Dirtiest sounding name in "Star Wars" galaxy

According to Wizard magazine readers the winner is "Probe Droid."

The only other finalist I heard of was "Count Dooku." "The Emperor's Hand," "Kin Fisto," and "The Last Handmaiden" ... whaaa? They must be from novels and/or comics. I've only seen the movies.

Kin Fisto was the assassin with the long rifle who tried to take out Amidalla with nasty centipedes.

Um no, Kit (not Kin) Fisto was the jedi with the medusa-like hair and the large black eyes. He went with Mace Windu to arrest Palpatine and was slain by him.

The assassin who tried to take out Amidala was Zam Wessel.

The Emperor's Hand originated with the Timothy Zahn "Heir to the Empire" trilogy, and the Last Handmaiden was a character in the computer game "Knights of the Old Republic 2:The Sith Lords"

I totally win the biggest geek award. Also, happy Star Wars day - 30 years ago today.

You're right about Kit Fisto, Carnie. I played Lego Star Wars on PS2 last night and realized my error as soon as the character screen came up. Negative geek points for me - except for the fact that I own Lego Star Wars for PS2.
