Chewbacca - Wookieepedia, the Star Wars Wiki (9318 words)
Chewbacca was born on Kashyyyk circa 200 BBY, the son of Attichitcuk.
Chewbacca and Han were later hired by Ramiz, a moisture farmer on Aduba-3, to protect his village from a band of local thugs known as the Cloud-Riders led by Serji-X Arrogantus.
Chewbacca regaled the tale, and the group came to the conclusion that the "Crimson Forever" stone was indeed one of those Chewie and Han had encountered—when the two stones were separated, they were extremely lethal.
Chewbacca defense - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1222 words)
The term Chewbacca defense is used to refer to any legal strategy or propaganda strategy that seeks to overwhelm its audience or jury with nonsensical arguments, as a way of confusing the audience and drowning out legitimate opposing arguments.
The term Chewbacca Defense was first used in the South Park episode "Chef Aid", which premiered on October 7, 1998 as the fourteenth episode of the second season.
Cochran's use of this defense (which is ironic, since he represents the plaintiff) is so successful that the jury finds Chef guilty of "harassing a major record label" and sets his punishment as either a two million dollar fine to be paid within twenty-four hours or, failing that, four years in prison.
