Day 310: Salacious Crum

So Preston called me this afternoon.

Him: "Honey, I have a quick question. And I'm asking you on speakerphone so you don't have time to google it."
Me: "Um, okay. Shoot."
Him: "What's the name of Jabba the Hutt's pet?"
Me: "Salacious Crum. Who's asking?"
Him: "You are recieving a slow clap from the dental office. Lt. Chia didn't believe me when I told him my wife knows everything about Star Wars."
Me: "Just the original trilogy."
Him: "I know."
Me: "Because I don't believe in the prequels."
Him: "I know, honey."
Me: "Has Lt. Chia seen 'The People Vs. George Lucas'? Because it's really---"
Him: "You're a big nerd. Love you."

So. There's Salacious Crum. The end. And feel free to quiz me on anything regarding the original Star Wars. I promise not to google it.

I don't need to quiz you. I trust you.

Salacious used to be one of my favorite little action figures. I always fed him to the Rancor :-)

Queen 'Bina said...

What do you call Salacious Crum after Jaba's barge blows up? (I know you know!)

I'd like to go on record to say: I don't believe in the prequels either. I could never even bring myself to watch "episode 3." (Scoff) Whatever.
Although the hubbs and I like to joke that what-his-face that plays the grown up Anakin reminds us of a terribly whiney Mitch Ballard. You know what I'm sayin'?

(High pitched, manic Salacious Crum laugh)

Adam - Ha! Well, thank you. :D I loved my action figure too!! Although I was really dumb and brought it to school one day. A friend borrowed it then claimed it was "stolen". Tessa Hatfield, it's been 18 years but don't think I haven't forgotten.

RIP plastic figurine.

Robin - Dude, I can totally see that. :D Seriously, though...have you seen the People Vs. George Lucas? It's brilliant. You'd get a shiny prequel-hating kick out of it.

Haha! That is awesome... I know nothing about them, except that I had a crush on Luke Skywalker as a kid. Should I be embarassed about that?! I don't even know...
but you are awesome.

K. Marie Criddle said...

Should you be embarrassed about a crush on Luke Skywalker? Coming from a girl who once had a 6 ft. cardboard cutout of the boy Jedi in her room, NO. NOT AT ALL.

Dat hair. So swoopy.

Charles Eubanks said...

I know what you're playing at, Marie. You're trying to get someone to quote Vader and say, "Most impressive," aren't you? In fact, you probably have a little WAGER going with Preston, don't you? Well, I'm not falling for that! It would be too obvious!

Oh wait... I just did fall for it.

Ooh, you ARE good.

Mua ha ha! I have absolute power! The wager is won and I get a cupcake for dinner. Mua ha ha, mine is a chocolatey laugh!

K. Marie Criddle said...

Curses! I was trying to get someone to say "Into the garbage chute, flyboy"...I guess this wasn't the way of going about it at all. :D Thanks, Charles!!

gbulson said...

Yeah, Preston and Marie are awesome. Maybe we should call thenm?

Hahaha! My favorite line: "YOU KNEW WHAT I WAS WHEN YOU PICKED ME UP."
