Mos Eisley Cantina: Where Everybody Knows Your Name

Posted on: December 28th, 2011 at 8:19 am by

Let’s nerd out to some Star Wars hilarity, shall we?  The Mos Eisley Cantina scene, what with its jazzy score and cast of freaky characters, was always a favorite in the Boogie household.  Now it’s been one-upped by the creative folks over at fansite Rogue Squadron.

According to some clever alternative storytelling, the Cantina is really just the local Cheers of the worthless planet Tatooine.  A place where Han kills Greedo (he shoots first) and Hammerhead wears a beer helmet.  Even Vader shows up with his posse of storm troopers.  The opposing sides of the Force might be strong with these folk, but at least here they can set aside their differences with a pint of piss.
