Episode 152: Miss Communication


Snacks are of course incredibly important, nay, essential to the roleplaying experience. Being part of a balanced diet, it's essential to have representatives of all four basic food groups: sugar, salt, fat, and caffeine.

Interestingly, these are usually combined into the pairs (sugar, caffeine) - cola or other caffeinated fizzy drinks - and (salt, fat) - pizza, potato chips, other assorted snack foods. The pairing (sugar, fat), while perfectly valid - e.g. cakes, doughnuts, ice cream - is not seen anywhere near as much. And its counterpart (salt, caffeine) is just too bizarre to contemplate.

And then there's (sugar, salt) and (fat, caffeine), which we don't even want to think about.


Qui-Gon: So Annie's in your drama class? She's really good at the roleplaying stuff.
Obi-Wan: Yeah. I wasn't sure if she'd be into it.
Qui-Gon: Great idea of yours to bring her along.
Obi-Wan: She was the only one who didn't laugh when I said I took the class to improve my gaming skills.
Qui-Gon: Does her... boyfriend go to the drama class too?
Obi-Wan: She... Oh, Sally, that was quick.
Jar Jar: Mesa brungs da snacks! When da others getting here?
Obi-Wan: Any minute. Ah, there's Pete now.
R2-D2: Hey guys. Oooh, jelly babies.
Obi-Wan: So Jim, er... regarding our earlier conversation... Were you interested?
Qui-Gon: In what?
Obi-Wan: In... that game... with that person? They aren't in a game at the moment.
R2-D2: Game? What game?
Qui-Gon: Why would I start another game? This one's exciting enough!
