->George Lucas once said he wished he could track down every single copy of the ''Star Wars Holiday Special'' and smash it to pieces with a sledgehammer. Thanks to the easy breezy modern data transfers of today, that task just got a lot harder. A typical [=YouTube=] search turns up [[TheStreisandEffect fifty different tapings of the special.]] Thousands, maybe millions, are watching the horror at any given time around the world. That's a lot of hard drives to smash, George -- better get busy. And honestly, your time would be better spent doing that than whatever you're working on.

->Some people think, mistakenly, that the ''Star Wars Holiday Special'' is hilariously entertaining in the [[SoBadItsGood it's-so-bad-it's-good]] category. These people are idiots. Idiots who have never sat through an entire viewing of the ''Holiday Special''...It is mostly like watching a one-armed, blind, five-year-old bowl in slow motion for an hour and a half."''

'''Mike:''' (sagely) If you want to complain about how bad the ''Stars Wars Holiday Special'' is, you need to have watched it from beginning to end. If you have not, you have no right to complain about how bad it is. It's a rite of passage.
