    Not counting things like the stage shows and stuff. Just random moments.

    Here are mine:

    1. Ralph Brown during the Opening Ceremony! I loved how he walked on stage and took a picture of the audience!:cool:

    2. George Lucas mixing up Jay Laga'aia with Body Taylor during the first Q&A session and no one in the audience dared to correct him, not even Jay Laga'aia himself. GL was talking about how they filmed Jay and then dublicated him (as Clone Troopers). [face_whistling]

    3. Forgot where Jay Laga'aia said it (possibly during the Wookie show) about how cold it was out there and how he nearly froze off his balls- what did he call them? And then he called the audience ugly (this is an insider joke which he first used at a German convention in reply that he wasn't used as Jango Fett for being too handsome, or so I heard).:)


    Post your fun memories!

    Probably one of the funniest moments for me was at the Marriott lounge when someone asked to see a tattoo I have in a....."unusual" spot. I carefully lowered my boxers so as not to expose myself, not realising that the lowering of the boxers caused the "fly" to open wide........:oops:

    Recognizing Nick Giliard as he walked by me. I had a surprised look on my face, and Nick smiled back at me.

    1. Taking charge of the line Sat. AM and ordering Associates around.
    2. Having Associates try to bribe me to get in the front of the line. I just pointed at all the cold sleeping superfans and said "would that be fair to them?" One lady even tried to bribe me with, ahem, favors of a physical type.
    3. Going to the Lucas talk, and having Banakin Skywalker ask George what would happen to George after he died. GL looked totally perplexed to be asked such a deep and personal question by a walking Banana.

    During the Matthew Wood panel, his mic kept cutting out, and he started to fumble with it, but was just making the problem worse. It was funny because he is one of the main sound editors on the SW prequels. When he admitted that he couldn't fix his mic, he said, "I'm a fraud!"

    Also, during the same panel, Jay asked him to say, "And would you like fries with that?" in the Grevious voice. It was hilarious.

    Saturday morning in the line outside, waiting for George, a guy had a bad fight with his umbrella because it was damn windy, and a guy behind me starting commentary on the show and it was just awesome funny.

    And the thing where jay called the people ?Ugly? was from German Jedi Con in 2004.
    He was hilarious in Germany, I guess everybody loved him.

    Standing in line for the Opening Ceremony for three hours and then having to go to the restroom and when I returned they closed the area. Someone else had my stuff.
    I tried to tell those security guys to let me back in to get to my backpack and whatnot.....no chance. The GenCon guys acted depth.
    Oh well, I was pissed off. Though, it was very funny how others suddenly started addressing you with things such as, "Were you in line? Hey, man, let this guy back in. Don't act unfair. Let us all in."[face_mischief]

    I didn't get in. So I missed on the Stormtroopers marching into the hall. I did however see them line-up on the corridor, which was cool. Then I went to the fan theater and watched one or two short films. A half hour later I somehow got in to the Opening Ceremony![face_dancing] Before Rick McCallum came on stage. Even before the Battle of the Heroes Music Video. Before Steve Sansweet said "Sith Happens"!

    -Being woke up by the buzzsaw that was running lose in our room, aka JediRiff's snoring. :D

    -Paul Blake's showing me a little sign that he made which said "Han shot first. Its okay signed, Greedo" when I jokingly asked who REALLY shot first. :)

    -The drunk dude passing out on JediRiff's bed when the group of people came back to our room after the party at The Lotus.

    I think for me my top funniest would have to be... (In no piticular order)

    -Baring witness to K.O.B. droping his pants down in front of actress that played Sly Morea (Or how ever the way you sell it)whitch leeds me too...

    -Getting that actress so drunk off her (Beep!) that she shows off her twins =P~ for everybody. ( I know I'm good [face_mischief])

    "Saturday morning in the line outside, waiting for George, a guy had a bad fight with his umbrella because it was damn windy, and a guy behind me starting commentary on the show and it was just awesome funny. "

    HAHAHAHAHA! I remember that because I was in line with that very same person. And guess who that person is? Yes, Mr. Umbrella man is our very own moderator The2ndQuest. :p


    the other 2 funniest moments for me:

    Ralph Brown's reaction when I asked him to sign a mountain dew can with his face on it. He didn't even know that his face made it onto a soda can. He was like "Oh my god!" and tilted his head back in his chair. He then took a photo with him and the can. If I had had a spare can, I would have let him keep mine, but I'm trying to get all 24 cans signed.


    The other funniest moment for me was the video piece they used to introduce Jay Laga'aia for a lot of the sessions he hosted. They showed clips of Typho with some sort of "he has everything under control" theme. Then it cut to a shot of the ship exploding and him getting blown over onto his back and the words "maybe not" came up on screen.


    Another funny moment was during a Rick McCallum session where he was talking about the age old tradition of going to the movies. He said something along the lines of "if you're lucky, and the movie was really good, you might get even luckier after the movie" in reference to movie dates.

    I was at that one with my friend Jason. :D

    Top 3, eh. Well mine can all be summed up with quotes:

    "Lucas is coming... Lucas is coming... Lucas is coming." (waiting in line for George Lucas after 3 hours sleep).

    "I have come to drip on your floor" (after walking around the hotel at 12am in a soaked swimsuit)

    "letmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeout
    letmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeoutletmeout!" (After being trapped in a Ford Focus for 2 1/2 days - even though the company was awesome ;) )

    - Walking from the hotel to C3, outside in the cold, with my Malikili outfit on when a police officer stopped his car, got out, and had his partner take a picture of me with him.

    - Right after that, I was walking past a reporter from CNN who was interviewing a Darth Vader when he stopped in mid-sentence, reached out for me and said to his camerman,"I just have to get this guy on camera!!!" (My wife was just so proud)

    - Falling asleep in the elevator after a few drinks

    1. The One Man SW Trilogy. HILARIOUS!

    2. Obi-Wan taking down Jar Jar during the Cantina scene in the Musical. Never laughed so hard in my life!!! [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    3. Waiting in line to meet Ray Park and my mom asked me who he played, and I told her Darth Maul. She said "THAT is Darth Maul?! God, he's hot!!!" (And I told her that's one reason why I was in that line! ;)) [face_laugh] [face_laugh]

    My top three would be:

    1. Nearly running (literally) into Rick McCallum on the first night after the improptu showing of the spectacular footage. The funny part was seeing me blubber and stammer trying to talk to him for like 2 minutes. I never did give him my name. I could barely remember it myself!

    2. Myself, a man dressed in jams and an Obi-Wan robe, and a Princess Leia chick who was kinda hot heckling the crap out of A New Hope. It was like MST 3000 in there. It was great!

    3. Sitting inside the convention center by the concession area on Friday morning watching all the really wet people drag their extremely heavy looking jedi robes through the door. And Saturday when it snowed, that was fun too. Watching the ill preparded people freeze their underdressed cajones off!!!:D

    Oh! There was also when BADKARMAJMC333 carried -E- down the middle of the convention center offering to trade her for a vader fig. (The funny part was the guys waving their figs as if to bid....[face_laugh] )
