    Default "nerf-herder" or "moof-milker": which is the graver insult in STAR WARS?

    In the STAR WARS Galaxy so long ago and far, far away, if you're going to insult somebody, you're probably going to call him/her a nerf-herder or a moof-milker, but which of the two insults do you think is likely the more demeaning and degrading?

    I must confess, when I saw THE LAST JEDI, I was wondering if that creature that Luke was milking on Ahch-To was a moof (it wasn't; it's a thala siren). The idea that it *could have been* a moof had me in stitches, though, because I kept thinking that Luke really ended up becoming what Han likely called him on more than one occasion.

    I think the prequels also had the "sleemo" insult. It shows up in TPM (Anakin addressing Sebulba before the race) and AOTC (When Zam is killed).


    And of course the classic "Bantha Poodoo"

    Being called a giant pile of poop has to be worse than being called slime, an uneducated farmer, or a rancher of smelly alien bovine.

    The subtitles list it as "Fodder" but Lucas probably thought it sounded funny enough, hence it showing up a few times in the PT.

    I thought Bantha poodoo (poop) and Bantha fodder (food) were separate insults? Isn't fodder used by Jabba in ROTJ?

    Jabba says "Bantha poodoo" in Huttese, and the film's subtitles say "Bantha fodder".

    Did that change? I don't doubt you for a second but there I times I watch the movie, think I see something different, watch the DVD version, then the THX version and all 3 scenes are different.

    No, it's always been the same translation.
