Here’s A Photo Of Mr. Met Hanging Out With Some Stormtroopers, Boba Fett


There might be a Wookie mixed in there along with a Tusken Raider thrown in as well, which is nice. And here’s how I envision how the dialogue went:

Stormtrooper: Let me see your identification.
Obi-Met: [with a small wave of his hand] You don’t need to see his identification.
Stormtrooper: We don’t need to see his identification.
Obi-Met: These aren’t the fans you’re looking for.
Stormtrooper: These aren’t the fans we’re looking for.
Obi-Met: He can go about his business.
Stormtrooper: You can go about your business.
Obi-Met: Move along.
Stormtrooper: Move along… move along.

What? Yes, I agree, it was completely unoriginal going the above route, but what did you expect me to do? Work for it? I’d rather kiss a Wookie.

As you can see, it was “Star Wars Night” on Tuesday at Citi Field. And according to a New York Times report, it was also “Stand Up to Cancer Night … and Stitch n’ Pitch Night … and Filipino Heritage Night.” Hoo boy. Filipinos and Star Wars nerds intermingling? That could have gotten real ugly real fast. Thankfully, it did not and both groups went about their business of watching the Mets lose. Again. No “New Hope” on this night, Mets fans.
