SOLVING LIFE’S LITTLE CONUNDRUMS — SOMETIMES LATER THAN SOONER!

MondayMorningScreensaverExactly one month ago I posted a photo of my new screen saver which was a photo of me and my favorite summer swinging pals Luke and Nichole swinging in the haunted shade tree in my brother’s back yard. We don’t really know if it is haunted or not, but it’s a great place for making up and telling stories. The story I was telling them was probably about the LORRFF a mythical beastie that can be seen sitting on top of the computer next to the kitten climbing up the lamp.

A number of readers thought that this creature was a member of the Muppet family, but no one was able to correctly guess his name. (Personally, it was like trying to guess Rumplestilskin’s name.) After a couple of days  of web search, even I called it quits. No one could identify the lop-eared beast!

But yesterday, my friend Becky in Houston with the help of her husband Tom correctly identified him as Salacious B. Crumb, the resident court jester for Jabba The Hutt. A visit to the Wookieepedia – the Star Wars Wiki supplied this additional information.

“Salacious B. Crumb was a Kowakian monkey-lizard employed as a court jester for Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure. Known for his shrill laugh and sadistic sense of humor, Crumb started out as little more than vermin on Kwenn Space Station during the days of the Galactic Republic, eventually escaping onto a ship belonging to Jabba the Hutt.”

“When Jabba found Crumb eating from his food bowl, he attempted to digest him, though the Kowakian monkey-lizard escaped, covering Jabba’s two henchmen with goo in the process. Jabba found this extremely amusing, and offered Crumb a role as his court jester; if Salacious managed to amuse Jabba at least once a day, he would be allowed to eat and drink as much as he wished. However, if he failed to do so, he would be killed. For over a dozen years he lived in Jabba’s Palace, playing many tricks and practical jokes on some of the palace’s regulars, and becoming one of the most disliked members of Jabba’s court.”

I also found this photo of a prototype for a un-produced plush toy.plush-salacious-1But the character was so disliked it never went into production.Salacious_Crumb_(DB)

So, where in Lucusland did my Crumb come from! I searched through 79,000 images on Google and I finally found this on sale at Amazon!
