The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

Ok, I can't take it anymore. Now I'm gonna play the race card. AND the birther card. Enough is enough.

I say if this guy can't prove to us who he is, and what he is, and where he's from, he has no business running the Jedi Council or the Federation.

Here's all I can find on him: "Yoda's race has never been stated in any media, canonical or otherwise, and he is merely stated to be of a "species unknown" by the Star Wars Databank. Yoda often speaks in Object Subject Verb word order." — Wikipedia

Personally I think he's a Hobbit. He looks like a hobbit, he lives in a hobbit like house, and he talks like a hobbit (especially like Gollum.) And he goes on these impossible missions to save the world and stuff. So you know what, if it looks like a duck, acts like a duck and quacks like a duck... it's a hobbit. A Jedi hobbit maybe, but a hobbit's a hobbit, am I right?

does a one-legged duck swim in a circle? or perhaps i should rephrase the question: does a one-legged duck in a circle swim?

I want the dancing baby back.

Bill Fleming said...

I'm workin' on it, I'm workin' on it. I can't figure out how to get that on here, Taunia.
I think its locked in to the guys FB page.

Taunia Adams said...

Btw, I am likely the only person on the planet to have never seen one minute of any part of the Star Wars trilogy.

That's another reason why I want the dancing baby.

Can you dig it?

Bill Fleming said...

Ok, I'm sorry to have to do this Taunia, but if you're going to keep posting here under your real name, I'm going to have to see, at a minimum, proof of purchase of at least the first Star Wars movie rental, as well as your J.R.R. Tolkien credentials. One book will suffice.
Extra credit for the Silmarillion.

Or, lacking these, a note from your mom or an uncle
or something.

I am not posting under my real name.

And I still haven't seen Star Wars.

Bill Fleming said...

Anonymous, have you met Taunia Adams? Maybe you two could rent the video and watch it together on line. I'll buy the popcorn.

And may the Force be with you both.

Hey Bill, should we change this to a matchmaking blog...

Matrimony Acrimony?

The Cupid Assemblage?

A Horny Gathering?

Bill Fleming said...

Umm... probably not Mike. All my attempts at matchmaking have been miserable flops.

Besides, I'm pretty sure in this instance, Anonymous and Taunia are the same person, and that she (Taunia) is just showing me how firm her resolve is to resist the culture of Star Wars mania.

Can't really say as I blame her. Those last three "Prequels" were real stinkers.

Mainly, I was just hoping to get confirmation on my theory that Yoda is a hobbit, but it looks like nobody's buying it.

Oh well, another perfectly good crackpot conspiracy theory down the drain.

Sorry Taunia. You can have your posting privileges back (if you want them.) I surrender.

Bill: I have considered your contention that Yoda is a hobbit...but he appears to be missing two of the most defining characteristics of that species....furry feet and a voracious appetite. I don't recall him once calling a halt to training to partake in "elevensies"

Bill Fleming said...

Well, JacqueJ, those are good points. The only counter I have is, maybe it's because he's a Jedi hobbit, and that's made him clean up his act a little?

A true sign of being Catholic...

When someone says "May the Force be with you" in Star Wars, you automatically respond "And also with you"... or now "And with your soul". (Guilty, here)

Hey, we're not crazy, we're just Catholic! :)
