While checking the quote in that last entry, I stumbled into a forum thread on The misconceptions you had about Star Wars, when you were a kid. It's over a hundred pages of postings (that link is to page 104), so I've only glanced at it, but it's fun. Some examples:
- like many people, i called lightsabers "light-savers" and [...] i assumed that that it was because they made light, so you could turn the lights out.
- the main misconception i had when i was younger was that the millenium falcon and the USS enterprise were the same thing.
- I thought it was "Lock asphalt into attach position". I thought they were planning on dropping concrete on the Death Star.
- the first time I saw ANH I thought General Dodonna said "propane torpedos"... well, needless to say, my folks weren't thrilled at the thought of me being near the grill for a loooooooooooooooooong time since I so love to tinker with things.
As with many of the people who posted there, when I first saw SW I thought the stormtroopers were robots. I was also confused by the name "Obi-Wan"; I thought there was supposed to be some connection between the names "Old Ben" and "Obi-Wan," maybe with the "Wan" part meaning "One" or something?
Anyway, my very favorite from the ones I saw on that forum was the first one I saw:
In ANH I thought owi-wan said "As if millions of OYSTERS had cried out in terror...and were suddenly silenced."
"'Oh oysters, come and walk with us!' the Sith Lord did beseech...."
