Throughout the original Star Wars Trilogy, Han Solo had the looming threat of Jabba The Hutt looming over his head. Because he owed money to the intergalactic gangster, he was always one second away from abandoning the Rebellion so that he could remain in hiding. Jabba dispatched bounty hunter Boba Fett after him and when finally caught, Han was captured and frozen in carbonite, needing Luke and the gang to rescue him in Return of the Jedi. When we finally met him, he was a larger than life (and disgusting) space slug that ran his own palace under his iron fist and was finally stopped by Leia. But, was he really a bad guy?
B-Siders over at Break.com just can’t leave a poor Hutt alone. Isn’t it enough that some Jedi wanna-be and his friends came and trashed Jabba’s place, killed his favorite Rancor house pet, ruined his pleasure barge, and choked him with his promise chain?
No one ever looks at it from Jabba’s point of view. Solo owed him money, if the story was on today’s television the repossession of the Millenium Falcon would have been filmed on the reality “Galactic Repo” show. Instead, poor “Jabba the Business Creature” is the bad guy. Let’s make fun of him and his disabilities.

Confectionary masters, Rosebud cakes have brought us this weeks nerd cake of the week, the crime lord of Tattooine Jabba The Hutt. Though awesome and accurate I do wonder why Jabba is poised on a persian carpet as opposed to his steel and stone slab?
