    Oh yeah, I'm back. :cool:

    These are as funny as ever Tahi! And...if I may be so bold, are you thinking of basing one off of Us Two? I know that one by heart! :D

    Thanks, Whitey. :)

    And at last here's another hum. As with the others in this series, I have emulated the format of the original, and kept as close as I can to its rhythm.

    **********

    [Based on "Cheerily" in The Hums of Pooh]

    Our Hero
    (A celebratory, congratulatory, very affectionate kind of hum for a very small being with a very big - speaking metaphorically, of course - heart.) :)

    3 Cheers for Artoo!
    (For who?)
    For Artoo--
    (Why what did he do?)
    I thought you knew -
    Without Artoo, the GFFA
    Would not be what it is today;
    In fact, the place would be a void
    Without our faithful little Droid.
    (Forgive me if I sound a pain,
    But who is this Artoo again?)

    Oh listen, do!
    It almost seems
    As if your ears
    Are full of beans!
    Or maybe you?ve been rendered so
    By Del Rey and the NJO;
    Or listening to Threepio
    Has made your aural circuits blow.
    So please refrain from being twitty
    At least until I?ve made this ditty.
    (Beg pardon for my ignorance,
    I didn?t mean to cause offence.
    I think you said the GFFA
    Would not be what it is today
    Without Artoo - a little Droid?)

    This is a fact you can?t avoid.
    I?m glad that you are seeing sense,
    So with my hum I?ll recommence
    And start with a familiar scene -
    Two Jedi and Queen Amidala
    In space (where no-one hears you scream)
    Escaping from a huge armada.
    A blast! A hit! Oh, what a to do!
    And to the rescue - ArtooDetoo.
    Without his spunk and level head
    His vaunted comrades would be dead,
    And Ric Olie would, you can see,
    Be spread across the galaxy,
    While Palpatine and Nute Gunray
    Would both be shouting hip hooray!
    Which spoils the continuity
    For everything in the OT.
    (So basically without Artoo
    The OT would become AU,
    For Obi-Wan and Han and Luke
    And Leia would have been kaput?)

    And, if not that then Threepio
    Without Artoo would surely drive
    Chewie, Leia and Lando
    As well as Han to suicide,
    Making Star Wars horribly
    Like The Revenger?s Tragedy.
    (I like a little Oedipus,
    But THAT would be ridiculous.)

    So that is why I wrote this hum
    To celebrate our little chum,
    And thank him for, midst angst and grief,
    Providing us with light relief;
    For turning fashion on its head
    By proving short and stout is HOT,
    Which means what Yoda said
    Is true - size? Nah, it matters not.
    (I see I must revise my view
    Of what a hero really is.
    I think I?ve come to realise
    Good things come in small packages.)

    Although they make a brave duo,
    Even Han and Chewie know
    The Falcon would be just a wreck
    Without a certain astromech.
    Sex appeal is fine, in truth,
    But best is being bulletproof.
    So now let?s give 3 hearty cheers
    And charge your glasses for Artoo,
    Our loyal companion through the years.
    Hey, little guy --
    This one?s for you.

    :)

    :eek:

    Tahi, every time I read something of yours, I swear it's the best thing I've ever read. So I'll do it again. These Pooh/Star Wars (I LOVE POOH!) tributes are possibly the greatest things I've ever read.

    Wow. I'm going to go keel over and die from overexposure to greatness.

    Wow, Tahi, that might be the best one yet :D So funny and so well written. I have no idea how you do it, but this one was incredible. Certainly a hum suitable for our beloved little astromech [face_love] I laughed and smiled at it the whole way through :)

    Thanks so much for that. I really appreciate your feedback. :) Was feeling a bit down, but now feel much cheerier. From one Pooh fan to another - [:D]

    YodaKenobi
    Thanks, Yoda.  Well you know me - love fiddling about with words. LOL
    Certainly a hum suitable for our beloved little astromech
    Yeah - Artoo deserves it. I can't imagine SW without him.

    I laughed and smiled at it the whole way through
    :) That made me smile - so thanks.

    FelsGoddess 
    Thankee, goddess.


    Hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving weekend. And go easy on the turkey.

    Thanks for upping this, Tahi ! I had missed it, and that was a shame!

    What a great poem... Artoo really is the driving force of SW! [face_dancing]

    Yes, little Artoo is - from a certain point of view - THE hero of SW. LOL

    Thanks for reading and enjoying, TSF. :)

    Spectacular!

    I am such a Pooh fan. I read this and had to go hug my stuffed Pooh [:D]

    The rhythm is so right for a hum. I'm amazed how you recreate the same feel.

    And of course Artoo deserves a hum, and you did him justice.

    To TKL and everyone who loves Pooh. (How can you not?)

    A Hugging Hum [:D]

    I think I am a lot like you,
    I often go and hug my Pooh.
    And when my days are full of rigour
    I also like to hug my Tigger.
    When I feel I want to scowl, :(
    I rush upstairs and hug my Owl.
    Could this thing become a habit? [face_worried]
    I'll ponder it while I hug Rabbit.
    ;)

    Yup - little Artoo definitely deserves a Hum. :) Thanks so much for reading, amd also for the lovely feedback. Always appreciated.

    Thanks so much for reading - and for the kind feedback. Artoo is one of my great favourites. I watched ANH again the other day - and it reminded me what a star he is.
