- ―Anonymous Sand Person many, many times
Sand People, or Tusken Raiders (yes, they all raided at some point in their lives), were a germophobic race of sentient silicon-based humanoids native to Tatooine. Despite a reputation for engaging elaborate philosophic dialogs, they only spoke in gargles and grunts to outsiders. Sand People wore sack-cloth robes and frequently showered themselves in ashes, leading some ethnologists to theorize that they were in mourning. However, when approached to learn the truth of this, Sand People would just rip their heads clean off with their spear thingies and then raid the ethnologists' landspeeder for spare parts.
They were known to torment their captives with Sand People torture. It has been theorized many times that Sand People are in fact gay because all anyone ever hears out of their creepy faces is a really donkey-ass scream. You'd think they were getting raped or something. Undoubtedly, though, their greatest failure came when they were scared off by *sigh* some crazy old dude, they ran like pussies. Later that week, they came back, and in greater numbers, but it was too late to save face.

If you switch the first letter of "Tuscan" and the first letter of "Raiders" the product is "Ruscan Taders."
