I’m having a hard time understanding we’re they intentionally making a joke that is stupid and falls flat or were they intentionally trying to deceive and the joke is the lame excuse to laugh it off.

Jabba actually knows how to negotiate a deal. Not everyone can stare down a bounty hunter holding a thermal detonator and get them to agree to shave fifteen thousand off their asking price.

Jabba also plainly doesn’t have a problem with being seen as a fat slovenly worm with tiny hands.

I think that says it all with this administration.

This is like when teachers screw up and say “I was testing you” when you call them out.

Indeed. Although… maybe Oliver Closoff hits too close to home with this administration…

That sounds like a joke name (like Mike Hunt or Dick Gosinya) but I can’t figure it out.

To be fair, if I found myself working for agent orange, I’d use a fake name, too.

Jabba the Hut: no morals, living a lavish lifestyle, and completely disregarding the law in pursuit of profits and power. While Jabba is not a superhero, he may be a personal hero of Trump.

John Cleese should sue since they are claiming they intentionally included his name.

Seriously no Zapp Branigan?
The Futurama guys wanted to build a wall around the southern hemisphere of the solar system to keep ilegal aliens out.

No Benjamin Lockwood (Agent liberty) either wich is another missed opportunity.

All kidding aside, the best way to view this is they forgot to remove the brown M&Ms from the bowl. Or even prep a bowl of M&Ms.

I’d say John Cleese would consider this tantamount to defamation. And he would be right.

Last I heard, he was dead. But it was a long time ago.
