Bonjour mon prouts!
We’ve got another blog for you today and if you’ve been waiting for a Star Wars related post, well you didn’t have to wait too long! As you may or may not know one of my favorite aspects of the Star Wars universe are the droids. C-3PO and R2-D2 are the absolute best of course but where would that far, far away galaxy be without the ubiquitous gonk droid? And who could forget the menacing Imperial probe droids? Even the group of notorious bounty hunters summoned by Darth Vader to find the Millennium Falcon was comprised of two droids; IG-88 and 4-LOM! Hell I even enjoy the comically inept antics of the prequel’s battle droids! Roger, roger! And now with the Force Awakens we’ve got the spunky and loyal BB-8! Which I’m fairly certain is just a small robotic puppy inside a robotic puppy play ball.
Droids! They’re awesome!
In the intervening time I’ve been away from this blog I’ve still been trying to leave my mark on the world and these days there is no better legacy then creating a meme! Right??
I mean meme creators are probably some of our most well-known internet celebrities! I think we’re all familiar with the creator of the “Keep Calm and Carry On” meme, the British Government. I’m no expert of course but I’m guessing it was that gem of internet masterwork which made that Empire what it is today.
Then there’s the photographer behind the “Ermahgerd” meme whose name escapes me at the moment of writing this but I assure you I know their name and speak of them often, as I’m sure you do as well.
And of course let’s not forget the big daddy of them all the Trollface meme! I don’t think I even need to tell any of you who created that heavy hitter, they are after all a household name!
Anywho so several months ago I was struck with the idea for a hilariously immortal meme which I could combine with one of my favorite elements of the Star Wars movies!
You: “Wait Josh does that mean it’s a droid meme?”
Me: “You’re damn right it’s a droid meme! Now get out of that oil bath and take a look at what late night ideas in conjunction with boredom produces!”
You see the joke here is that the droid has been used in a way that might void any type of theoretical warranty the manufacturer would have provided which may have been stipulated in the fine print of some long discarded user agreement
Protocol droids shouldn’t have their parts swapped and used in battle, it’s all there in the user agreement
Tusken Raiders shoving the droid off a cliff instantly voids the warranty.
A droid chassis to carry your guts around should not encounter blaster fire.
“Use aboard starships” does not mean “trudging through swamps”!
I hate sand.
So go ahead and take the “Voided Warranty” meme out into the world and spread it throughout the interwebs, repurpose it, reapply it, and make it your own. Put it on a picture of you and your toaster or maybe plaster it on a picture of Michigan’s governor next to Flint’s water treatment facilities!
The important thing here is that by cannibalizing the hard work of the creators of Star Wars I’m sure this’ll finally bring me the creative recognition I’ve soooooo longed for!

That is all!
