Okay, you could argue that I’m breaking one of my rules here and making a topical gag.  I’d argue back that I used a “Luke Skywalker on Hoth” gag twenty years after Empire Strikes Back in almost the same way, and not to be topical.  As a friend said to me, “Lord of the Rings is this generation’s Star Wars.”  This gag will hold up better than Helm’s Deep did.  Fools!  I’ll show you all!
