Swabby Luke

At some point circa 1999, in the pre-Star Wars: Episode I, The Phantom Menace days, there was a slew of new Star Wars action figures being released. One such figure, Luke Skywalker “Escape from Mos Eisley”, was referred to around the office as “Swabby Luke”, on account of his wearing a “Swabby Hat” (see Fig. 1)

Credit where credit’s due, the use of “Swabby” was not my doing (credit goes to one Mark Powers who may have picked it up from Mike Rockwitz, if memory serves), but regardless, a good handful of us in the office found it quite entertaining…

The Attic Sketch

Today is tax day, which means local and national news outlets will undoubtably have a reporter “on the scene” at a post office, commenting on the long lines and waits for people to get their returns out postmarked by the 15th.

Seems to happen every year, despite April 15th falling pretty much on April 15th every year.

Want something different? How about a comedy sketch that is so tangentally related to tax day that one could only call it a stretch to make the connection? Check it out right here.
