Heebeedee funnee happidee horbdee postee!

OK, if you got that, we’re good. If not, here’s a quick primer:

…I don’t know about you, but I feel much better.


Seriously, the replenishment people came through like champs, the leggings are on their way, and all’s right with my little world once again. Of course, the warehouse people could still take issue with my polybags, but I have a backup plan. To wit: I care nothing for such petty matters as employment, for I have this day uncovered the GREATEST POP-CULTURE MASHUP EVER IN THE HISTORY OF STUFF.

Hint: Star Wars: Episode IV was filmed partly in England, yeah? And the Muppet Show was also filmed in England, right around the time the ST phenomenon was peaking…

Oh yes, my friends, they did. Luke, the droids, Chewbacca, and the Princess Leia… sort of. That’s where the Pigs in Space crossover comes in.

Why there hasn’t already been an Internet shrine erected to this half-hour of film, I have no idea. To think, all those poor souls out there scarred for life by the Holiday Special… perchance I can bring a new hope into their trembling lives. (‘New hope’, see what I did there? Just made that up now. Dang, I’m good.)


Mark Hamill gargles Gershwin! Hey, it made as much sense as anything else in his career at this point…

Luke and the droids commandeer the USS SwineTrek… and we learn where Mel Brooks got the inspiration for Dark Helmet.create counter

    It is wonderful, isn’t it? 🙂 The way they all just throw themselves into it – not just Mark Hamill (although the ‘impersonations’ bit is retroactively hilarious) but Anthony Daniels. Dude is having way more fun than droid armour should allow.

    Glad I could help brighten your day, too. 🙂

    The best part is, there’s lots more where that came from — check out the absolutely amazing Swedish Chef YouTube channel . There are days when I just wuv the Internet so much.
