    Man I thought the new Star Wars was fairly weak. R2D2 kicking ass? reminds me of prequels, the whole “take the shot” Chewie on Darth Vader thing felt silly to me. Just felt a little light in the cod piece so to speak. Maybe I expected to much…

  2. JD (Host) says:


    Sorry you didn’t like it :/

    Were there Star Wars comics you DO like?

  3. “Knucklepussy” You keep using that word, JD. I don’t think it means what you think it means.

  4. Roland"KnucklePussy"Regan says:

    I am not saying that I hated it or anything. I felt more along the lines of Mr. Lieb, which I do believe Major Douche, that that rhymes with Heeb.(He seemed pretty Leathery skinned, so I figured he could handle this). I felt it was a fairly safe story with very little at stake, that’s all. Shit I’m acting like a KnucklePussy again…

  5. JD (Host) says:


    Knucklepussy means horseplay and unbelievable silliness!

    HeebLieb. I would think it offensive if I didn’t like it so much.

  6. Ding ding ding heeb is correct. I want officially anointed as a Goy Toy though so I can say it. Plus I named Ghost Matzah
