Happy "Life Day" To All

Some of you folks will remember this: The Star Wars Holiday Special. The rest of you will ask "WTF?".

Broadcast only one time at Christmas in 1978, this feature was once thought to have been destroyed by George Lucas. But many Bothan spies lost their lives to smuggle VHS copies out of Skywalker Ranch so that capitalist insurgents could sell them on eBay.

For those too young to have seen it, I recommend it for the sheer awfulness of this production.

Check out the intro here:

Who knew Chewbacca had a wife, a son who looked like a hairy Gary Coleman and a father who liked to watch holographic space porn?

And check out the guest star list: Bea Arthur, Art Carney, Diahann Carroll, Harvey Korman and...the Jefferson Starship? Oh yeah. It's that bad.

It's the kind of thing that almost makes you appreciate the crap they have on TV around the holidays these days. If you can get your hands on a copy, the vintage commercial breaks alone are worth the cost of shipping.

In The Spirit Of The Holidays

One of my all-time favorite "South Park" moments. A big thank you to Steve the Llamabutcher for finding it.

Merry F@$#ING Christmas, y'all!

"There's No Need To Fight Evil When Appeasement Will Do Just Fine."

David Zucker comes up with another classic - comparing James Baker to Neville Chamberlain. The whole negotiation bit with Ahmadinejad would be hilarious if it weren't so damn serious.
