Geeks of the world unite!
A day before we invented one American holiday (Cinco de Mayo), Star Wars fans, of which there are plenty, have invented a holiday all their own. It’s called May the Fourth, which is obviously a play off one of the most famous Star Wars lines ever uttered: May the force be with you.
In honor of geekdom’s most precious holiday, the clever folks at Comedy Central’s @midnight asked Star Wars fans to come up with the best answer to what #StarWarsTaughtMe. Surprisingly, this didn’t break Twitter, probably because Star Wars geeks are the ones running the internet. (I guess I shouldn’t talk mean about them considering they’re the ones controlling my traffic.)
Oh, what the heck! I’ll come clean to my moments of nerdness. Not only did Mother of SportsChump take me to see the original Star Wars back when it hit the theaters in 1977, I also collected Star Wars cards, had a Darth Vader poster and my very own light saber. In fact, I still own three Star Wars shirts.
So call me goofy, you will. But not as goofy as some of these Tweets. I proudly present #StarWarsTaughtMe.
