Barneyism of the Week - The Ewok Line

In 1983 George Lucas introduced the world to the Ewoks,
a race of creatures indigenous to the second moon of Endor.

Now, the Ewoks have a rich back-story that the movie didn’t really go into.

“Barney, why don’t you just skip to the part about you and Norah?” - Ted

Fine…ah, yes…

Ultimately Ewoks split Star Wars fandom into two camps:
Those born before and those born after May 25th, 1973.

The Ewok Line!

Anyone born on this side of the Ewok Line
was at least 10 years old when Jedi came out,
and thus too old for something so cloying and cute.

Anyone born on this side loved the Ewoks because…why?
They reminded you of...?

“Our teddies? - Gina

They reminded you of your teddies, thank you Gina.

And so, by the immutable laws of the Ewok Line
my “29” year old “girl” friend who hates Ewoks
must, in fact, be no younger than 37.
