R2-BQ

This logo is hereby awarded twin distinctions: The Worst Barbecue-related Punning (since May, 2009 nothing has come close) and Biggest Over-all Stretch. "May The Sauce Be With Que"?

And look what's become of the clear-cut Star Wars mythos: instead of the Force—a powerful, nurturing energy that animates all living things—we have the Sauce. Instead of a life-giving and sustaining element of nature, we have a condiment for space pigs who would rather die than live.

We assume that the two characters—let's call them, oh… Luke Swinewalker and Boarth Vader (or, no, let's not)—are fighting for possession of R2-BQ. So that he might cook them. Whereupon they will be eaten by jawas. Or whatever.







Addendum: For more sci-fi monkey business, see this previous post.

R2BQ's shape and function seems to be a reference to the 'Ball-B-Q,' common in the 70s and still detectable in certain places.

I think R2 is supposed to be a WSM.

(According to our crackerjack Research Team, that translates to Weber Smokey Mountain cooker smoker.)
