Jedi Presbyterians

frame from a badly pirated version of Revenge of the Sith

This picture was taken from an appallingly bad pirated version of "The Revenge of the Sith" that had been dubbed in Chinese and then translated back into English. In the process the phrase "Jedi Council" became "Presbyterian Church".

Apparently the dutiful translator also ignored the fact that the opening scroll was already in English and provided a new title for the film: "Backstroke of the West."

Excuse me, I must rush for another round of committee meetings with the local Jedi Council.

Thanks to this post, which referred to this one.

I knew session meetings were bad, but to turn someone to the Dark Side?

Ok, maybe....

They are not all that bad. I once attended a session meeting at which no one drew their light-saber. Honest!
