Getting This Information to Us, Many Bothans Died...

This morning, a knock on the front door of the Jedi Temple, I heard. Standing there, a Bothan was. A package he was holding.

"I have a delivery for a Mr. Y Oda."

"Me that is."

"Many Bothans died getting this package to you. Sign here please."

My new Time Life series about Dolly Parton on DVD, it was. Good about it's guaranteed overnight delivery, United Bothan Service is. But I wish that have to always recite their slogan, 'many Bothans died getting this to you', every time they deliver a package, they did not. Kind of a downer it is. Even on the side of their delivery trucks, it is. Of course, better than their old slogan it is, "We die more before 9:00 am than you die all day."

And because so dangerous their job is, the reason so many of them die is not. Because very bad drivers they are, it is. Always on their cell phones they are. Reckless, even the ones who are not drivers are. Always riding in the middle of the street their bicycle messengers are. And out in front of traffic, their couriers are always stepping. Pay attention they do not. Think you would that specialize in something other than delivery, Bothans would.

Now you see what you did? You made me laugh so hard that I spit out a spray of soup all over my pants. I'm going to have to have them dry cleaned. You will be receiving the bill shortly. You might want to think twice before being so funny.

Will you send the bill by UBS, Professor?

I admit it gets kinda old that Bothan's are always talking about how many died to get your stuff. A little investment in in common sense and drivers ed. would do wonders for them. Of course, maybe they need to keep their populaiton numbers down. They get a bit touchy when you ask them about that.

Bothans arent always careful. They should watch what they are doing.

I just wish they would stop running in to me when I'm on the sidewalk. I'm fine but thier cars are always totaled. They also seem to run into kal -el A lot.

you forgot to mention that they wait outside the door until they here you enter the showeer and then ring your bell

Do they deliver pizzas, too?

Bothans are also very 'prolific' with very large families, I've noticed. That is where the expression "Breeding like Bothans" comes from, isn't it? Now I understand why: it is natural selection because they are a clumsy race that dies easily.
