Sith Romney says...



I came up with this one on a caption Romney thread that can be found here:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/1002968637

I thought it was clever enough (if I do say so myself) to have its own thread. Enjoy!

1. Nice!!


Because of my username and obvious resulting appreciation for Star Wars humor, I'm naturally obligated to respond. It's funny regardless, but is that a Spaceballs reference?

2. Thanks, and no...

It's a Star Wars reference. When Luke (disguised as a stormtrooper) first meets Leia she says "Aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper?" I believe Spaceballs was referencing that scene when there was one short stormtrooper-type. I think that was the gag? Been a while since I've seen Spaceballs.

Edit: And you have to know about Rmoney's quote in Michigan about the trees being the right height to get the full joke.

3. YW

Should have been more clear . . . I got the "too short for a Stormtrooper" ref and the callback to the insane remark about the trees. I thought weaving them both into one caption was brilliant! Just thought it might have been a triple entendre as I thought there was something in Spaceballs about Stormtrooper height as well. Like you, I haven't seen it in ages. I'm fully in favor of Dark Helmet or Sith Lord Rmoney as a new nickname.

4. no prob

Yeah, I thought most would get the "trees" reference but I added it to that reply just in case some sees this thread and goes "Huh?".

Don't you think "Sith Romney" has a nice ring to it?
