Time traveler, R2D2, easily blended with 1980’s culture, but gifts from the natives caused a sticky situation in his innards. (125)

“Look, Bella, Edward’s brought some trick-or-treaters.”

“Have them wait in the library, while I find the blood substitute.” (122)

His siblings suffered from too much book learnin’, but Wesley’s cannon volley skills secured his future as the next Dread Pirate Roberts. (137)


I was going to feature a clip from The Princess Bride that included Dread Pirate Robert’s well known line:

Good night, Wesley. Good work. Sleep well. I’ll most likely kill you in the morning.

When I came across this parody, however, I couldn’t resist using it instead.

    Oh, now I know why R2D2’s face has turned blue. I guess he’d never had candy before.

    It’s nice of Bella to provide the substitute blood for the pirate and robot.

    Cheers for Wesley for securing his future as D. P. Roberts.

    These are all too cute, and la piece de resistance is the hilarious video. Thanks for the laughs, grandma. You da bomb!

    Too much candy can upset even the most hardy stomach!:LOL

    I’m glad that Wesley at least studied how to opperated the cannon. That skill can come in handy for the up and coming pirates.

    Poor R2D2, do you think that Alka-Seltzer could help him?
