An Interview With Greedo From The Harvard Lampoon

  • HARVARD LAMPOON: Welcome. So, is it true that you are the greediest space alien of all time?
  • GREEDO: No, why would...? Ah, perhaps you have been misled by my name. While my name is indeed Greedo, I think you will find I am no greedier than anyone else. I am a man of modest means and meager salary, but I assure you I am content with my lot in life.
  • HARVARD LAMPOON: We saw you in Star Wars trying to collect lots of money from Han Solo. Do you go around trying to collect big sums of money because of incredibly consuming feelings of greed?
  • GREEDO: Of course not. While it is true that I am a collection agent in the employ of Jabba the Hutt, I only see that debts are paid. The money does not go to me. Besides, my culture abolished money thousands of your Earth years ago. Frankly, I don't even understand the concept. We find your custom of using scraps of paper to represent wealth laughable.
  • HARVARD LAMPOON: Now in that scene you had a gun. Didn't Han Solo have to draw his own gun under the table because he knew if you saw it you would want it too? Isn't wanting two guns just plain greedy?
  • GREEDO: Ahem. Let me refresh your memory. Han Solo drew that gun surreptitiously because he wanted to shoot me. Which he did, a very painful laser blast in the belly. I do have to hand it to him, it was a very crafty move. I never even saw it coming. However, what I wish Mr. Solo and others like him would realize is that I'm only trying to do my job. Shooting me under the table with a laser is like blaming the weather man when it rains. I'd like to stress to your readers: it's not really my fault if there is a large bounty on your head. Please do not take it out on me.
  • HARVARD LAMPOON: Weren't you mad that your part in the movie was so small? Out of greediness for fame, isn't it true that you wanted to hog all the screen time and change the title of the movie to Star Wars Starring Greedo?
  • GREEDO: In fact, no. I am an admittedly minor figure and am happy with the relatively large role I was given. I'll never forget the day Mr. Lucas "discovered" me while I was doing my volunteer work at the Tatooine Orphanage Soup Kitchen. Just having been involved with one of the greatest blockbusters of all time is reward enough. I still get butterflies every time I see the film. It's just unreal to think, "That's me up there!"
  • HARVARD LAMPOON: With a name like Greedo, you sure must be greedy!
  • GREEDO: Please, I did not choose my name. It has been difficult enough to live with its perjorative connotations. Please do not make things worse.
  • HARVARD LAMPOON: But your skin is green, which is a word that's very close to greed.
  • GREEDO: That was a very impolite remark.
  • HARVARD LAMPOON: Are you hungry? Would you like to greedily wolf down 500 space hamburgers?
  • GREEDO: Why are you doing this?
  • HARVARD LAMPOON: Hey, what's your brother's name? Selfisho?
  • GREEDO: Leave my brother out of this.
  • HARVARD LAMPOON: Thank you for taking the time to talk to us, greedy.
  • GREEDO: Damn you.

    The Real Story On Why Darth Vader Has To Wear That Life Support Suit - Told As Monty Python Might See It.
    A longer time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

    A Light Side Jedi Master and his apprentices are walkind through a meadow towards their academy. Before them lie dark, foreboding woods, and in their path stands Darth Vader, who has just recently become a Dark Lord of the Sith. Even without his black suit, he looks formidable, but the Jedi walks up to him...

    Vader - "None shall pass."
    Jedi - "What?"
    Vader - "None shall pass."
    Jedi - "I have no quarrel with you, Vader, but my students and I must pass through this forest."
    Vader - "Then you shall die!"

    (Both men draw their lightsabers and start a furious attack on noe another. Then, Vader charges at the Jedi, who neatly slices off Vader's left arm)

    Jedi - "Now stand aside worthy opponent!"
    Vader - "It's just a scratch."
    Jedi - "A scratch? Your arm's off!"
    Vader - I've had worse."
    Jedi - "You lie!"
    Vader - "Come on you pansy!"

    (They continue to fight, and through a trick of the Force, the Jedi hacks off Vader's other arm)

    Jedi - "Victory is mine!" (kneels down) "Thank the Force that I was able to defeat..."
    Vader - (kicks the Jedi and knocks him down)"Come on!"
    Jedi - (gets up) "You are indeed brave, Vader, but the fight is mine!"
    Vader - "Oh, had enough, eh?"
    Jedi - "Look you stupid piece of bantha fodder, you've got no arms left!"
    Vader - "It's just a flesh wound." (starts to kick again)
    Jedi - "Stop that!"
    Vader - "Chicken, CHICKEN!"
    Jedi - "Look, I'll have your leg!"
    Vader - (makes a raspberry sound)
    Jedi - "So be it!" (hacks off Vader's right leg)
    Vader - "I'll get you for that!" (hops towards the Jedi and knocks against him repeatedly)
    Jedi - "You'll what?"
    Vader - "Come here!"
    Jedi - "What are you going to do, bleed on me?"
    Vader - "I'm invincible! The dark knight always triumphs! I'm going to get you!"

    (the Jedi makes a disgusted face and cleaves Vader right in half)

    Vader - (top half sitting on the ground) "All right, we'll call it a draw."
    Jedi - (gestures to apprentices, who have been cowering behind a tree) "Come my students!" (they enter the forest)
    Vader - "Oh, I see, running away, eh? You yellow nerf herders, come back here and take what's coming to you...I'll bite your legs off!"

    Not long after this encounter ended, some Imperial Scout Troops found Vader and took him back to the Executor. The medics patched him up, a prosthetic arm here, a respirator there, and soon he was as good as new. As Ben Kenobi later points out, "He's more machine now than man." And thus evolved Darth Vader as we know him today.

    LUKE: (cuts Vader's shoulder with lightsaber) My name is Luke Skywalker! You killed my father! Prepare to die!
    VADER: (lopps off Luke's hand) Shut the hell up!
    LUKE:(spanish accent reallly fast yelling) Ow! My name is Luke Skywalker, you killed my father, prepare to die!
    VADER: No. Luke, I am your father! NOW will you stop saying that?!
    LUKE: (spanish accent, really loud, distorted expression on face) My name is Luke Skywalker, you didn't kill my father, I was wrong and I feel like an idiot!
