- Bishop: "May the Bird be with you."
- The Brotherhood: "And with your bird."
- — A Brotherhood service
Brotherhood of the Bird, also referred to as The Big Bird Communism by the non-believers (due to this being the original name for the Brotherhood), was a religion surrounding a holy parakeet that was able to use the Force in amazing ways, only known to his followers as "Big Bird." His original prime dictation was to learn how to spell. Other beliefs included singing, dancing and going against Bob Barker's "spay and neuter your pets" teachings. Over the years, the religion adapted to become something much more. As Bird's power grew, the Brotherhood became more of an alternative to the Jedi and Sith orders. Teaching the ways of the medium-colored side of the Force, a powerful empire rose, only to be done away with by Big Bird's rival.
When Big Bird was hatched on Nestus in 69 BBY, he found himself alone as his siblings were eaten by hunters, the sight of which left him mentally ill for many years to come. Big Bird flew to an unknown asteroid where he lived until 55 BBY. There, his mental illness got the better of him. Believing himself to be the almighty lord C-3PO of Endor, he developed his own religion. At first, it was named the "The Big Bird Communism," but after dealing with eighteen wars against himself, he decided to change it to the much more appropriate "Brotherhood of the Bird."
In 55 BBY, Big Bird found himself flying to Tatooine where he met a young Jawa with a name that could not be pronounced in human tongue. Not knowing what to call the him, Bird simply called him "Jawa." Living with "Jawa" for so many years began getting Bird's mind back on track. Because of this, Big Bird was finally hired for a job. While working for Watto in his shop along with some bratty kid, a Jedi Knight by the name of Qui-Gon Jinn came in, looking for ship parts. Believing that the parakeet had much Force potential, the Jedi tested his midichlorian count. The test showed that Big Bird was the "Chosen One," a Jedi urban legend saying that this person would destroy the Sith, bring balance to the Force and shit like that. Bird was quite disturbed by this heavy burden, and instead handed the job off to the bratty kid. Bird decided to retire and settle down with Jawa.
In 23 BBY, Bird went out into the Tatooine deserts to pick mushrooms with Shmi Skywalker when the two were brutally captured by Sand People. Tortured for a year, the bratty kid, who turned out to be the son of Shmi, returned to save her. Big Bird pleaded with him, and the kid freed the parakeet. Returning to Jawa, he claimed to have seen a vision of the future. In this vision, Bird was teaching hundreds of illiterates how to spell. Bird knew what he had to do; Teach the word of the Brotherhood of the Bird.
Founding an empireEdit
For the first two months, Bird taught many how to read. This changed when he realized he was too powerful. Instructing Jawa, his new apprentice of the Force, to find suitable members for the Brotherhood. Jawa brought back dozens of apprentices, but one caught his eye most of all; Elmo. Bird instructed Jawa to teach Elmo in the ways of the Force. By the end of his training, Big Bird instructed Jawa to activate his well-known juicer and try to juice the apprentice. Elmo passed the test, and was promoted. Bird ordered Elmo to kill Jawa, in which he did with ease. However, Elmo was deemed too evil to become an official member of the Brotherhood, and was instead sent to Darth Small. However, he was named honorary prophet and was considered to be Big Bird's Number Two in place of Jawa.
Visions from the futureEdit
- "You wanna know why they call me Big Bird? It's my penis size, bee-atch! That's right, it's huge, it's feathery, and it's spectacular! That's right, all the birds want it. You probably want it too, Phil. That's right. **sniff** It's the shizz-nit, right? Yeah."
- ―Big Bird, during one of his many rants
While appearing on the Dr. Phil Show, Big Bird was questioned by Dr. Phil about his sanity (or lack thereof). Bird was convinced he was too big of a star to talk about his sanity (or lack thereof), and instead, quickly changed the topic to the size of his penis. Bird was quickly thrown off, still convinced he was too big of a star. Things quickly took a turn for the worst when Big Bird got into drugs. Hopped up on acid, he started seeing visions of a brown, hairy elephant named Aloysius Snuffleupagus. Snuffy "told" Bird about how pretzels make him thirsty, which was enough to make the imaginary creature a prophet of the Brotherhood. Yeah, that's right. Somebody who doesn't exist becomes a prophet. This move was met with much criticism as some members converted to G*nkism.
Ending an empireEdit
Considered to be an alternative of Jedi and Sith, many would join the Brotherhood for answers they would not find. Both former Jedi and Sith alike would join on occasions, and would be taught how to use the Force. This continued on for several years, as the Brotherhood allied with groups, such as the Cabal (that doesn't exist), and Sesame Street, led by the now Darth Elmo. However, new enemies arose. Hunters would invade the base of the Brotherhood almost everyday, trying to kill members. Enemies like Bob Barker and Dr. Dick-Smith Deez Nuts would be seen daily in protest of the Brotherhood. Sadly, The Brotherhood of the Bird was done away with when the apocalypse occurred. Many of the hunters gathered with Barker and Dr. Deez Nuts to exterminate the followers. The hunters were able to kill nearly every member, while Bob Barker and Dr. Deez Nuts had plans of their own. Capturing Big Bird, Barker strapped him to a table and castrated him violently, as the bird flopped in various directions. His testicles would later go to use as food for the hungry. After the castration, Dr. Deez Nuts killed Big Bird with a lightsaber. His guttings would later help in the creation of Madclaw!, Wookiee Goldberg.
The surviving members went in different directions, some joining the Sith, others joining the Jedi. Unfortunately for the survivors who joined the Jedi, Order 66 was soon executed, leaving only the Sith. Many years later, Sesame Street was sent to exterminate the son of Wookiee Goldberg, Animal. Upon arrival, Elmo sensed much Force potential in him, unlike anything he had seen since Big Bird. Believing that this animal could be the return of his former lord, he gladly accepted him as an apprentice. Elmo soon sought revenge on Bird's killer, traveling back to Tatooine to hunt down Dr. Deez Nuts with Darth Animal. After finding him, a massive duel occurred. Dr. Deez Nuts sensed the same power in Animal as Bird and knew he had to kill him. However, it was too late. Animal killed the slain parakeet's killer. Elmo's revenge was over.
The biggest ritual of the Brotherhood of the Bird was the laying of the egg. In this act, the followers were to watch Big Bird or one of his prophets pop an egg out of his ass. This was considerably hard for the non-bird prophets, like Mr. Hooper.
On the creation of the worldEdit
There is no World. There is also no Cabal.
On the end of the worldEdit
The end of the non-existing world was believed to be caused in the future by the infamous Dr. Dick-Smith Deez Nuts. This was later proven partly true with the apocalypse.
The afterlife usually wasn't told by Big Bird, rather by prophet, Mr. Hooper.
The prophets of Big BirdEdit
Big Bird had many prophets, including Snuffleupagus (who didn't even exist), Mr. Hooper (who was dead) and Darth Elmo (who was unofficial).
Enemies and demonsEdit
- "I'll buy you a parakeet!"
- ―A hunter — Listen
The biggest enemy to the Brotherhood was hunters, mainly because they would often try to persuade followers by buying them parakeets as pets. Others included Bob Barker for trying to spay and neuter the followers and Dr. Dick-Smith Deez Nuts.
