Weird Dream

I had a really weird dream last night. Maybe it was the pepperoni pizza from Godfather's. Anyway, for the uninitiated (as in not huge Star Wars geeks) Admiral Ackbar is the fishy-looking guy in Return of the Jedi who makes the astute observation that the Empire had set up the rebels for a trap. Here he is in one of the outtakes for that film:

He's a real funny guy.
Anyway, in my dream last night I was at some kind of dinner, and he was no longer Admiral Ackbar, but Reverend Ackbar, and he led the prayer before the meal. Weird. And everyone was talking through his prayer, which pissed me off so I yelled at everyone to shut up . . . in the middle of the prayer. So then everyone was mad at me for interrupting the prayer. All was well, though, because the good pastor came up to me and said he appreciated the sentiment.

  1. That's a good interpretation, quite amusing and wholly viable. Let me give you mine:

    1. A couple months ago I went to a church service at my fiancee's church. They had a guest pastor, who seemed pretty good at what he does. It annoyed me, however, because it seemed that there were a lot of people talking during the sermon and goofing around. I wanted to get up and scream (wow, that's a direct quote from one of Charlie Manson's girls in their Dateline show).

    2. I've seen Return of the Jedi entirely too many times, and the website Fark has many, many Photoshopped images with Admiral Ackbar in them, and I've been spending way too much time looking at them. Fark alone, however, can not account for my perfect memory of the good reverend's voice.
