Is Data strong enough to pick up Jabba over his head and chuck him?
In the beginning of "Return of the Jedi," Jabba grabs some live thing and eats it. If, instead, he wanted to eat Chewbacca or Boba Fett, would they be in deep manure, or could they extricate themselves from the situation?
A skinny woman was able to choke him to death with a chain and her weight. Chewbacca would probably have been able to kill him with his bare hands.
My theory is that he has very important blood vessels on the surface of his skin and that is how he died under such pressure. These blood vessels can't be buried within him because the fat would crush them.
