The 100-day, 100-Question Great Star Wars Blogathon, Question 31

Okay, so I messed up with a typo on the Caller Number 10 points yesterday, and Andrew Leon wisely took advantage of that loophole. Forget the Academy, Andrew. Law school needs you.

But all of you people who have been waiting to enter, or trying to catch Andrew, here is your chance! Thanks to the genius of The Suddenly Affable Bulldog, we have, coming tomorrow,

The WHAMMY! Question!. The specific rules are HERE, but for today's purposes, what you need to know is that if you WANT to answer The WHAMMY! Question, then by the time I post it (tomorrow, sometime) you have to have left a comment on THIS POST saying how many of your points you want to wager.

You can wager up to the total points you have -- and if you have less than 100 points, you can wager 100 points. It's like Final Jeopardy! only I never had an Alex Trebek moustache.

So when you comment today, you'll get a drawing in the weekly prize, and be wagering. Don't want to risk a WHAMMY!? Don't wager any points.

Want to find out how many points you have? Click here for the standings.

And today's question, worth 30 points.

What's the first thing Princess Leia says directly to Luke Skywalker when they first meet as adults?

Commenter number 2 gets the 10 point bonus, if they're not also commenter 1. (Today's lack of typos brought to you by my not being exhausted after a long day at the office.)

Aren't you a little short for a storm trooper?

Andrew Leon said...

Wait... he didn't answer anything about wookies. Something... is... wrong.

I need to fix this:
Here's a link -just- for Rusty (but everyone else can look, too):

I think what Rusty said translates to "Wookies" in Galactic.

REMEMBER! If you want to WHAMMY! question tomorrow, you've got to wager points today!

I'm afraid to Whammy, but what the heck! I'm not going to win, anyway, so it's all about the fun, right? :) I only have 105 points, so let's go for 105 points.

Damn me for sleeping in on Saturday! I'll wager 550 points tomorrow. I like to live dangerously.

Andrew Leon said...

You know, I liked it much better when I thought your thing yesterday with the bonus caller was on purpose. I thought you were up to your old tricks again. Not that I really know what your old tricks are, but I bet you have some stashed away somewhere, and I thought that was one of them.

Hmmm... knowing that this whole whammy thing is aimed at me makes me scared that that whammy already has my number. Not that I really think you'd do that, but my brain doesn't always win this contests of rationality.
I suppose I'll wager...
Okay, I'll wager 400 points.

"It's a trap!"

Rusty Webb said...

I feel unbeatable now. I submit eleventy-bajillion points for the next round of questions.

Wait, how many points was this question worth? Okay, scratch that.

293 points. Because I hope I have that many.

Andrew Leon said...

See... it is a trap. He's tricked us all into wagering points and isn't going to post the new question until 11:59. Only Grumpy will be able to answer before midnight, at that point, and the rest of us will lose our points.
