I was watching RETURN OF THE JEDI the other day while talking to Petey about Shaquille O'Neal's thumb surgery.
Petey has had thumb surgery 4 times, so I was holding a natural curiosity with regard to possible recovery times for Shaquille O'Neal.
As Petey showed me the various positions the doctors had placed his thumb inside the casts in, I exclaimed quite memorably the following:
SHAQ'S THUMB NO BOTHER...!
You see, it was the part of RETURN OF THE JEDI was Jabba the Hutt was forcing our heroes (Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, R2D2, and C-3PO) to become sad about their pending death sentence inside the Sarlac Pit.
During this portion of the movie, Jabba says:
NO BOTHA WOOKIE CHEWBACCA...! HO HO HO...!
What he is really saying - and I was determined to explain this to Petey - was that he would no longer waste time on these foolish so-called heroes, and he did not sweat them.
"Do not bother with the Wookie Chewbacca, for he cannot harm us," might be the literal English translation.
Such is the case with Shaq's thumb. It appears as if he will need surgery, which he already had this week.
In this scenario, Delonte West is Luke Skywalker.
