Sunday Rest: Ewok. Word Not To Use Today.

I've been fond of  Ewoks for many years:

but they do sound inconveniently like electrical devices for creating stir-fries, don't they.

Sunday Rest: Ewok. This species of mammaloid hunter-gatherer from the moon Endor was first described by George Lucas in his Star Wars series of films. The name was based on the Native American tribe, the Miwok, which has for a long time lived in the Redwood Forest which was used as a background for filming.
