Recursion shot first!

There is a picture with this post. In this picture (taken from comics101.com and then trimmed a bunch to remove everything else from possible focus) is a man.

The man in this picture is George Lucas.

George Lucas is wearing a t-shirt.

It is a Han Shot First t-shirt.

Is that the sound of the universe opening a tear and sucking itself into a horrible infinite loop? It might be. The rest of the photo, for the record, shows Lucas talking to Harrison Ford who is in Indy garb. Which, I grant you is even funnier in some ways.

Because then, you see, George Lucas is wearing a Han Shot First t-shirt while talking to Han Solo. All right, actually, here is that as well.

Lucas talking to Han Solo while wearing a Han Shot First t-shirt. The recursion is mind-boggling.

  1. T-shirt should actually read “I made three more Star Wars movies which had an excellent story which was tough to decipher through the poor acting and cheesy lines, so everyone thinks they weren’t good at all, and all I got was this lousy t-shirt and a bad reputation…. and a billion dollars.”

  2. The fabric of space which is stretched over the belly of Lucas in the form of a tshirt is, indeed, infinite.

  3. Only two other people have said it, but it’s true…recursion doesn’t mean what you think it means.

  4. I don’t undestand why this commotion around this matter, as it is quite simple: Greedo clearly fired first.
    Han was drunk and he’s a mess of a fighter, so there’s no reason why Greedo shouldn’t have the upper hand.
    Han got luck. Drunk luck.

  5. Here at BMSB.com the theological holding that Han shot first in the first episode of the Holy Trilogy is considered blasphemy. That’s why I’m awfully confused to come across the following picture thank you.

  6. If a miniscule change in a 30 year old movie (a 30 year old movie) about fictional (as in, do not now or have ever existed) people, in a fictional time, at a fictional place, with made-up (see fictional) equipment, can crank your horn, I wonder what would happen if you ever watched the evening news with the same amount of concern.

    Too funny.

  8. Okee dokee, If han shot first he should be arrested,tried,convicted and sentenced to death by death star, right??
    But since it all happened in holywoops he’ll just check in to rehab and all’s forgiven right?

  10. This isn’t really geek speak. Well, maybe it’s film geek speak. But c’mon, people take part in your culture! How would you feel if Caddyshack was changed so there were no high explosives.

  11. Thanks for you.. It’s an inside joke that many people get. It’s hillarious really. It’s like when a guy named ‘George’ was a guest on the Colbert Report for having made a video spoof using Stephen Colbert’s own footage of himself doing lightsaber moves.
