[Disclaimer: This is just for a laugh… a fictional-rant.]
I have no strong emotions toward Yoda either way. Please don’t come at me with reasons no one should bitch about Yoda… this post does not reflect my actual opinion. I just didn’t know what to write… this was my son’s suggestion. I swear I am not as much of a nerd as this post implies… I’m just surrounded by the obsessions of my husband and son. I also know lots of crazy detail about Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Oh, wait, that probably makes me a nerd, too.

Is Yoda supposed to be a lovable little grandpa-type character? Is he supposed to look (and therefore seem) old and wise? I can accept the old and wise. I can even accept that he represents the power of The Force well because he can defeat bad dudes despite his small stature.
But he’s a little troll.
I am so sick of people imitating his manner of speech. Bite me, you should. [I know, I just did it. I know.] It’s gotten old. Like, really old. Yoda-age old.
[Ahh… see I’m not that much of a nerd… I don’t know how old he is… but I bet if I ask my son or husband, they’ll know the answer. Hold please… … I knew it. The boy says, “He was about 900 when he died.”]
He’s a fucking Jedi Master… he can move shit with his mind but he can’t put words in order? Yeah, I know… maybe that’s the way his kind speak. I don’t care. When the Jedi Masters gather, all the others can manage proper word order… but not him. Silly little muppet. His voice is creepy, too. I know this because when my husband imitates it, he sounds like a pervy old man. I have forbidden him from doing it ever again.
So, in short (pun intended), he’s a wrinkly little green troll… I just want to kick him across the room. Mace Windu should clearly have been in charge.
