We need to have a really really large public works project that gets destroyed so we need to build another?!

The article is from Zero Hedge, but there was nothing about how the imminent global meltdown will lead us to crack open each others' skulls and feast on the goo inside.

It might be an imposter site.

You one day wake up and see something orbiting your planet called 'The Death Star' and you're not at all concerned about what could happen???

expanded universe has fett use a thermal detonator to kill the sarlaac and climb out. the gastric juices melt his armor and some of his flesh. he's found/rescued by dengar (the bounty hunter with the towel on his head in empire stikes back). he eventually becomes mandalor.

Funny, as part of the U. S. economy, I would be sure Metal Bikini Leia would be the porn sector.

Technically, there's no evidence Bib Fortuna was aboard the sail barge at the Sarlacc battle. And with expanded universe making Fett un-die, I guess it means that there are always going to be rich pricks trying to influence things.

After a quick check of wookiepedia, it seems that shortly after Jabba died, Bib's brain was removed by some monks and placed inside a spider droid. Later on he had it removed and put into some other body, and took over at least part of Jabba's criminal enterprises.

It's EU. It wasn't in film. In some circles, it doesn't count.

Bobba Fett as MIC makes no sense at all (Fett is a merc, not a master), and Salacious Crumb acts is a jester which is accurate enough for the media, but he doesn't entertain and distract Leia, so the relationships don't match up. This thing is pretty lazy.

Make Bobba "the State", change Jabba to "Banks", and change Bib Fortuna into some category of institutional investors (self-important weak minded fools) and maybe you have something.
