That rascally old pooh bear is trying to get his snout into  the US's honeypot.

In a better timeline "The Jaunty Tunes Of Blue Elephant Creatures" would have been a Yes album.

Max Rebo played at Jabba's Palace, not Mos Eisley.

Mos Eisley which was Lady Valarian's turf.  Jabba's crew avoided it.

Or the alcohol.

... so all they have is the scum and villainy without the music or drinks to get you through it.

I remember there was speculation that Max Rebo

Actually the tunes were over at  Chalmun's Cantina not the Mos Eisley Spaceport. I'm not understanding the headline.

In a cantina that's probably FULL of bounty hunters.

After sifting through the overwritten remaining blocks of Luke's home directory, Luke and PDP-1 sped away from /owen/lars, across the surface of the Winchester riding Luke's flying read/write head. PDP-1 had Luke stop at the edge of the cylinder overlooking /usr/spool/uucp.
"Unix-to-Unix Copy Program," said PDP-1. "You will never find a more wretched hive of bugs and flamers. We must be cautious."
As our heroes' process entered /usr/spool/news, it was met by a newsgroup of Administrative protection bits.
"State your UID," commanded their parent process.
"We're running under /usr/guest," said Luke. "This is our first time on this system."
"Can I see some temporary privileges, please?"
"Uh..."
"This is not the process you are looking for," piped in PDP-1, using an obscure bug to momentarily set his effective UID to root. "We can go about our business."
"This isn't the process we want. You are free to go about your business. MOV along!"
PDP-1 and Luke made their way through a long and tortuous nodelist (cwruecmp!decvax!ucbvax!harpo!ihnss!ihnsc!ihnss!ihps3!stolaf) to a dangerous netnode frequented by hackers, and seldom polled by Administrative Multiplexers. As Luke stepped up to the bus, PDP-1 went in search of a likely file descriptor. Luke had never seen such a collection of weird and exotic device drivers. Long ones, short ones, ones with stacks, EBCDIC converters, and direct binary interfaces all were drinking data at the bus.
"#@{ *&^%^$$#@ ":><," transmitted a particularly unstructured piece of code.
"He doesn't like you," decoded his coroutine.
"Sorry," replied Luke, beginning to backup his partitions.
"I don't like you either. I am queued for deletion on 12 systems."
"I'll be careful."
"You'll be reallocated!" concatenated the coroutine.
"This little routine isn't worth the overhead," said PDP-1 Kenobi, overlaying into Luke's address space.
"@$%&(&^%&$$@$#@$AV^$gfdfRW$#@!" encoded the first coroutine as it attempted to overload PDP-1's input overvoltage protection. With a unary stroke of his bytesaber, Kenobi unlinked the offensive code.

I took it as more a shot at MBS and Xi. Pretty sure just the two of them in one room qualifies as the referenced hive. Someone could disagree, in fact if you live under either of those regimes I'd highly farking recommend it.

Well, if you've got two hornets, even if they're the meanest, most assholey hornets around, is it really a hive? Don't you need more?

If only the middle line were "a more fully wretched hive" (or similar), then that famous quote could've been a haiku.

I was going to say this and be insufferable about it but I see I've been beat to the punch
