The Half-Astrophysicist Blog


You might have heard of the website Wikileaks. Wikileaks recently made news for publishing documents on the Afghan war (although they have been around for a while). They have taken on everything from Apple to the Masons to sorority initiations.

But now they have arrived as evidenced by the fact that geeks everywhere are satirizing them on Twitter. All you have to do is search Twitter for Wookieleaks. Wookieleaks is a Twitter meme where people are making up what secrets might be leaked a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. A few samples of the leaks.

“Cantina footage shows Greedos head went back and to the left. Back and to the left. BACK and to the left.”

“Inquiry reveals cantina footage digitally altered; Han Solo discharged weapon first.”

“Dumb Gungan and Republic leader, Parah Salin, banished from Hoth for hunting Wampa from snowspeeder.”

“Strormtrooper armor has been found in effective, even from rocks thrown by Ewoks”

“YT-1300 light freighter recall after reports of unintended acceleration. Senate demands Corellian Engineering Corp. hearing.”

“Protocol droid fluent in 6 mil languages discharged for violating DADT.”

Obviously, there are all kinds of cultural references being sprinkled in there. Have fun coming up with your own “Wookieleaks”.
