Wash Your Hans

According to TMZ, macho 1980s and 1990s action star Harrison Ford got married to Calista Flockheart  a couple of days ago after a 7-year relationship. I grew up loving Ford movies especially Indiana Jones (except for the most recent one), Clear and Present Danger and Air Force One. But the character I obsessed over for much of my youth was Han Solo. I even tried to get my Grandma to knit me a black vest to go along with my battery powered laser blaster.

Total nerd. 

One good thing that has come out of this odd crush is that I’ve now got a couple of friends scouring the interwebs looking for interesting Star Wars-related images. The best one so far (thanks Chris) is the below. Maybe we’ll have to rebrand some of our materials to incorporate the great  “wash your Hans” messaging.
