So, my wife and I were watching Empire Strikes Back...

...and sometimes she likes to notice things in movies that you're not supposed to. It's near the end of the movie where Lando has called for an evacuation of the city. He, Leia, Chewie and the droids are making their way to the Falcon, passing fleeing cloud city dwellers. Then my wife notices

who thinks it's really important to take his ice cream maker with him. I had to back it up and double-check. Yep, looks like an ice cream churn, all right.

We had a good laugh about that and I thought I'd share.

who mentioned anything about dvd's?

In any case, why do you find it funny that the man is taking out with him something that looks like an ice cream maker? this is space. perhaps it is his safe deposit box. the ashes of his mother in a futuristic looking container or hell.. an expensive ice cream maker?

How cool would that be to be able to use the Force on other eBayers when bidding?

Yeah, I know-- at prices I'm not willing to pay. But somewhere out there, there have to be some of these things sitting around people's attics or garages, who don't know what kind of prices they go for on Ebay. Would I pay $150 for one on Ebay? NO. Would I pay 5 bucks for one at a flea market or Good Will store? Yep.

Yeah, but not all of them were the correct models. There were many different designs of the flash.

Thanks guys. I figured someone noticed this before and made mention of it on some website, but I didn't know that Ice Cream Maker Guy was his "official" moniker.

Sometimes you just gotta have an ice cream.

Maybe theres a history behind it, like it was the last thing his wife gave him before she was killed by the Empire.

Maybe he was hiding the secret plans to the Emperors next ultimate weapon, a giant floating Gelatto of Death.

Perhaps his spaceship has no porta potty.
