So this is what a wombat looks like. The mystery is finally solved.
I found this photo over on Yahoo in the photo section of Yahoo News. This evidently was one of the most emailed photos for yesterday. I enjoy going there to see what photos people are emailing to each other. The photos usually fall into different categories: fashion models in their underwear or cute baby animals.
These wombats are from the Chicago Zoological Society’s Brookfield Zoo. The baby wombat’s name is “Joey” and the mother’s name is “Kambora”.
Now that I know what a wombat looks like, I have to wonder why Luke Skywalker was bragging about shooting them. When being briefed on the mission to take out the Death Star, he told everyone he used to bullseye wombats in his T-16 back home on the Tatooine, the Rosamond, California of the Star Wars universe. He also claimed that they were not much bigger than two meters. From the photo, they’re a lot smaller than two meters. I think he was exaggerating his story a bit to make it sound somehow more impressive.
Luke Skywalker is a psychopath
I never liked Luke Skywalker. There was just something about him that rubbed me the wrong way. If he wasn’t trying to suck face with his own sister, he was bragging about killing cute defensive animals. I’m surprised he didn’t try to tell everyone about the time he got into a bare knuckle fist fight with a Jawa. He would undoubtedly leave out the part about Jawas only being 3 feet tall or the fact that the Jawa kicked his ass.
Luke Skywalker is a sister kissing, animal killing jerk.
