    I’m sorry, it must be I’m not as mentally nimble as I was at 70 ? could some more “with it” youngster please take pity on me and please explain what the point is the author’s trying to make by posting 2 photos of an imaginary, minor character from a 1970s movie (i.e., Star Wars™) side by side? I just don’t see how Jabba-The-Hutt has any relevance to the political/social/cultural situation we’re in!

    Is the point that Jabba is an example of a complete CGI creation, one that has no existence independent of its author ? just like the current pResident.

    I thought at first I was on to something with that thought… perhaps some type of egregious visual change was made to Mr.Hutt when what’s-his-name re-edited the series the umpteenth time to get people to buy the “super-special fantastic Bigger-Explosion-Effects-than-before 32DVD Mostly Complete Set”.

    When I went to get my reading glasses to confirm it, I found our new puppy had gotten at them, chewing them up… So I just see the two slightly out-of-focus. What is the difference?

    Somewhere in the space-time continuum, Jabba The Hut is very very angry at this comparison……

    Jabba wasn’t CGI, he was a puppet. I thnk it took 3 guys to make him work.

    As for the picture Smitty is trying to convey, I’m not so sure. Susan Sarandon wasn’t a bad looking dame in her prime, and isn’t to hard on the eyes now, but she sure is fat as jabba mentally. perhaps that’s what Smitty is trying to get across.

    Smitty has been known to be a tad mischievous from time to time.

    Prolly. Jabba was a cunning crook. I don’t know that Sarandon is cunning at anything.

    I won’t comment on her maybe being a cunning linguist.  I merely point out the option of doing so.

     She was once a cunning stunt, though.

    Jabba looks pretty good – did he have work done?

    Oh, my.

    I feel very foolish…
    because, you see, I was serious about thinking both photos were of Jabba. Our puppy really did chew up my reading glasses… so everything’s somewhat fuzzy & unfocused.

    The consolation for my embarrassment is while I mistook both to be of Jabba, at least I’m not appearing on thousands of screens with Susan’s face…

    Thank you for correcting me about CGI vs puppet. I didn’t know.

    I don’t see that it substantively alters my comment about the current pResident… except to wonder aloud how many people are needed to provide life-like animation of Mr. Obammbie…

     Not a boob job or face lift.  Maybe a tummy tuck?

    Hut  |  Slut?  Is that the mischief you were going for?  And if anyone thinks I’m just being mean, you need to do the Time Warp again.
