Hey C3-PO, is that a hard drive, or are you just glad to see me?

Anybody else remember Star Wars cards? Eight or so cards and a petrified stick of bubble gum in a waxpaper pack.

I remember as a kid there was a rumor that one of the cards featured the robot C3-PO “poppin’ a Boner” as we so charmingly called it back then.

Well, twenty years later the debate rages on. Of my circle of friends, one group claims it never happened, one group claims it was a disgruntled graphic artist at work, one group claims it was a misplaced thumb.

So, anybody got the lowdown on this? Was 'Threepio packing an interface cable? Was his walk not the only stiff thing about him? A search of the net with the keywords “C3-PO” and “Penis” produced many interesting things, but hardly what I was after…



You may never forgive me for this, but here goes:

The rest of us may never forgive you either!
