    TK-124: You WILL NOT make any more sucky ass movies or I will blast a hole in your back the size of a grapefruit. If you know what is good for you and your family you will leave the writing and directing to someone who is competent.

  9. Mark says:

    Uh, I thought we were all going to dress up for this. Thanks a lot, jackass.

  10. FreakyBoy says:

    At a press conference today, George Lucas sipped the warm blood of an inept Industrial Light & Magic intern and announced he is dispatching his imperial storm troopers Halloween night to patrol the streets and forcibly exact royalties from children wearing non-licensed Star War costumes. He did exempt children in homemade Jar Jar Binks costumes from fees and added that someday, the misunderstood amphibian would be one of his most loved creations.

    “Sometimes,” Lucas says, “you have to go to war with the army you’ve got.” Boots on the Ground — JarJar’s understudy — had not informed him that his army was an Army of Three and a Gun of One.

    “There’s nothing to see here. He’s not the multi-billionaire ruiner of now-grown kids dreams aching for the fruition of a fondly remembered series. He can go.”

  17. “This is the perfect cover,” said Lucas. “I travel with these (cough) ‘storm troopers’ and everyone thinks I’m promoting my movies. Little do they know that under the costume they are really chorus girls. It’s perfect!”

  18. yetanotherjohn says:

    Cue imperial theme music,

    President Bush sent his new supreme court nominee to capital hill today with more than just words. In an effort to ensure that nothing derails this nomination, new handlers accompanied the nominee. When faced with any tough questions, the nominee would reply “these aren’t the drones you are looking for” and the handlers would quickly move the questioner out of the room.
