Star Wars Trilogy according to someone who has never seen them

I had a soccer game tonight with our church team, RPC United, drank three diet cokes upon my return home and am wide awake. I'm tired, but too much caffeine has given me the heart rate of a gerbil.

This is all an excuse for why I am posting this clip...I think it will still be funny in the morning but I'm not sure.

Pretty darn good portrayal! Boy did this snipit bring back some fond memories! I remember, back at it’s first release, May of 1977, our youngest Son Tate had just turned 4, now 32 years later, he is still a huge Star Wars nut!
We had gone to see a Disney movie but providentially, (Pastor, can I use that word here?) it was sold out. So not knowing one thing about this sleeper, new release, we got in the next line to see the unknown epic of all movies, the Star Wars Adventure! Tate was scared to death, yet at the same time, memorized beyond imagination! He couldn’t stop talking about it, and for several nights, he wouldn’t go to bed. Never forget soon after the first of many showings, one morning, I went to Tate’s room to wake him up for school and his radio alarm clock was playing that song from the bar scene, where the Cantina alien, the weird skiny dude with the huge head was playing the flute. Tate was still ¾ asleep, yet with eyes closed and hands clasped together, like he was holding a flute, he was swaying his head back and forth, playing his imaginary flute to the music. What JOY! And I still laugh when I think about those treasured moments in time! Tate, still to this day is a huge fan, and continues to hold high his prized original Star Wars action figures!

See what happens when you depend upon "Spell Check"! “But how do it know?” The word was mesmerized not memorized?!

Great, my wife almost went into early labor watching this...

I can only imagine how much funnier this was at 1:22 AM with a gerbil-like heart rate. Thanks for sharing!
