Happy Star Wars Day! - 25 May, 1977


Today is the REAL Star Wars Day for fans of the movies who are not chumpy little POSEURS!

34 years ago, Uncle George (well, they called him that until 1999 when many accused Lucas of raping their childhood and touching them in a bad place... to that I say, if you can't keep it in your pants, keep it in the family, Uncle George!), brought us the original Star Wars movie and inspired thousands of artists from whogivesapoo to nooneispayingmetoresearchthiscrap.

But wannabe geeks and nerds who fell in love with the franchise when they first discovered it last year have hijacked the fandom and made the 4th of May the "official" Star Wars Day. Why? Because these nutjobs have decided that the biggest franchise in the history of everything somehow needs a cute little play on words for us to remember it. For those who haven't figured it out yet, the date was chosen so nerdjobs could say "May the Fourth be with you!" like some lispy idiots trying to say "May the Force be with you."

Get it? Isn't it cute? Isn't it awesome?

"NO! IT ISN'T!" is the appropriate response.

So, next year, when Star Wars faker fans wish you a happy Star Wars Day on the 4th, punch them in the frakin' face! Repeat this with everyone, as many times as necessary, for as many years as necessary, until you condition them to know the correct date.

You have your mission, Star Wars fans. Carry on.

May the twenty-fifth be with you.

  3. For me 5/25/77 is year 0. Not religious, but I treat it like BC and AD.

    Where were you before Star Wars and after it? WERE YOU EVEN ALIVE?
    When did you experience it for the first time? In the theaters during it's initial theatrical run? On video or HBO in 82? Or in 97 when the SEs came out.

    May the 25th be with you! And Jedi is 28. So let's spread the love.

    Ordering My Little Pony pillows on Amazon shortly.

  4. My little brother was born in 1987, a full DECADE after the release, but he was raised by me to understand the importance of that day. No matter what wrongs Lucas may have done, and may do in the future, I will always love him for changing my life when I was just a widdle wun.

  5. Anger issues!!! Let people celebrate any Star Wars day they choose. They are still showing their appreciation for the franchise.
    It's over obsessed geeks like you that give the whole group a bad rep.

  6. I feel the first real Geek furious moment of the site coming on...in 3,2,1

    @Anonymous

    People should be free to celebrate yes, but not be ignorant about it. Creating and perpetuating something because it works as a catch phrase is misleading...and annoying.

  8. No, Vlad, they shouldn't be free to celebrate anything. Wipe them out if they won't submit!

    That is feckin' hilarious. Wouldn't it be funny if My Little Pony smothering becomes some kind of anti fourther meme?

  13. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. An elegant weapon for a more civilized age.

  21. Hmmmmm... I don't know. If I turn off the challenge thingy, then some Fourther is bound to spam the site. I will consider it if enough people complain but otherwise, get a real browser!
