What would happen if Star Wars was set in Glasgow.
would look roughly the same except he'd only be about
5ft tall, from Blackhill and called Shug. He'd have the same
amount of body hair but would also have tattoos, would
permanently smell of drink and invariably sport a Rangers top.
Obi-Wan Kenobi would invariably be referred to as Chief or Big
Yin by his cohorts. People trying to start a fight with him
would address him as Wanky-Nobby.
Darth Vader would referred to as 'Auld Helmet Heid' or in
moments of stress 'That Dome-Heided Basturd'.
R2D2 would refuse to go out on the streets after 10pm because of
the number of drunks who would try to stuff chip papers in his
head casing or piss on him. He would also refuse to go near
groups of wee boys at any time because of the high risk of being
spray painted/dumped in front of a speeding train/set on fire.
Although proficient in over 3500 languages C3P0 would still be
unable to understand anything anyone from the East End of
Glasgow said. He would regularly get beaten up for being a
'greetin-faced poof fae Milngavie'. The Millenium Falcon would
have static strips, tinted windscreens and extra-flared exhaust
ports. It would have a Daily Record I Love Scotland sticker in
the back window and a saltire bumper sticker.
Princess Leia would get captured by Darth Vader because it's
hard to run very fast when you're wearing 5inch platform heels
and a tiny silver mini-skirt which keeps hiking up over your
arse every two steps. And you've been a heavy smoker since you
best way to detroy the Death Star would not necessarily be a
desperate all out attack. Two easy ways would be
* Alter its orbit so it passed through Bridgeton and tell the
locals it was full of kafflicks
* Leave it unattended in Easterhouse.

"There's no mystical energy field controls my destiny."
"The Force?!! D'youse think ah came doon wi the rain?!"
"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good

and auld rubbish, wee man. Get yersel' a decent shooter"
Darth Vader trying to shoot down Luke Skywalker
"The Force is strong in this one"
"Stop shooglin' ya wee b*stad!"
"You're a little short for a Stormtrooper aren't you?"
"Ah didny think they took short-erses in the polis?"
"This bucket of bolts is never going to get us past that
blockade." "Wuv goat NAE chance in this pile o' sh*te"
"Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerer's ways, Lord
Vader." "You think you're that hard, Vader so ye do. Well we're
