at least i cant think of the top of my head anyone who went the cheap, crappy way- getting shot in the back when they went paying attention. stormtroopers don't count
Two blonde girls were working for the city public works department. One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind her and fill the hole in. They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day without rest, one girl digging a hole, the other girl filling it in again.
An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn't understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole digger, 'I'm impressed by the effort you two are putting in to your work, but I don't get it -- why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up again?'
The hole digger wiped her brow and sighed, 'Well, I suppose it probably looks odd because we're normally a three-person team. But today the girl who plants the trees called in sick
here is another:
(A few parts censored)
A jumbo jet is making its final approach to Tampa Airport.
The pilot comes on the intercom, 'This is your Captain. We're on our final descent into Tampa . I want to thank you for flying with us today and hope you enjoy your stay in the Tampa Bay area'.
He forgets to switch off the intercom. Now the whole plane can hear his conversation from the cockpit. The copilot can be heard saying to the pilot, 'So, Skip, whatcha got planned while we're in Tampa ?'
'Well,' says the skipper, 'first I'm gonna check into the hotel, take a big ol' crap.... then I'm gonna take that new stewardess with the huge t!@$ out for dinner.... I'm gonna wine and dine her, take her back to my room and give her a ride on the baloney pony all night long.'
Aghast and amused, everyone on the plane hears this and immediately begins looking up and down the aisle, trying to figure out who this new stewardess is that the pilot's talking about.
Meanwhile, the new stewardess is seated at the very back of the plane. She is so embarrassed that she starts running toward the cockpit to turn the intercom off. Halfway down the aisle, she trips over an old lady's bag and down she goes.
The old lady leans over and says: 'No need to hurry, dear.
He's gotta land the plane and take a $#!t first."
I had another one, but I will refrain from posting it, due to several reasons
After playing Bounty Hunter for 4 years, I have always wondered, did Roz make an appearance anytime in the Star Wars cannon outside of BH? I have had the question, how did Jango become affiliated with her, and when?
Truthfully, and this may be totally uncanon to what some works may have about him, but my personal image of Boba is that the money actually means NOTHING to him whatsoever. If it was JUST about the credits he could have retired years before, or moved up from actual field work and just hired stringers to do the work for him; how many Bounty Hunters WOULDN'T join a hunter's guild led by the Fett??
My own personal image of Boba Fett, especially when he was younger and during the Original Trilogy years, is of a man trying to live up to a man and a code that he never 100% understood. Jango of course would be his idol, and he's doing everything in his power to live up to that image cast in his mind. He was also instructed in the code and ways of the Mando'ade, although not fully. His drive to live up to these childhood inspirations have been all that kept him alive after Jango's death.
In my mind, the money serves only two purposes. One, as proof both to himself and the galaxy at large, that he his the greatest hunter in the business. And two, as a means to fund his continued unrivaled status as the best. Past that, he's totally indifferent to it.
That's always been my image of him
Boba has stated in one of the KT Legacy of the Force books that Bob's whole life is devoted to living up to his father's image

Wow, I just got another one!!
The IRS decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the IRS office.
The IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney.
The auditor said, 'Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, Which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I'm not sure the IRS finds that believable.'
I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it,' says Grandpa. 'How about a demonstration? '
The auditor thinks for a moment and said, 'Okay. Go ahead.'
Grandpa says, 'I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.'
The auditor thinks a moment and says, 'It's a bet.'
Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it.
The auditor's jaw drops.
Grandpa says, 'Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.'
Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn't blind, so he takes the bet.
Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye.
The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.
'Want to go double or nothing?' Grandpa asks
'I'll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.'
The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there's no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.
Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on the other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the auditor's desk.
The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major loss into a break even.
But Grandpa's attorney moans and puts his head in his hands.
'Are you okay?' the auditor asks.
'Not really,' says the attorney. 'This morning, when Grandpa told me he'd been summoned for an audit, he bet me twenty-five thousand dollars that he could come in here and p!$$ all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it.

Will I live to see 80?
I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and
Exhaustive lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age.
A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him,
'Do you think I'll live to be 80?'
He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?
''Oh no,' I replied. 'I'm not doing
Drugs, either!' Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and
I said, 'No, my former doctor said that all red meat is very
Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing,
Hiking, or bicycling?'
'No, I don' t,' I said.
He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of s%x?'
'No,' I said.
He looked at me and said, 'Then, why do you even give a s#!t?'

Bounty Hunter 2 should be about Boba this time. There has not been a single game yet that focuses solely about Boba Fett yet. Boba has more depth than Jango and that would be a strength for the storyline. I would not even mind an ESB-related Bounty Hunter.
don't kill me, but my favorite musicians/bands are the Duke Ellington and Glenn Miller orchestras. You can't beat Take the 'A' Train, I've Got A Gall (in Kalamazoo), It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Aint Got That Swing)
Plus, The Police is also a great band.
Good point. I remember about Fett's code now. He didn't drink often or do spice either.
But, he would not let killing someone get in the way of his plans.
as Boba has said- 'Drugs are an insult to the body' (loosely quoted)
