Never mind. IIRC a couple of months ago I didn't get the joke.

Crap.

That's almost as bad as the game where you speak a word, using an exaggerated lisp, and the others try to guess whether you're referring to a city in Western Australia or a ladies' handbag.

And while you are waiting for your gizmo to arrive, you can while away the hours by reading through the Darths and Droids archives.

Resisting temptation to link to the Holiday Special...

Still resisting...

Resisted (close call, but it's just too horrific to subject others to).

- this was a countdown on the StarWars site until 2pm UDT on the 4th May. At 2PM the site crashed because "billions of fans hit refresh at the same time". Have a look at it and imagine the disappointment shared by SW fans across the globe as they found out it was about something they ALREADY KNEW ABOUT. ;-)
