The 100-day, 100-Question Great Star Wars Blogathon, Question 37

First off, before getting to the question:

The Grumpy Bulldog is dead.

Long live P.T. Dilloway.

Andrew Leon got himself 5 points today and announced a theme for something about this A To Z challenge I'm trying my hardest to ignore because do you think it's easy to do what I do? And if you know what it is I do, will you please tell me because I was under the impression that what I do is read blogs and tell dumb stories on my own blogs and disappoint Rusty because there is just not enough Star Wars trivia about Wookies and I'm sorry, man!

I've been thinking and I've decided that this A To Z Challenge is a great way to get the marks in the door and do a bait and switch to sucker them into buying my books get people into the Blogathon and also, since everyone was really cool about my first Biweekly Blogfest Writing Challenge and I'm SURE I'm going to see, like, a zillion haikus by April 8 for the second one, I'll take part in the A To Z Challenge here on the blogfest.

I believe that all I have to do is have a post a day for 26 days dealing with a letter of the alphabet? If I'm incorrect on that, screw it; what are you going to do, sic the Internet cops on me?

*checks on Wikipedia to see if there really are Internet cops*

I do what I want.

Here's today's question, which you will get 19 points for but you will first want to spread the word that THE BEST OF EVERYTHING 100-DAY 100 QUESTION STAR WARS BLOGATHON IS GOING TO ALSO INCORPORATE WHATEVER THE A TO Z THING IS! and here you are:

What was Wilhuff Tarkin's title in the Empire?

It's a doubler, of sorts: commenter 1 gets the 10 points. Oh, those random numbers!

Also, since I am doing the A To Z thing, I think it only fair to say that unless Michael Offutt comments on this blog at least once in that time, I will hold Q hostage. Not everything is dwarves and Prometheus, Mr. Offutt.

And that's my newest way to score points: I'm going to place a bounty and start luring in bloggers. The first one is Offutt: the person who gets Michael Offutt to leave a comment here and credit that person for making him do it get 500 points. And so will Michael.

Hey, if Jabba was after him and Jabba lived on Tatooine, why would Han hide out there?

Just askin'

gRAND MOFF. his first name was wilhuff?

Hey, if Jabba was after him and Jabba lived on Tatooine, why would Han hide out there?

Well, maybe he thought that was the last place they'd ever look. Kind of hiding in plain sight like the purloined letter.

Andrew Leon said...

I'm not sure if you're being serious or not.

I think, though, the idea is that Han -just- got back from this trip where he had to dump his cargo, and he's trying to not have a bounty stuck on his head. Just Greedo got to him before he got around to seeing Jabba.

Just by the way, since Grumpy is the first poster, like, 90% of the time, having the 1st caller get the bonus points is... well, I don't know what it is, but that's what it is.

Andrew Leon said...

Oh, and I'm glad you're doing A to Z... you can come be a lemming with me.

Rusty Webb said...

Head Wookie I think. Have fun on the A-Z thing. I just found out that you don't just do posts about A and Z every day. You actually have to do the letters in between too.

Here, Andrew, I found a tiny violin for you:

As I read all these answers I'm learning more about Star Wars than I ever imagined possible.

Are there points involved in promoting the blogathon on your blog, because I've got a picture and a link up that's been there for a while? (I need all the help I can get)

I'm working on my haiku - it was a busy week.

Last but not least - today is wager day, right? I think I can wager 100 points, even though I have none? If that's the case, I wager 100 points!
