W is for "Whoa, nelly, I've got a lot of work to do" (A To Z, Star Wars Blogathon)

And so today you only get a quick question, plus that POP!Best I posted today.  Plus some thoughts on how money in politics sometimes literally means money in politics, but that's on another blog.

So here's question 60, worth 30 points:  What type of ship smashed into the Executor, sending that Star Destroyer crashing into the Death Star?

Commenter number 5 gets 10 extra points.  Last commenter gets 10 extra points.  In response to Andrew's questions from yesterday about points: I invoke my Fifth Amendment right to counsel, and, for good measure, my Third Amendment right to have no troops quartered in my house.

And in response to PT Dilloway's comment? U is also for Whoa, Nelly, I've got a lot of work to do."

STUFF, and Junk:

Write your blogfest entry! The Triweekly Blogfest Challenge -- prize is $10 -- is to post something on the theme of "Han shot first, but Time-Traveling Elvis shot second" by April 29.  Leave a link to your post in the comments to this post. You'll get 100 points for posting it, plus 5 for mentioning the blogathon.

(If you've done this, leave me a link and I'll get you the points.)

And I'm going to put another bounty out: 500 points if you get Julian Darius, or anyone from Martian Lit, to leave a comment here.

It was an A-wing.

My answer is an A-Wing crashes into the bridge.

Sorry I haven't been more active, Briane. I'm out of state right now. Yesterday, I spent all day running around visiting nursing homes in my mom's home town, and chose a proper lockdown facility, met with doctors, etc., for my mom. Today is lawyer-stuff (estate planning) and then later, setting up my mom's room for her so that she will be comfortable where her new home is.

I expect when I put her in there tonight that it will be miserable. Her care physician said that "it was time". So things have been quite rough.

Sorry to hear it, Michael.

And I'm pretty sure that A-wind was piloted by a Wookie. Those guys are tough.

Rusty Webb said...

And that was supposed to be A-wing!

PT Dilloway, Superhero Author said...

I don't think a Wookie would even fit in an A-wing.

Andrew Leon said...

It was a baby wookie.

Rusty Webb said...

Or a Wookie with Dwarfism - wait, those are Ewoks, right?

Andrew Leon said...

So it was an ewok in the a-wing, just like the one that stole the speeder bike.
