Princess Threea and Luke Fivewalker, in case you were wondering.

This seems to be a bigger deal every year, so i figured I couldn't ignore it and keep my geek cred.
Frankly, before maybe five years ago, I hadn't really heard the pun. Don't know where it started or when it really caught on.
It was a clue on Jeopardy! a few years ago, so that's where I'd start looking.

Also check out Lucas Numbers, Movie Night and, of course, Hamlet II: Claudius Strikes Back.

The previous commentator had this to say: "Your post is marvelous and i truly revel in it"

... which was interesting enough in itself before leading into a grammatically unsound sentence with a link to a education site. Talk about sending mixed messages.

I'm not saying that the site was definitely spam (I wasn't going to click on it to find out) but the syntax of the blurb learned in that general direction.

If I was mistaken, please, contact me so I know that you're a human being with a legitimate site and we can all revel in it.
