Did Ted Kennedy Want to Make a Princess Leia Sandwich with Chris Dodd?

I saved this one for after lunch. You can thank me later — either that or curse me for not saving it until after dinner.

We know that Chris Dodd and the late Ted Kennedy were close friends to the point of making sandwiches together, and I’m not referring to lunch in the conventional sense.

To listen to Carrie Fisher’s account of dinner with Kennedy and her date Dodd, Ted might have also been interested in rekindling the deli magic by being the top torpedo roll of the ménage à trois sandwich in hot tub au jus:

“Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher claims the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) asked her some pretty frank questions while dining out with the star and former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.).

According to published excerpts from Fisher’s new book, “Shockaholic,” the entertainer, best known for her role as Princess Leia, was fresh out of her first stint in rehab and on a date with a then single Dodd back in 1985. Kennedy joined the pair at dinner in D.C..

Fisher writes, “Suddenly, Senator Kennedy, seated directly across from me, looked at me with his alert, aristocratic eyes and asked me a most surprising question. ‘So,’ he said, clearly amused, ‘do you think you’ll be having sex with Chris at the end of your date?’”

The celeb adds, “Chris Dodd looked at me with an unusual grin hanging on his very flushed face.”

While Fisher writes that she calmly quipped to Kennedy, “Funnily enough, I won’t be having sex with Chris tonight… No that probably won’t happen…Thanks for asking, though,” the author claims that the rather candid line of questioning didn’t end there.

Fisher continues in her latest tome: “’Would you have sex with Chris in a hot tub?’ Senator Kennedy asked me, perhaps as a way to say good night?”

A tireless advocate for the less fortunate, that Kennedy.

From Fisher’s perspective, was going to dinner with Kennedy and Dodd a wise thing do fresh out of rehab?

By the way, not many people know this, but Carrie Fisher first met Ted Kennedy on the set of Star Wars. Ted was trying out for the part of Chewbacca, but it didn’t go very well and George Lucas had to replace him:
