Happy Star Wars Day! May the 4th be with you!
It's not quite Cinco de Mayo. There's no special Corona beer ads and the level of boozing and vomiting in the streets is somewhat less pronounced, but there's still a holiday to celebrate every 4th of May when we all don our finest capes and channel the Force, best we know how.
There are movie marathons, costume parties and deep discussions of the Star Wars mythos and canons. Some people even get nerdy with it.
And, of course, you can get your Galaxy Far Far Away fix via Twitter. The The Force itself does not have a Twitter page yet - not a meaningful one, anyway - but you can get a joke a day from @starwarsjokes. Or, better yet, probe the mind of Darth Vader who has a wickedly dark (side) sense of humor tweeting as @darthvader. Here's a sample:

Can't tell if I have the swine flu or just need a fresh air filter cartridge
Just be glad I don't celebrate Earth Day the way I celebrated Alderaan Day.
Aaaah, I love the smell of dead rebels in the morning!
You can always figure out which character you are in real life - Jedi, Sith, bounty hunter or bantha fodder?
Or you could just sit back and enjoy Eddie Izzard's classic - and NSFW - take on life on the Death Star:
