    As much as everyone seemed to hate the Jar-Jar Binks character in Star Wars, J-J is currently beating Chewy in an AOL poll. Surprised? .......
    AOL asks:
    Overall, which makes the better sidekick? .....
    Jar Jar ...... 15,495 votes (55%)
    Chewy ...... 12,393 votes (44%)
    Do you agree?

    True. Take out the thousands of people under 12 and I think that poll would like mighty different. Either way Chewbacca all the way.

    No offense to any Jar Jar fans... but Chewbacca would rip Jar Jar's fucking arms off if he ever met him [​IMG]

    Rob's got a valid point.

    Do people under 12 even remember Chewy? I mean really, they MAY have seen the "first" three star wars films but I somehow doubt many have.

    Why is there this assumption that the AOL poll participants are mostly in the pre-teen age bracket?

    I wasn't saying that kids under 12 don't matter. I was simply saying that alot of kids use aol, people who are more into the home theater and movie hobby tend to use other forms of internet then aol. The very young fans have more then likely seen episode 1 more then they have the other 4 movies so they would appeal to jar jar movie. I'm sure I have just managed to make no point, o well. Chewbacca still rocks.
