Tuesday, May 4

What day?

Today is Star Wars Day

What I hear you say? yes, it's Star Wars Day - May the 4th be with you.

I know it's a groaner but May the 4th has officially been adopted by the International Jedi Religion due to the well known phrase from Star Wars "May the Force Be With You".

I'm not a religious person at all, and I'm not even really a Star Wars fan, but my brothers were. And it amuses me that A Jedi Religion was founded. 

This story amused me from last year. The founder of the UK Jedi religion was thrown out of tesco last year for refusing to remove his hood.(Jedi knights were dark brown robes with hoods on), but the line Tesco came back with was brilliant... [quote] They claimed that the three most well known Jedi Knights in the Star Wars movies - Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker - all appeared in public without their hoods."[end quote] which was in fact true.
But the guy claimed that (Tesco) "They wasted my personal time. They were rude and not very nice to me. They had three people around me. It was intimidating." So much for being a Jedi.. where was the force when he needed it? 

And on to one of my favourite clips (mock up I might add) on you tube of the moment when Luke Skywalker removed the helmet from Darth Vader.. this has my crying with laughter. If you don't know the movie Star Wars you probably won't have a clue what the clip is about.. (sorry).

So... Happy Star Wars Day and May the 4th be with you
