I'm gonna need help for my next post. Does anyone know what a nerf is or what it looks like? They don't show them in the movies, do they?

Unfortunately, I don't have a pic, but here's the blurb from "Ask the Jedi Council", which has long since disappeared from

Q: In Episode IV, Leia calls Han a scruffy nerf herder. What's a nerf?

A: Let's just say that this wasn't the highest compliment in the galaxy. The quote is actually from The Empire Strikes Back, and in full, the lovely if hot-tempered Princess spit out, "Why, you stuck up...half-witted...scruffy-looking nerf-herder!"

Nerfs, like certain hotshot pilots, are temperamental and cantankerous. The comparison stops there, however. These domesticated herb-eaters are raised for their delicious meat. That's a good thing because they have one of the most foul odors this side of the Galactic Core. The rangy, supple creatures have long fur covering their muscular bodies and dull, curved horns. They also tend to spit at their handlers, which probably doesn't work wonders for the dispositions of the nerf herders either.

You know what would be funny? Using Nerf footballs or other Nerf products.

Imagine a nerf herder herding a bunch of Nerf soccer balls across the plain.

There was a nerf herder and his flock in one of the Star Wars Tales comics. I'm at sea now, so I can't check, but they basically look like cows, I believe.
