Can you stomach the bizarre sex joke hidden in Star Wars?

I'm generally a fan of the Star Wars franchise, at least in the sense that I enjoy the movies... mostly. I'm not obsessed with all of the lore, and I'm not too worried about the plot holes. The prequels were silly and rather stupid at times, but I found them mildly enjoyable when I saw them at the theater. They aren't movies that I care to re-watch though, unlike episodes four through six.

I do think the original trilogy has been put on too high of a pedestal, and that has made anything that came after it pretty tough to follow. However, I thought the last installment in the series was a really good addition to the franchise (not Rogue One, I got pretty bored midway through).

The one thing that does drive me nuts about the Star Wars universe is that all of the planets have the same gravity. Once that was pointed out to me, I can't unsee or ignore it. Not that I can't still enjoy watching them anymore, but it does cross my mind as something absolutely ridiculous whilst viewing.

Okay, great. I'm glad we got all of that out of the way.

Something I never really paid attention to were the names of characters and things... Which Cracked analyses in a bit of depth in the video below. You may be very disappointed at the lack of creativity put into what George Lucas put together.
