What the Hell is the Meat Planet?

Dr. J. and the Lil Med Students were building a new Lego set on Monday. It was the escape pod that C3PO and R2D2 used to flee the Tantive IV at the beginning of Star Wars (Episode IV).

So when we were building it, Lil Med Student had an epiphany. He asked,”Is this the ship that R2D2 and C3PO took to the Meat Planet?”

Dr. J. was all,”Meat Planet, what the Hell is a Meat Planet?”

“Daddy, the Meat Planet is the planet that Anakin and Luke grew up on! It’s the Meat Planet, it’s made of meat!”

As you can see below, the Moon may be made of green cheese, but Tatooine is clearly made of meat.

About Dr. J.

Dr. J. was born the son of a New Atlantean sharecropper who cornered the market on notoriously delicious seaweed Himanthalia elongata (popularly known as Thongweed). With his newly minted seaweed fortune, Mr. J. the Elder sent his son to attend the Academy of Sorcery, Alchemy and Surgery where the good doctor apprenticed with the finest sorcerer surgeons in New Atlantis. Dr. J.'s areas of expertise grew to include bleeding, cutting for stone, trephination, medical divination with outstanding spatial and temporal resolution, cybernetic sorcery and medicinal alchemy. When King Orin of Atlantis fell ill with the Ick, Dr. J. stepped in with an elixir he devised from a combination of minerals, herbs and saps. Curing the king, Dr. J. gained significant notoriety which afforded him the luxury of time to devote himself to his side hobbies which include porpoise racing, the study of supply-side economics, cooking and raising his lovely merchildren alongside his lovely bride the archconservative Mrs. Dr. J.
