Here's a link to a post I wrote on my website for April Fools. Check it out. It's not much, but it was all I could think of that day. Tell me what you think!

I like it, the only thing that might have made it more interesting/funny is if instead of using George R. Binks do something like an anagram of a name of someone at Lucasfilm (kinda like putting a puzzle in something where theres that moment of "ohh THATS why it seemed familiar").

Pretty good and believable though. Wonder how many fans who really hate Jar Jar had a nervous breakdown because of that.

I was going mostly for Infuriate Jar Jar Haters.

And note, George R. Binks was an actual comic book story from Tales #20. It's real, which is scary. It's not canon or anything. Here's a link to the wiki page.

Nice omnibus cover. Plus I never knew Jar Jar's family had a backstory, now I'm going to have to go out and find that one.

That was a good prank. If I hadn't known beforehand that it was a prank, I would have believed it.

I worked on that cover for a while, trying to decided how to do it. I tryed doing a square image on the bottom like the real omnibuses do, but it didn't look good. I like how it turned out using Jar Jar's picture from the Guide to Characters book.
