that he did, like he, so, you know what Star Wars, the phantom menace is, Of course you don't you don't know. So, so one of the funniest moments in my entire life, So, Star Wars, the phantom menace is a prequel, okay, it's a prequel to the rest of the Star Wars movies, and it tells the story of a young Anakin Skywalker. Now, Anakin Skywalker goes on to become Darth Vader, I'm assuming, you know who Darth Vader is, so he's related to luke Skywalker. Oh, that's right, I'm your father, Okay, look at that. Hey, look at that. Um right, so Anakin Skywalker luke, Skywalker's Dad comes Darth Vader. Hopefully you guys, I didn't smell anything from having in 1980 for you guys. So, my father, I don't think quite, he didn't quite get the prequel aspect of this, right? You know, my dad never really thought about like, stuff with prequels, my dad would say the Empire strikes back was the baddest movie he ever saw, He's like, that's some bad shit, that's something that they would lose. That luke Skywalker. He bad, that's a bad motherfucker right there went up against the guy, the guy that was his daddy. It was the day the whole time I just showed you sometimes boy, sometimes sometimes boy you gotta go ahead, you gotta can't be two bulls in the same pen. Sometimes boy, if it's one bull in there, that young boy, I got to go get it from that old bull and that's what luke Skywalker was doing one day. That's gonna happen with me and you you know, one day that's gonna happen with me and you you're gonna bring your ass in here because a man don't take care of another man, you're gonna think you're a man and either the old bull gonna win, or the young bull gonna win, but it can only be one bull. All right, So when the when the prequels came out, my father thought that they were actually Sequels because number one, they don't look nothing like the old movies, they look better. It makes sense, it makes all the sense in the world. Yeah, like they don't look nothing like the old movies, right, they look better, right? Uh The Jedi actually even Fight Flash here, just he thought that they were Sequels. And so the phantom menace comes out. I go to the movies to see it probably six or seven times, but now it's on DVD and I'm watching it at the house and my dad is like uh now that little boy, because Anakin Skywalker is a little boy in the movies, he goes that little boy, who is that little boy? And I was like uh oh that's Anakin Skywalker. And he goes, oh that's luke Skywalker's son. And I was like, no, Anakin Skywalker, dad is Darth Vader, that's this is a prequel. This happened before. He was like, what you mean? I was like, this happened 40, some odd years or whatever before the movies, they're showing you how things got to where they are, and he was like, so you mean to tell me that little boy right there is Darth Vader, And I'm like, yeah, and he goes, well why won't somebody cut his fucking head off? And I'm like, what? He was like, that's gonna they gonna blow up the whole galaxy, why want somebody just cut his head off, You need to kill him now? And I was like, dad, they're not going to kill the kid, this is how the kid turns into the thing. He's like, nah, I can't look at this shit, turn this shit off, turn it off. He's like cut that shit off, Like cut this shit, I don't want I want to look at this shit because all they gotta do right now, that's what's wrong. All they gotta do right now is get rid of that motherfucker right there and then I was there and I never forget, I go with that. If you kill an organ, there would never be a luke. And luke's your favorite guy. He paused for a second and he goes, you know what you do? You get your motherfucking ass up and go out there and beat divorces. How about your luke skywalker? That like luke skywalker?
