I'll admit, even I am not getting the apparent humor.


Made for IE Forum's Episode III theme month - May 2005.

Such a pity then that the free world he 'leads' does not get a say in the election/(appointment) of its 'leader'.



Slightly back on topic:
Here's the real reason that the Stormtroopers are such bad shots.
They were out getting wasted when they should have been reporting for duty.

"The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Goering.

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." - Goebbels.

"In times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act." - Orwell.

I think everything to say about this already has been said, but I’ll put in my two cents anyway.

We see Stormtroopers successfully defeat their enemies on the Tantive IV and on Hoth. Obviously there’s also a lot of plot armor regarding the main heroes always escaping and as we see on Endor with the Ewoks, who I’d also argue were pretty good warriors in their own rights.

They really aren’t that bad of shots and I don’t think its unbelievable at all that Stormtroopers would have such good aim.

This is a case of a joke in the fandom becoming a genuine talking point and criticism I think, one based on little, or very circumstantial evidence, that then seems to become a predominant idea which is held as almighty truth by some because it is reinforced by memes and jokes. (Again, my two cents on this.)

Kinda like how the Trek fandom has painted Kirk as a swinger when that really wasn’t how he was portrayed in TOS at all.
