Anyone who can invoke the Star Wars prequels to explain something ridiculous in history is okay with me

Think how boring #StarWars would be if the Empire used cloud computing instead of data tapes.

When I retire I’m going to write a screenplay for a gritty new soap opera featuring the Ewoks from #StarWars. It’s called EastEndors.

Cindal goes soap?
Put a load into the dryer and had to twist every dial to correct setting. I won’t lie to you: it made me feel like a Space Captain #StarWars

Spike was showing the prequels this weekend, so naturally Twitter chatter followed. Head beneath the cut, my padawans…
Objectively, I dislike the first two SW prequels, but I still stop and watch them when they’re on Spike TV. Brand loyalty strikes again?

Just realized Queen Amidala could have avoided an entire plot arc by maybe taking a picture or two of her planet being invaded. #starwars

I love how everything is overdone in a George Lucas film but the fonts.. might as well be comic sans.

My son proudly exclaims that Revenge of the Sith is his favorite of all six Star Wars movies and I weep loudly.

It’s always the look on Ki-Adi Mundi’s face that makes me sad. :(

“You were my brother, Anakin! I loved you!” Revenge of the Sith always leaves my heart in pieces.

Watching #StarWars, and have to go to the bathroom like crazy while waiting for a commercial break. Then remembered I’m watching it on DVD.

But it was also the first Star WArs Weekend, and it seems like way more people I know on Twitter attended this year than ever – ever – before. It’s like they don’t know it’s in Florida.
Very cool to see the little boys at Star Wars Weekends excited about all the female characters like Amidala and Ahsoka.

Aww, the people in front of me think the Star Tours luggage scanner droid was in Star Wars. I’ve refrained from jumping in.

I guess this is EU? Let’s say it’s EU.
Ewok fact: yub yub and yubnub mean two different things.
— Pablo Hidalgo (@infinata) May 18, 2012
@dustinlroberts We don’t say that in front of the woklings.
— Pablo Hidalgo (@infinata) May 19, 2012
This is certainly EU.
When I see “EU” in a headline I think, “Expanded Universe” of Star Wars not “European Union.” Stop screwing the stock market, Skywalkers!

I used to do this. Now I read so much AP wire copy that I’ve compartmentalized and desensitized.

While I’m complaining about fandom tonight I’d like to register incredulity that anyone can call Mara Jade a Mary Sue with a straight face.
— Skalja (@bettafish) May 18, 2012
Actually, Mara-as-a-Mary-Sue gained some traction in certain areas of fandom during the NJO, thanks in no small part to a pair of fairly dedicated, yet rather hilarious, trolls.
When I see something like “Force Push” or “Force Jump” in a #SWEU book, I like to think the character stops and rolls initiative first.

And, to take us out, the snark:
Lucas should name his development Mos Eisley, right? Because the neighbors will consider it a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Today’s the birthday of both George Lucas and Mark Zuckerberg. I plan to celebrate by changing something people like the way it is.

Yoda was able to hide from me because Dagobah had no holonet signal, so I couldn’t find his check-ins on Forcequare.

Clutch on my car is all busted to shit. Turns out it has a worse motivator than I do. #StarWars
