    Leia is a lying bitch



    In ROTJ, Leia claims that she remembers brief images of her real mother. This is impossible, as Padme dies minutes after giving birth to her. So either Leia is full of shit, or she has Jedi memory powers that allow her to remember coming out of Natalie Portman's vagina. Actually, that would be awesome.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi is a lying asshole



    In Empire, Obi-Wan tells Luke that Yoda is the Jedi who trained him. But in Phantom Menace, it's clear that Obi-Wan was actually trained by Qui-Gon Jinn. Not that you can blame him--Liam Neison also trained Batman and saved the Jews. I'd want him to train me too.

    Obi-Wan Kenobi is (still) a lying asshole



    What is it with this guy? In ROTJ, Obi-Wan tells Luke that when he met Anakin, he was already a great pilot. But when Obi-Wan met Anakin, he was a nine year-old shit who thought angels were real. Yeah, he could race a pod OK and he accidentally blows up a Trade Federation ship at the end, but neither of those really qualify him as a "great pilot."

    Yoda is a lying asshole



    In Empire, Yoda tells Luke that a Jedi only uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack. What he fails to mention, however, is that just 20 years earlier he hurled giant fucking metal pods at Emperor Palpatine. Knowledge and defense my ass.

    Han Solo is a lying asshole



    In ANH, Han says that he doesn't believe in the Force, calling it an ancient religion and equating it to magic and superstition. But just 19 years ago, the entire galaxy was defended by dozens of Jedi Knights. How could Han, who was probably a young man at that time, not believe in the Force? That would be the equivalent of someone claiming that the Reagan administration never happened.
