Daddy Vader Says... Because Why

Why? How? What? Whatever! All of these questions can be applied in an infinite loop by a kid in a conversation.

Why can’t I have a pony?

Because ponies cost a lot and require the right home.

But why?

Because ponies are not small animals and need a lot of food and space.

But why?

Well… because…

But why?

Um… just NO, okay. I don’t know why but NO!—but why?—Because I say so!—but why?—BECAUSE I’M YOUR FATHER! (Or mother, as the case may be.)

This has to be what Daddy Vader resorts to in an effort to end endless backtalk or pestering before his respirator explodes in his helmet.

Oh by the way, it doesn’t work. Nothing does.

  4. Too funny. Just wonder if the Lucas peeps will be breathing down your neck for use of their lovable bad dude.

      Thanks. Not too worried about Star Destroyers entering my atmosphere for a few reasons. It’s my original art; it’s parody; and despite all the heat George Lucas takes for so many things, he’s actually incredibly rad about spoofs. Also, Charlie and I are good friends with the Mouse.
