At the time of writing this post, I was laughing to myself cause I thought it was pretty witty. It's really sad to hear about the passing of Carrie Fisher though, but I feel it will only make us cherish the original films even more.

I'm glad you guys enjoyed the piece, though! I rarely post satire articles as I don't wish to fool anybody - but I couldn't pass this opportunity up.

Good one Chris, and very theatrical. First you had me on the edge of my seat - gasping ... in dread, and then close to tears by mentioning Carrie.
