"There's a character in the Prequels named Ki-Adi-Mundi on the Jedi High Council. During the Clone Wars and near the end of the Republic Mundi mentions a recent Separatist Droid attack on the Wookiees on Kashyyyk. Knowing /r/Prequelmemes they pretty much take any character's somewhat out of place line and turn it into a meme."
