Yes, Twitter’s latest obsession is with The Mandalorian’s adorable green fuzzball baby Yoda, leading to the quite obvious question of the infant’s lineage and, if it is the scion of the Jedi Grand Master, who the child’s other parent might be. The adorable puppet was introduced at the end of the first episode of the latest Star Wars series as the quarry of the titular bounty hunter, immediately becoming all anyone watching the show can talk about.
More often than not, Twitter can seem like it condenses the very worst of humanity down to a mere 280 characters, but every once in a while something comes along that relieves the negativity and unites people in collective obsession and depraved humor. In the run up to the release of Avengers: Endgame it was the “Thanus” theory, hypothesizing the heroes’ victory by a shrunken Scott Lang flying up Thanos’ anus and then growing in size, killing the Mad Titan as he does so.
The hashtag of #YodaBonedIt (not specifically referring to Yoda having had sex with Pennywise the Dancing Clown, although he’s probably in there somewhere) has spread across Twitter, suggesting characters and creatures across a vast and improbable spectrum with whom Yoda might have gotten together. Some suggestions from the annals of Star Wars include the obvious suggestion of Yaddle, the only other member of Yoda’s species previously seen and also happens to be female, as well as Greedo, a womp rat and a thala-siren. Other declared possibilities include the Rabbit of Caerbannog from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Gizmo from Gremlins, Sonic the Hedgehog (including a “before” and “after” of the movie’s two CGI version), Nightwing, Gamera, Bugs Bunny in drag, the Eye of Sauron, the Creature From the Black Lagoon, Short Circuit’s Number 5, and an avocado. Apparently, Yoda really got around in his nine centuries.
Today's question of the day is...— GAIL SIMONE (@GailSimone) November 20, 2019
WHAT/WHO DID YODA BONE?
Please use hashtag#YodaBonedIt
Tracing trends is often difficult due to their rapid proliferation across the wildfire of the internet, but his one appears to have originated with comics writer Gail Simone. She has a track record of starting off inappropriate conversations that snowball in degeneracy, and her tweet on the subject makes a specific plea to use the hashtag. Her own suggestions on the topic include Flipper, Labyrinth’s Hoggle, Muffit the robot dog from the ‘70s Battlestar Galactica, the Thunderbirds, original Tonight Show presenter Steve Allen, and the entire crew of Splash Mountain boat the Zip-a-Dee-Lady.
This new delve into the dark side of people’s imaginations also raises some other topics. The question must be asked whether or not Yoda would be enough of a hypocrite to lecture Anakin on the Jedi vows of celibacy after having broken them himself (the chronology would put him doing so about 20 years before Attack of the Clones takes place). Also, since we know so little about Yoda’s species (even including its name), it’s possible they don’t even reproduce sexually. But as surreal as it might be, the idea of Yoda laying an egg is far less interesting than wildly speculating the weird and wonderful possibilities of who he might have hooked up with.
