Yes, you read that right.
We have a whiteboard in our house where every week prior to this first Friday, I will write “FAF!” I do this to remind myself that I need to color our monthly piece, otherwise I’ll completely forget.
Every month, my husband asks, “What’s FAF?” And every month, I say, “Fan Art Friday…where I have to color in the Star Wars coloring book and do the same picture that Mei-Mei (the blogger friend I’ve never met) does and we compare/contrast.” And every month he goes, “Oh, right okay,” and then forgets by the next month where we do this whole exchange once more.
Two days ago, I looked at our whiteboard and found some new wording:
I rolled my eyes but then I couldn’t stop giggling. So now I can’t get Fan Fart Friday out of my head. I may be forever scarred/changed by this.
This month’s picture was chosen by Yours Truly because whenever I passed by it, I thought it had to be some sort of huge joke by the editors/artists/authors. In my mind, Lucasfilm had a survey that said, “We are creating a Star Wars coloring book to jump on the adult coloring craze. Please cast your votes on what you’d like to see in it.”
And some doofus thought it would be hilarious to have a Super Battle Droid surrounded by roses. Little did they know that LFL would actually approve this picture!
(Okay, I know that’s probably not how it went at all, but in my head, that’s what happened)
So here it is! What a strange, obscure picture. I’m really neutral on this, other than I think it’s hilarious. It reminds me of the book, The Story of Ferdinand. I read it when I was a child and it was about a bull that did not want to be in the ring, but instead, outside smelling the flowers. That’s what this Super Battle Droid wants to do as well…sit and smell the roses, not kill people!
Don’t forget to check out Mei-Mei’s rendition as well, once it’s up. Not sure if we’ll be doing another one any time soon just because Mei-Mei’s little boy is due at the end of the month! Make sure to congratulate her. We’ll see if she ever wants to return to this world of coloring.
Happy Fan Fart Friday!
