Have You Ever Really Thought About...

How utterly, completely and totally awesome the name Millennium Falcon is?

I mean, it sounds so cool, yet really, it could just as easily be called the Century Eagle, which just sounds like a school mascot. But the Millennium Falcon, that is a name that screams Bad-Ass. You even feel smoother saying the name out loud. Even the people calling you a dork for saying it aloud think you suddenly look more dashing and charismatic. They might say they don't, but they do.

The Millennium Falcon could just as easily be a jet, or a rocket or some sort of expensive sports car, and just whispering the name makes your smile lopsided and rakish and somewhere out there an attractive member of the opposite sex is thinking to themselves about you. They are thinking "So-and-so is scruffy looking, but I like it."

Think about it. And then, regardless of where you are, say it. Say it loudly. Even if you're in a laundromat or a classroom. Especially if you are in the hospital. It will make sick people well. Probably. Do it!

I...don't really like it. But that's just me.

I'M SCRUFFY!!! AND YOU ALL LIKE IT!! Especially you there in the back row.

I'll see if I can't work this into something I do today involving people who aren't me or on the internet.

I must admit, it is pretty darn nifty as far as names go. I kinda want to wear a cowboy hat, call myself Trigger ('cause that's what I'd be called if I were a dude), and call my horse Millennium Falcon. I'd be the best damn cross-dressing cowboy ever. EVER.

Jonathon - Hater.

Hahahah I don't really know what I was thinking when I wrote this post, It wasn't even Star Wars inspired, I was just cleaning out a supply closet at work and got thinking about how unusual the name is, yet simple. It's amazing to me how a goofy combination of two words can take on a life of its own.

Sherry - Girl. You would rock that lifestyle choice.
