Star Wars Everywhere

I’m not sure what’s going on recently but for some reason everywhere I turn I stumble onto something Star Wars. I think maybe that there’s a spike in Star Wars related links emailed around during the holidays. There’s always that one person you might want to send a geeky Star Wars gift to and then that sets you off on an internet search and then you’re emailing around, I don’t know, this t-shirt:

Or, maybe, this sleeping bag:

Or, maybe, this joke:

Q: How did Darth Vader know what Luke Skywalker got him for Christmas?

A: He felt his presents.

Even though those first two are available off the same site I actually wound up finding them for totally different reasons. Tauntaun is hard to spell. And I don’t even remember where I heard the joke first.

In the end it doesn’t matter. Those are all fine and good but when the words “Holiday” and “Star Wars” ring in my ears, there’s only one thing I want to see.

Yes. It’s time again to trot out The Star Wars Holiday Special.

Enjoy as you watch 30 minutes of wookies hooting at each other. Thank you, Mister Lucas, and God bless us everyone.
