Pretty Wicket


Doing a search for Ewoks (yeah, I know) and I came across this amazing site. The things people do to dogs.

But this is nothing compared to yesterday's cryptozoology conversation and resultant trip to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization website. I have a coworker that is fascinated with this stuff. I have a hard time believing that enough people are worked up about Sasquatch to warrant monthly public expeditions across the country, but it happens.

The Comprehensive Field Database didn't show anything really exciting happening in Vermont (go figure), but I must say the 911 call from Washington State's Kitsap Peninsula in the 1990's is pretty crazy. It creeps me out actually.

    The Ewok house is so cool.

    I once saw an ewok with my uncle. My uncle at first thought it was a baby sasquatch, or a budding young Bigfoot but only somebody unfamiliar with stars wars would believe such foolishness. We saw him in the northern reaches of the north most area of Washington State near the Canadian border. My uncle and I had been tracking the small guy (ewoks stand only a meter high) for 30-40 miles hoping that he would tire and we could capture him in an old potato sack we had left over from our exploits in Idaho, any how I had extensive knowledge of these little fellas from my past years of studying Endor the gas giant planet. Ewoks are sentient furred bipeds native to the forest moon of Endor (how they reached earth is mindboggling given that they don't like space travel or know how to fly spaceships)...this guy looked unarmed from a distance which is uncommon because Ewoks typically have a spear, sling, and/or knife. There was no sign of a hang glider, battle wagon, and/or bordok which are common forms of ewok transportation. I knew to be careful because Ewoks can display cannibalistic behavior (remember they almost cooked Solo, Leia, and Luke until C3PO bailed them out). We finally drew near to the ewok and welcomed him (I know Ewokese) I yelled to him Goopa! (Hello) which the furry guy curtly replied to with a "Dengar!" (Attack) I was frightened and looked for help from my uncle but realized that he must have run away long ago because there was no sight of him. Thinking on my feet I quickly yelled "Beech wawa!" (ohh my goodness!). The furry guy realized my proficiancy in Ewokese and I offered him a peace offering (a bit of my left over beef jerky from the night before). He accepted and as the ewok enjoyed the delicious goodness that was the teriaki jerky he yelled "Chak Coatee!" (Okay Celebrate!). We jumped into his bordok and we rolled to his hidden ewok village in the sky. Man those ewoks can be sooo cool.

    Who would want to fly around on an ewok glider? Those things must be really economical to build.

    It goes to show you that if you mention any aspect of Star Wars in a post you will get comments as a result. Amazing.

    Is it true that Mark Hamilton is really a porn star?

    Don't be foolish. First its Mark Hammill not Hamilton and he is Luke Skywaker and he is a Jedi Knight. He would cut you so fast if he heard you speak such blasphemy. I hope you are skilled the lightsaber punk...
