May the Fourth be With You: A Cacophony of Star Wars Day Fun

As anyone cool enough to know, knows, May 4th is Star Wars Day. Ya know, it's a play on words. If you don't get it, you are probably reading the wrong blog - unless you want to learn how to be cool. Yup, that's right. As cool as me. But I digress. As I was saying, today is May 4th, and that means today is Star Wars Day. Now I know a lot of Star Wars fanboys are upset over recent Star Wars news (the Expanded Universe becoming defunct, certain casting for J.J. Abrams new trilogy) but that shouldn't end our love for Star Wars. I mean, most of us got over those so-called prequel things. Things that I still believe to not actually exist, no matter how many people whine about them. But again, I digress. Below are some fun Star Wars Day greetings from around the web. Let's check 'em out.

Isn't he a cute little so-and-so... um, I mean a cute little At-At? Of course he is, and look how happy he is running through that meadow. Freakin' adorable, but let's not get too cutesy here. That's not what we are all about here at All Things Kevyn. We take things to the edge, baby! Okay, maybe not, but we're not al flowers and rainbows either. But, once more, I digress. Let's take a look at a different Star Wars Day greeting - this one a little racier, huh? 

Yup. I found this during a Google search. Obviously it is for a roller derby match. Is that what you call those? Matches? Games? Events, maybe? No, it's gotta be a match. Right? Maybe a Skate. It does say The Great Skate up there. But again, I am getting off topic here. This is about Star Wars Day, and the hot roller girl Leia, making out with that walking carpet. Isn't Han going to be jealous? Or maybe Luke is going to be jealous, if this is happening before Lucas decided that Luke and Leia were brother and sister. Who the fuck knows. Howzabout something a bit scruffier - or at least scruffier looking?

How ya like that one!? That one, or this one, if you will, is actually a rather iconic photo from back in 1977 - with a little photo-shopping addition. But still quite fun. I know when I was young and freshly ensconced into the Star Wars Universe (aka, back when I turned ten during the Summer of '77), I had the white shirt and black vest, and the gun. Yesirree, I was Han Solo, baby. Nothing like having a blaster at your side. Though since these long ago halcyon days, I have come to embrace the force. But I keep getting off subject. Well, I'm still on the subject of Star Wars, but just not Star Wars Day. Oh, there I go again. Just tell me that my rambling is adorable, and let it go at that. Let's move on, shall we?

Wait a minute. How'd that one get in there!? What the hell is happening here!? We are mixing up franchises up in this bitch! Okay, so I'm not sure how this picture got in here, but as a devoted Star Wars fan (but not fanboy, dammit!) I deeply apologize for this slight infraction. Then again, maybe this will bring in the Star Trek fans. The Trekkies or Trekkers or whatever they are calling themselves these days. Maybe I'm just rambling again. Yeah, that last one is probably your best bet. So howzabout one more for the road?

I love Wookiee language jokes. Don't you? Of course you do. Well, I think I'll close with the Wookiee. Can't go wrong doing that, huh? Anyhoo, I hope you have enjoyed my look at Star Wars Day (even if Spock somehow got in there) and, of course, allow me to end with that one oh so important statement on this grand holiday. May the Fourth Be With You. So there. That's it gang. See ya 'round the web. And just ignore the fat guy below. If you don't pay attention to him, he'll just get bored and go away.


  1. I am going to shock you and you will shake you head in total dismay...why the 4th? I take it this must have been the day Star Wars was released? I know blasphemy . As all the girls I knew liked Luke I was into Han Solo- he wasn't as goodie two shoes.

  2. May 4th. Like May the Fourth Be With You.
