rip control away from Lucas.

Captain Gideon02 Jun 2017 6:49 a.m. PST

Winston Smith I disagree with you regarding Jar Jar Binks and let's leave it at that.

Ghostrunner02 Jun 2017 6:52 a.m. PST

Never saw this one before:

'Final fate' of jar-Jar?

Maybe the clown in the novel was just an imposter?

Marc the plastics fan Inactive Member02 Jun 2017 12:32 p.m. PST

Love the Han Solo splice from Airforce One. Brilliant

Personal logo Doctor X Supporting Member of TMP03 Jun 2017 10:29 p.m. PST

Ghostrunner, that was one of the funniest things I've seen on posted TMP ever.

Kudos to you good sir!

billthecat05 Jun 2017 8:01 a.m. PST

I too despise Binks and the prequels…. But I still prefer either in comparison too the truly hideous new/Disney movies.
Ghost runner: fantastic!

Captain Gideon05 Jun 2017 8:38 a.m. PST

Because of the Prequels that I came up with 2 games that I run at local gaming conventions.

The first one is Battle of Grassy Plains where there's over 300 Gungan's(including JAR JAR BINKS)against 100's of Battledroids,Destroyer Droids,Staps etc,I've been running it since 2009.

The other game is Geonosis Arena Battle where you have 50 plus Jedi against many Battledroids.

All the figures(except for custom figures)are from Wizards of the Coast.

And the people who take part in the games have a GREAT time.

These movies inspired me to do these games.

Doctor X/billthecat-

Glad you liked it.

The silliness of the subject matter lends itself well to the Dr Seuss type treatment.
