May the Profit Be With You

george lucas is godmilking star warsIn the beginning there was George Lucas, and on the day of the first film he created the Stars and the Wars, and it was good.

And on the day of the second film George Lucas separated the fan-boy from his money, and it was good, too.

And on the day of the third film George Lucas breathed life into the nostrils of the Ewok, and it was all downhill from there. And darkness fell upon the theatres of the Earth for one score year and six.

milking star warsPardon me for being a bit cynical about this whole "Star Wars 3D" thing but I guarantee you that one day we will all recall this shameless display of avarice with the same gut-punch of embarrassment that accompanied the release of the Ethyl Merman Disco Album.

Where does it all end?

First there was the original Star Wars, and it was mind-boggling. Then came the sequels, then the Special Editions, then the prequels, the cartoons, and now the 3D versions. At some point Lucas will probably screen a set of prints that have been personally drawn through his butt cheeks, and the fan-boys will go wild.

And then, finally, at some point, Lucas or his heirs will release to theatres all-new, uncut prints of the original movie.

Better reserve your place in line now, 'cause here we go again.

Note 1: The church can no longer control you with its message. That's why they want the government to force you to do it their way.

Note 2: If Republicans can legislate that every human egg is a human being then Democrats can make every sperm sacred... to make a point.

Note 3: Dear Ronald Reagan: Thanks for wrecking America.

Note 4: Missouri teen slaughters her neighbor, laughs about it, then heads for church.

Note 5: Teen pregnancy rates are at all-time lows. Thanks to our younger citizen's careful attention to contraception.

Republican Job Creation Update

republican job creation2-10-2012: House Republican's are watering down the insider trading bill so that Democrats will vote against it. Thus, come November, our GOP pals can say that Democrats are actually for insider trading. What more could we expect from these useless conservative sleazeballs?

Fan-boy 1: Hey! Have you heard they're re-releasing the Star Wars: The Phantom Menace in 3D?

Fan-boy 2: You mean that it's been re-written to have believable characters and a thoughtful plot, providing a whole new dimension of entertainment?

Fan-boy 1: No. It means it’s been strategically troweled with a gimmicky layer of optical gingerbread in order to squeeze another cult-fueled buck out of a dependably uncritical, novelty-crazed fan-base.

Fan-boy 2: Yay!
