…And Murray from Accounting: Last week’s best #StarWars and #SWEU tweets

Things are getting back to normal in tweet roundup… Today, we have action figure snark, Star Wars day at the ballpark, tagging George Lucas and aliens with(out) genitals on their heads. Plus our standard selection of Expanded Universe, Star Wars life, and even a little bit of lingering #StarWarsCVI.

I like to think that George Lucas didn’t really change the original Star Wars Trilogy, he just tried to add multithreading to it.Ethan Lee

Can you imagine Luke Skywalker going up to Darth Vader with the Joker laugh? Vader would wet himself. #starwarsYoko Higuchi

Sometimes I watch the Star Wars movies in the wrong order & add swear words to dialogue, just as Tarantino would like.Tom Foolery™
It seems odd and highly implausible to me that none of the aliens in the Star Wars movies had genitals visible on their heads.Shkeeber
Silly human. That’s such a Star Trek move.
I’m not sure what all Facebook is wanting me to tag on this pic of George Lucas… http://pic.twitter.com/Na7S2Ia1Aaron Goins
Twitter would be so much cooler if your timeline scrolled away from you like the intro to Star Wars movies.Jackson Franke
Just finished #StarWars episode 1, watching episode 2 now. Anakin aged 15 years, Obi aged 15-20 years. Padme has not aged a day #LucasLogicAdam James Bullivant
You know Star Wars fans don’t have a name. They’re just Star Wars fans. Seems to work for them. #wishIdstartedaStarWarsbloginsteadBlogtor Who

    Dunc, I wanted to say that these are among my favorite posts. For whatever reason, they don’t draw much comments (because, hey, what else is left to say) but I appreciate the effort that goes into them.
