The 100-day, 100-Question Great Star Wars Blogathon, Question 24

Don't forget the Star Wars Blogathon Blogfest Biweekly Writing Challenge! Details here.

New to this? Don't fret: Just answer the question and start getting points, check back often, and have your lawyer read these official rules before you sue me. And those rules tell all the way you can score points.


Next week promises to be more open for blogging, so maybe I'll get back to more expansive posts. I know how much everybody loves posts of 32,000 words about college basketball, and I'd hate to leave the vast expanses of words out there unmined and laying fallow.

But for now, it's Friday, I'm still tired, and I also took Mr Bunches and Mr F to the park, the highlight of which was Mr Bunches running up to me with his hands cupped saying "It's an ant!" and when I held out my hand, he put an ant in it.

I don't know what I expected.

Nothing much to do with Star Wars, except that ants are a kind of somethingthropod, which Andrew Leon maintains is the actual thing that kouhouns are. So I went to the Wookiepedia for this:

Kouhuns were vermiform arthropods with segmented bodies, roughly thirty centimeters long, from the jungle world of Indoumodo. Small, silent, and fast, kouhuns were capable of delivering a fatal and quick-acting neurotoxin through their bite, as well as a nonfatal but nonetheless painful sting from their tails. Kouhuns were white in color, though they also existed in reddish-brown and black varieties.
Since "vermiform" means "in the shape of a worm," I'm going to give the points to Grumpy. Let the controversy begin! (Either Grumpy or Andrew can hire me to sue the other for those points.)

Today's question: worth 37 points:

What was Order 66?

Caller #3 gets 10 points, if they're not commenter number 2.

Also: I haven't yet awarded anyone's blogfest points except Rusty's; I'll do that when I post links. But, as always, if you think you're entitled to points you don't see reflected, let me know. I'm only (98.5%) human, you know.

The order to kill all the Jedi.

Hmm... lots of things are in the shape of a worm and, yet, are not worms.
I'll just say this:
Worms have no skeletal system. Artropods do.
The things in AotC definitely have a skeletal system.

Dammit. Were there Wookie Jedi? It could have been related to Wookies. I don't know, a quarter way through this thing and I'm getting tired of Wookies. It's only worked out for me once. Maybe I need a new thing. Has Ewoks been the answer to anything year.

There was at least one Wookie Jedi: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Tyvokka
