Etymology is the 890th xkcd comic.

Explanation Edit

This comic is set when Luke first means Han Solo in Star Wars. A long time ago in a galaxy far away, there are no falcons. Why then is Han's ship named after an animal neither of them have ever heard of?

Mouseover textEdit

"For some reason, my childhood suspension of disbelief had no problem with the fact that this ancient galaxy is full of humans, but was derailed by language. There's no Asia OR Europe there, so where'd they get all the Indo-European roots?"
