That isn’t the analogy you are looking for: George Lucas is apologizing for criticizing Disney’s handling of “Star Wars” and that he had sold his characters to “white slavers.” Lucas sold Lucasfilm and its “Star Wars” franchise to Disney in 2012 for $4 billion.
What George meant to say was that Disney captured “Star Wars,” put it in a skimpy gold bikini, chained it to its bloated sluglike body, then made it dance like a slave girl.
Sorry a-boot that: An investment analyst in Canada said “vomitous” is the best word to describe 2015 for the country’s stock market. “Investors threw up and threw out everything to do with Canada,” the expert said.
We have to admit: That’s definitely put us off the maple-glazed doughnuts at Tim Hortons for a while.
Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1660, British naval administrator and member of Parliament Samuel Pepys began his famous decade-long diary.
The entry begins: “Slept in after doing tequila shots with Sir. W. Penn all night. Might watch the Rose Bowl. Still trying to get the Apple Watch I got for Christmas to work.”
