The Best Of Everything 100-day 100-question Star Wars Blogathon, Question 2


Yesterday's answer was C: Black Two; Andrew Leon gets the points.

As the "Wookiepedia" says:

"Mauler" Mithel, designated DS-61-2, was a Human TIE pilot specially trained to be Darth Vader's left wingman as a member of Vader's Black Squadron. He flew the TIE/ln starfighter designated Black 2 during the Battle of Yavin.

Remember, I did not make any of this up.

This comes from a book.

That someone got paid to write.

Think about that as you craft whatever blogfest post you're working on today. You could've just made up some crap about a TIE fighter pilot and gotten a billion dollars.

Also, there is probably some money to be made in a skit in which Barney from How I Met Your Mother is chosen to be Darth Vader's wingman over Mithel.

Question Two: Where did Obi Wan meet Bail Organa and Yoda after defeating Anakin Skywalker?

A: Polis Massa
B: Naboo
C: Tatooine
D: Dagobah

Believe it or not, every word in that question was English. Today's question is worth 9 points.

Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Star Wars music:




Here's the standings so far, but only Andrew Leon will care.

As always: First correct answer in the comments gets those 9 points... and the lead... but every comment is an entry in the Weekly Prize Drawing! I capitalized those letters, so you know it's a big deal.

I would say A because it was a mining colony (or something) not a planet and the others are all planets.

So A, final answer, Regis.

Andrew Leon said...

Well, bah, Grumpy beat me to it, but, yes, the answer is A.

@Grumpy: You should try that answer as a pickup line at a bar.

"Wanna know what the difference is between Polis Massa and Naboo, baby?"

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

Damnit...late to the game.

@michael: I don't know why you wouldn't still leave an answer, even if you think the person ahead of you got it right. Especially if you're going to leave a comment. Suppose Grumpy's wrong? (I'm not saying he's right.) Suppose he withdraws from contention?

I'll put you down for "E."
