Wookie: An eight-foot-tall hairy man-beast that walks, grunts, and navigates spaceships like a normal human being. Can often be seen traveling with rogues. Best known for being a part of the Star Wars universe.
So, you’ve got your eyes on a wookie that you want to pet? I’ll give you some good tips on how to do this, but I must also encourage you to question whether this is a good idea.
Step 1: Find your wookie. It’s difficult to pet a wookie if you can’t find it.
Step 2: Take caution when approaching a wookie. Wookies are temperamental creatures that can tear off your limbs if you disrespect them.
Step 3: Ask the wookie if you can pet him/her/it. They are sentient creatures; they will let you know if you ask.
Step 3a: Wookies don’t actually speak, they grunt. Listen closely to make sure you’re clear on their answer.
Step 4: If the wookie says yes, then go ahead and pet him/her/it. If the answer says no, then refrain from petting this wookie and find yourself another wookie.
Warning: Remember, petting a wookie when he/she/it says no is very dangerous. Wookies can rip arms, legs, and other body parts off your body without much trouble. They are as powerful as bears. It is very difficult to pet anything, much less a wookie, if you’re missing your hands. Don’t let a wookie rip off your hands. Be respectful of his/her/its wishes. If the wookie says no, don’t pet its furry hide.
Notes: Because wookies don’t speak, they grunt, it’s helpful to know the difference between their yesses and nos.
Yes: A “yes” in the wookie language is any grunt that lasts for 2 exact seconds.
No: A “no” in the wookie language is any grunt that lasts for 1.98 seconds.
Keep this in mind before you ask the wookie if you can pet him/her/it. It might not only allow you to fulfill your dream of petting a wookie, but it could also save your life.
Step 5: In the event that you do get to pet a wookie, please go see your licensed therapist for a checkup. Wookies are imaginary creatures that exist only in movies and costume shops.
