Today is called Star Wars Day because it’s May the Fourth, as in, “May the Fourth Be With You.” It’s a pun that lots of people say out loud all day long and somehow they don’t get punched in the face for it. I still don’t understand how that works. Few people can get away with making puns on any other day of the year. The popular response to practically any other pun I can think of results in no less than public shaming, and the worst puns are often met with stony silence followed by shunning that can go on for days. The reason Star Wars gets a pass is a mystery.
