    Ugh, Lego news.

      “Ugh, Lego is worse than Hitler. It’s worse than AIDS. It’s worse than Hitler AIDS. I hate Lego entirely out of proportion to the effect it has on my life and Star Wars.”

        I love Legos. They are great for teaching kids to build stuff. But they have absolutely nothing to do with Star Wars. You might as well have Cabbage Patch Kids be Star Wars characters.

        So you can knock off the red herring “Hitler” comments, which do not come off as clever, but instead show that you have nothing.

          “Whoosh” – that’s the sound of the point flying over your head. Again. You incessantly show up to bitch and whine, needing the world to know how much you hate Lego and Star Wars, and won’t be partaking, like it’s something that personally offends you in some way. First, “Hitler” is used to stand for a horrible thing. If you can’t grasp something that simple, I can’t help you here. Since you also don’t seem to understand the term ‘red herring’, I don’t have especially high hopes here. Second, if you were watching these things and hating them, I’d see why you post the same shit every time a bit of Lego news comes up. Claiming that you don’t care about it, won’t watch, and STILL whining constantly about it is just the definition of trolling, so you deserve whatever slap-downs you receive.

            lol, don’t get yourself all worked up over Legos. And don’t try so hard to justify your use of the word “Hitler” because you’re only digging yourself deeper into your hole. (roflol for YOUR misunderstanding of the term “red herring”.) Now go back to your My Little Pony forum so you can chat it up with your peers.

      Which happens to be the only thing you comment on. Rather than skip over it, you stop to tell us how much you don’t care. EVERY. TIME.

        No I comment on lots of posts. Apparently my Lego posts are the only ones you notice. Your loss.

    Well, Christie put in more of a performance here than she did in TFA you have to give her that. That’s also the worst Adam Driver, Erik Bauerfield, and Oscar Issac impression ever.

      Driver was fine, Oscar Isaac is off, and Bauerfield impressions all sound the same as Admiral Ackbar.
