A Tale from the Old Republic

In antiquity there was a ranching community on Tattooine who were known to be the best breeders of Banthas in the Republic.

The Great Bantha Drove of ‘07

One Bantha rancher had a prize bull which he had named “Sea Czar”. The local magistrate took such a liking to this prize Bantha bull that he sent his troops to buy or take it from the rancher. The rancher seeing that he had no standing in the matter took the money and gave the animal up.

As a final request, the rancher asked if his Bantha could eat in the pasture it had live it’s whole life one last time.

The troops just sneered at the rancher’s sentimentality and as they loaded the Bantha on the transport told the rancher “We came to ferry Sea Czar, not to graze him.”


Happy Ides of March!

Now I am going to get a salad.
