Behold My Jedi-Like Powers of Persuasion

Today on Twitter I posted a poll (which incidentally is still active as of this writing):
Which led to many spirited comments about Baby Yoda’s eating habits, the sentience of porgs, and whether Chewbacca should have eaten that porg he cooked up, regardless of the aghast looks of other porgs. This naturally let me to say:
And LO AND BEHOLD:
This is naturally the best piece of art that has ever existed, and
I am proud to have played a part in bringing this truth to a hurting and needful world although it existed before I asked for it, I still feel pleasure in knowing my wishes were answered. Please enjoy “Baby Yoda Eating a Porg” in good health.
(PS: Here’s a link to the artist’s site if you’d like to see more of his stuff.)
Not only would Baby Yoda eat a porg, he would chase it with a bowl of porg soup.
The link to the art doesn’t appear to work anymore, but if you go to the artist’s site and check out “News,” it’s in the first article.
Hopefully stable URL to news page for posterity: https://www.tomsavagestudios.com/news/archives/12-2019
In other news, future anthropologists will be perplexed by all the references to “Baby Yoda” that turn up in this era’s media, while they find no images of him because Disney+’s archives were lost.
I updated the post to restore the art.
YA DAMN RIGHT HE’D EAT A PORG!
Pfff. They looked all butt-hurt in that movie when Chewbacca was cooking one. But look at their eyes – facing forward – they’re predators.
“They look like little children! … They’re so cute…”
“Have you even watched the show?”
I cannot tell you how happy I am that I don’t know anything about Baby Yoda, aside from some pictures that I’ve seen on Kovalic’s Twitter feed, and I really don’t know what a Porg is. And I am quite content to keep it that way.
In the words of my 14 year old niece: You’ll be aaiight!!!
Oh John you had me at hello.
