This Week in Star Wars News: RIP Admiral MottiPosted: April 17, 2013 Filed under: Nerd HQ 3 Comments
American actor Richard LeParmentier has passed away at the age of 66. Star Wars nerds know him as Admiral Motti, the insolent commander who dared to talk trash to Darth Vader about The Force. In his most memorable line, he makes fun of Vader’s “sad devotion to that ancient Jedi religion.” Darth responds that he finds Motti’s “lack of faith disturbing” and then chokes his ass out. With his mind.
Sith Lords do not respond well to constructive criticism.
Such a classic scene, RIP!
I know, right? RIP for sure.
If I was a Sith Lord, the very first thing I’d do is hotfoot it over to one of those Westboro Baptist Church rallies.
Batshit-Crazy Westboro Guy: “Gay people are the Devil! U.S. soldiers are dying because of divorced monkey AIDS. God told me personally that garble, garble, craziness, garble, garble, hellfire!”
Me: “I find your lack of humanity disturbing.” Makes cool hand gesture.
Batshit-Crazy Westboro Guy: “Well, who cares what you… ACK!” (Choking noises. LOTS of choking noises.)
That would be the BEST.
So, what would you do with your powers if you could harness The Force?
