As far as Internet memes go, this one is pretty fun. In English, today’s date, May the 4, sounds a lot “May the Force” … so, aptly, today has been deemed “Star Wars” day.
This past Sunday I had a bit of fun on Twitter by taking some famous Star Wars movie quotes and following them with the natural reaction that would come from a teenager. Here they are, I may add more during the day today. Please add your own! Join in. Use the hashtag #teenstarwars to vent your very own frustration with teendom while showing your LURVE for Star Wars.
Darth: You are part of the rebel alliance and a traitor!
Leia: Yeah, OK, Dad, WHATEVER!
Darth: Luke, I am your father!
(Luke mumbles under breath).
Darth: What did you say?!
Luke: NOTHING! OH MY GOD!
Yoda: I have something here for you.
Luke: Cool! What is it?
Yoda: Your father’s light saber.
Luke: Oh. … That.
Darth: We’ll have to destroy them ship to ship. Get the crews to their fighters.
Teen Minion: I REALLY don’t understand your Navy metaphors.
Darth: This will be a day long remembered.
Teen Minion: Dad, I’ve taken out the garbage before.
Leia: If money is all that you love, then that’s what you’ll receive.
Teen: SWEET! ALLOWANCE RAISE!
Leia: Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?
Teen: Mom! I just got my hair cut last week! GOD!
Yoda: You are reckless.
Teen: I’M 17 YEARS OLD AND I WILL DIE OF OLD AGE BEFORE YOU LET ME DRIVE, I SWEAR!
Darth:“Calculate every possible destination along their last known trajectory.”
Teen Minion: Jeez, Dad, just call his cell. Duh.
And here’s a transformed quote from my friend Bryce Moore of @abiteofsanity: Darth: I find your lack of chores disturbing.
