Strip by: aurilee

Jason (as Obi-wan): The Jedi Council has issued you a pink laser sword.
Marcus (as Anakin): Nooo!
Jason (as Padmé): Now that we're married, I'm going to be your padawan!
Marcus (as Anakin): Nooo!
Jason (as Jar-Jar): Meesa gonna be your padawan!
Marcus (as Anakin): Yesss!
Jason (as Palpatine): Get me a slice of space pear!*
Marcus (as Anakin): Nooo!
{Peter walks in, looking confused}
Jason: We're speculating why Anakin turns to the Dark Side
Marcus: I still say it's 'cause the Sith don't have goatees.

*If you don't get this Darths and Droids joke, and you don't want to be spoiled for that comic, then you shouldn't look it up, and you shouldn't click the original comic link below.

I remember finding the original strip quite funny back when I first read it in the newspaper. It was published about a month before Episode III came out and basically the only reason anyone wanted to see that film was precisely to find out why/how Anakin turned.

Then, for whatever reason, while I was at the dentist last week I started thinking about this strip again and thought it would make for a fun iToons edit, especially if it was altered to fit the Darths and Droids universe.

How does Jar-Jar becoming Anakin's padawan push him to the Dark Side? I'll leave that as an exercise to the reader.
