You might be a redneck Jedi if ...
  • You've heard heard the phrase, "May the force be with y'all."
  • Your Jedi robe is camo.
  • You put some of these Crazy Pranks and Gags fake bullet holes on your x-wing.
  • That 'Disturbance in the Force' was just last night's baked beans.
  • You've had an X-wing up on blocks in your yard.
  • You refer to Yoda as your Li'l green buddy.
  • You have ever used a light saber to light the barbecue grill.
  • Your Father's name is Garth Vader.
  • You've ever given someone a wedgie by using the Force.
  • You're beer belly puts Jabba's to shame.
  • Your idea of a practical joke is stickin a banana in Boba Fett's tail pipe.
  • You've ever fantasized about Princess Leia a pair of tight Daisy Duke shorts.
  • The cake at your wedding was sliced with a lightsabor.
  • You asked to be buried with your LightSaber.
  • You use your lightsabre as a bug zapper.
  • You're flying an x-wing which has no original parts.
  • You got fuzzy dice hanging in the cockpit of your X-Wing.
  • You say 'these are not the beers you are looking for.'

  • You've ever kissed your sister. Wait, what?

I know that joke was done above, but it's funny in this context, too.

Yeah, I caught that about the remakes, too.

I also hate how the jedi spirit of anakin was changed to a young man instead of the original old man version. Ruins the end for me.

The young Anakin doesn't bother me as much as some of the other changes to the "special editions" -

1) Han shot first. This bothers me the most - it totally changes the character development of Han Solo. Instead of starting as a scoundrel and finally showing he's got a heart and turning around, by only shooting after (or at the same time) as Greedo the movie now shows no development - he's always had a heart, he only shoots in self defense! BS.

2) Jabba's band. That new musical number in ROTJ with the jarring CGI characters just sucks.

3) Yub Yub. Look, the new song at the end of ROTJ is nice, but I miss the unbridled celebration of the original victory song with the Ewoks.

4) Jabba in ANH. This was cut for good reason. Leave it there. Undermines Jabba as someone to be feared when Han just casually steps on his tail. Plus Boba Fett is in that scene for no other reason than "Look - It's Boba Fett! Ain't he Cool?"

5) WTF is that thing coming out of the Sarlacc pit??
