Sweet Christmas, that trading card is terrifying.

AAAAAAAH! “Can’t sleep, Peter Cushing will get me.”

Here, let’s balance things out a bit:

Ah, yes, very dashing indeed. “I dashed the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.” “Why, that is quite dashing!”

Yeah, I know, not much of a post. But I did find out there’s a kesselrun.com which is, well, just a pic of the Millennium Falcon, unless there’s some kind of crazy Flash/Javascript/whatever thing also on the site that I’m not letting my browser run. And yes, “parsec” wasn’t used correctly in the original quote from the first Star Wars movie, but Wookieepedia is on it with an explanation of the helpful retcon one of the tie-in novels dropped in regarding that.

    It is, in fact, just a picture of the Millennium Falcon. Very strange.

    “The evil Grand Moff Tarkin”

    That phrase leads me to infer the existence of a Mirror/Mirror or Bizarro-like “Good Grand Moff Tarkin”.

    I think I’ll call him “God”.

    LOL @ Philip

  • John Parker says:

    Peter Cushing could do both evil AND dashing as the situation demanded. Could Harrison Ford do the same?

    That Tarkin picture looks just like my crazy chain-smoking uncle. Imagine sitting next to that exact image at family functions, and having it chit-chat with you.
    “So, what grade are you in now?”
    “You want a cigarette?”
    “No, Uncle Jerry, I’m ten years old.”
