Chewbacco: Use the Force to Put a Pinch Between Your Cheek and Gum

by


Despite being named after the Russian/Ukranian word for “dog”, I’ve always thought that Chewbacca’s name sounded like a hurried version of “chewing tobacco.” Apparently artist Terry Border thinks the same, so he made this literal interpretation to share with the world:

Terry describes his 4-inch tall Chewbacco sculpture simply as follows: “Ingredients- Plastic snuf container, wire armature, dried chewing tobacco and glue. ‘Belt’- electrical and duct tape. “ It should be noted that Chewbacco still can cause gum disease and cause cancer. He can also pull your arms out of their sockets.

If you want Chewbacco up on your mantel, good news. The carcinogenic Chewie is up for auction now over on eBay with a current bid of just $50. Millennium Falcon spittoon not included.
