Poll: Life Choices in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

The journey from cradle to grave is filled with formidable challenges and difficult choices. Sometimes success or failure depends on who you choose to jump into the foxhole with. Below we present four real-life situations and ask you, dear reader, to select who you would most like to have by your side when facing the given situation. While I urge you to think carefully before answering each one, there are no wrong answers. Except maybe answer (b) in the first question.

Choose wisely!

Q1. You find yourself in a dark alley cornered by a group of thugs. Who would you most want to have your back?
Chewbacca
C3PO
Han Solo
Yoda

I would like to hear from the person who picked C3PO as their wingman.

Am I the only one who thinks Yoda is the best answer for all the questions?

Orel said...

"Go for it, dude, totally you should."

I picked C3PO as wingman because Chewie would scare the hotties away, Han would take them all, Yoda wouldn't help much and 3PO would make me look more studly in contrast.

I can't believe people would want a cock-blocker like Han Solo for their wingman. You might think he's your wingman, but that guy will steal your princess for himself.

I wouldn't want him checking in on my wife. Can't trust the Jedi Mind Trick.

Orel said...

But Han Solo has a thing for your sister. Win-win!

I never knew that all of the former Dodgers on Sons of Steve Garvey enjoy discussing Star Wars in their free time. But I must say, following the Star Wars' trilogy is definitely for more interesting than watching the Dodgers' offensive struggles.

I'm more of a Chewbacca type of guy. You can't resist that hair. http://dodgers.tumblr.com

My next question is: which is the stupider choice, 1(b) or 3(c)?

QuadSevens said...

Yoda would never use the Jedi Mind Trick to cause harm. He could use it in a bar to make some good looking women want to talk to you though.

Eric Karros said...

I think that particular use of Jedi Mind Tricks might go against Yoda's morals as well. So I feel he'd just end up creeping out the ladies. And Solo would definitely cock-block, the question is would you be willing to take his leftovers?

And I'm surprised so many respect Threepio's financial prowess.

Orel said...

Threepio could get Artoo to hack into the NYSE's computers.

karina said...

Since i like boys so much, i'd choose to hit the bar scene with Harrison Ford, errr, Han Solo.

karina said...

why wasn't Obi-Wan Kenobi included?

Orel said...

Karina likes old boys!

Eric Karros said...

Well Karina, since you asked, here was my thinking:

Besides Chewie, 3PO, Solo, and Yoda, I considered Luke, Obi-Wan, R2, Lando, and Leia. I eliminated Obi-Wan and Luke because I figured their 'essence' was already represented by Yoda. Same with Lando and Solo. And to a lesser degree, and at the risk of being accused of robot stereotyping, I figured the same with R2 and 3PO. And Leia just sort of fell through the cracks.

Steve Sax said...

EK, don't be discriminating against the Lando!

karina said...

I like different kinds of boys!

Eric, nice explanation

I'd love to see her on a poll sometime, remember her offspring brought balance to the Force.
