Everybody sells out

So there I was, waiting around for Jar Jar to make up his mind what type of speeder he wants and flipping through some old issues of JEDHI-TIMES I found back at the pad, (I'm pretty sure they belonged to Qui-Gon) when my bright little eyes spotted something quite amazing. An add. Not just any add but an add endorsed by the Sith Lord himself, Count Dooku.
























He sold out!
I remember when Jedi Masters (good or bad) stood for somthing -had principles. It wasn't about the money or the fame, it was about the music (of life). As a young impressionable Jawa, I would look up the the Jedi knights as leaders of a much bigger movement. They showed me how to dream. They helped expand our minds as well as expand the force. They were going to change the world.
Oh, they did all right. Some fell to the dark side and became greedy. Most just rolled over and let that greed take over (or they got killed...same difference) Now almost no one remembers the true reasons and beliefs the Jedi once stood for. They're all out just to make a buck.

So next time you see one of your fellow Jedi selling out, just remember...it didn't use to be like that.






















....Oh, how the mighty have fallen....

Hi-freaken-larious, JJ.

I had in mind to expose the same type of Sith sell-out greed in my blog...but the ad I'm exploiting doesn't carry nearly as much 'oohmp' as yours do.

Bravo!

Those have gained a spot on my hard drive.

That's actually kind of scary.

Qui-Gon Jinn said...

Oh wow.
That gave me a good laugh.
The fact that they've become sell out breadheads is like totally overshadowed by the fact that they prove the evil of bread man. Bread makes you do adverts for cleaning products and laxatives. That bread is like gone fast too. But those adverts last forever.
Thanks for finding those, JJ!
