Television: It's the ship that made the kessel run in less than 12 parsecs!
Chicken: I guess Star Wars must sound silly to you aliens.
Aliens: Yes! The kessel run takes at least 50 parsecs!
Just to put the SW geek spin on this, it was retro explained in a SW book. The shorter the distance of the run, the closer the ship got to the dangerous black holes in the Kessel system.
