ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Photoshopper unknown. Via Brandon Neely.
Yes! Star Wars explains so much: sociology, psychology, religion. Now while taking to the streets has been great, now is the time to work on replacing the corrupt leaders. http://OccupyGovernment.org invites voters to pledge to elect those who serve our interests and not those of the corporations. Not only that, but there’s a web platform for candidates to get elected without corporate money. Check it out.
This meme would appear to have jumped the proverbial shark. (Or equivalent Star Wars universe beastie.)
Vaulted the Dianoga?
Or, for a more pertinent idiom akin to shark jumping, shall we say the meme has “won the podrace”?
Or maybe just “supplanted Lapti Nek.”
“Gone to Endor”?
“Celebrated Life Day on Kashyyyk”?
Or, for the real sourpusses out there, maybe it’s just “gone to Toshi Station to pick up some power converters.”
That would be the Sando Aqua Monster.
“There’s always a bigger fish.”
What’s this new meme of saying all things OWS-related have jumped the shark??
Christ – Lucas has gone too far with the Blueray additions.
Thanks… for the rest of the day, I am going to be imagining Carl Rove pulling off his mask and throwing Rush Limbaugh into the Death Star Reactor core (built by Haliburton).
Rove of course gets a nasty hernia.
I always saw Rush as more of a Jabba myself, living off the underbelly of the Empire. Cheney is def. the Emperor.
Epic.. absolutely epic.
Leia = princess = 1%.
Seriously tho, there’s an elected Queen Amidala, and Leia doesn’t act as royal as Han accuses her of, but you can tell by their titles that Lucas kinda plays on our tendency to idealize monarchs.
But what about the huge government subsidies to corporate moisture farms?
Epic Awesomeness. Ok Boingers, I’m giving you the chance to be the first to make your submissions . . . http://www.occupymycat.com
My brother just asked, “How does one join an extinct cult?”
It has to be in your blood, man.
A family tradition?
Well, there’s nobody to exclude you from membership.
That’s so dumb. You just go back in time, man.
I find your lack of demands disturbing.
He was ‘Forced” into it!
He owns a flying car and a T-16 aircraft, his mother is a queen, his Dad is a knight and the right hand man of the emperor of the universe. How much more 1% can you get?
Skywalker may be part of the 99%, but he’s also about 1% machine.
This deal keeps getting worse all the time!
I might be picking nits, but it’s Photoshopper Unknown because it wasn’t photoshopped, it was GIMPed. FOSS FTW.
That’s no Photoshop…
Looks like someone has a huge TV and a copy of the Star Wars blu-ray, paused on this frame, and held up a print-out in front of it – and then added digital noise to make it blend together.
+penguinchris Not quite. It’s a screencap from the DVD combined with a picture of my hand holding the printout. You’re right about the digital noise, but I only had to add it to the screencap as the printout pic was already taken with a webcam quality camera. You’re also right about the lack of photoshop, as stated earlier, I used GIMP.
Yay, thanks for identifying yourself as the artist. Got a link we can source this image to? It’s all over teh intertubes with no artist credit, which makes me sad.
Inherited off-the-charts midi-chlorian count from his dad. Luke is the 1%
I’m just surprised to see that they used full justification for the text margins back then.
And I’m glad to see that the fact that “jumping the shark” has jumped the shark is being discussed in this thread.
Darth Maul’s response to Luke:
Funny since the Rebellion was started by members of the 1% who wanted more power and were pissed that the lost it when Palaptine declared himself king of everything.
Oh and never mind what happened in the books, even though they are considered cannon and would actually show that Luke was a tool for the 1%.
