an Ewok dropping to one knee in prayer

That's Teebo the Ewok, and he's Tebowing - i.e., mimicking the idiotic prayer pose of so-so quarterback Tim Tebow. Tebow may not be the only Christian football player in the league, but his mid-field antics have made him the poster boy for religion in sports. Because apparently whatever Bible he grew up reading doesn't include Matthew 6:5-8:

5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee.

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

In other words, Jesus says "don't put on a public show, you assclown."

The figure can't actually bend well enough to legitimately Tebow - we had to do that in Photoshop. So while we were at it, we dropped him into Ralph McQuarrie's concept art of the Ewok village.

We also changed "Teeboing" to "Teebo-ing" in the text because it ended up looking like "Tee-Boing," which makes no sense at all.
