Is it wrong that I got this and laughed at it?

My son sent him a fan letter because he loves the Indiana Jones/Star Wars movies.

He got back a form letter from Lucasfilms and a small poster.

... nothing could wipe the smile from my kid's face when he opened it. Letterhead and everything.

If I had shoop skills, I'd make a PS of Lincoln's head on Solo's body blasting Greedo.

/Yeah, that's what I'd do.
/+1 parsec on the headline.
//+4 four score and seven years to Subby

Subby, I love you. You earned your internets today good sir.

I'm glad I don't get the headline - that would mean that I was a serious nerd.

I just came here to say that George Lucas sucks.

Unless it's still 1984?

Oh, they left out the funniest part:

Lucas says that, in a contest between Luke Skywalker and Obama, our 44th president wins hands down - even without the lightsaber.

I wouldn't put money on that.

At least Obama got to meet his hero Abe Lincoln, who demanded his "f*cking bible" back.

I'm hardly a serious nerd and even I got the headline.

You're a funny guy, subby. I like you. That's why I'm going to kill you last.

I'm guessing you're not a fan of Star Trek.

"Comedy is tragedy plus time. Take Abraham Lincoln's assassination for example. Back then, it wasn't funny. But now..."

Pure excellence

First those rich Wall St. bankers and now Lucas. I'm telling you, Greedo is ruining our society.

/sorry

Good thing I'm not at work today, otherwise I'd have to explain to my co-workers why I have tears streaming down my face from laughter.

/+1 subby!
