Welcome to Planet Flavor

You work hard all day, busting your ass to pay the bills, and afterwards you just want to kick back with an ice-cold glass of bluish milk and a couple of death sticks. What business of anyone else's is it what you choose to put in your own body? And of course those holier-than-thou Jedi don't have any problem with "substance abuse" when the substance in question is coffeine.

Of the Coruscant Sleazebagganos?

I do question the marketing strategies, both of naming the product after one of its more unfortunate side effects and of choosing salesmen with names like "Sleazebaggano" (who trusts drugs from an i-tal?). But maybe they are trying some sort of truth-in-advertising thing, a la

My grandfather smoked three packs a day, and lived to be 113.

Anyway, I think we all appreciate the inclusion of a seamy underbelly that is not related to Ultimate Galactic Evil. The Star Wars universe could use more minor criminality.

Are these ironically Awesome Moments or what? If so, then I think Super Kung-Fu Jump Yoda needs to go back on the list.

I cried during that scene. I cried and I bled.

I think I blocked most of the movie from my mind

yup by tps12 (2.00 / 0) #4 Wed Jun 01, 2005 at 05:11:52 AM EST
I had too. That's why, last time I saw the movie, I kept notes, so I could remind everyone about all the Awesome Elements they'd forgotten.

I haven't forgotten a thing.
