May the 4th be with you!

In 1977 Star Wars was released to very receptive audiences.  Line-ups were the norm in Toronto.  But then, back then, line-ups was normal in Toronto for most movies, and even in winter.  It was a movie-going town with lots of great venues with big screens and great sound. Maybe that's how the TIFF festival got to Toronto - knowing the audiences were already there.

There are many articles - 20 facts, 30 facts, and so on  - things you didn't know about Star Wars.  These seem to be tidbits for diehard fans.

So I have turned to finding jokes, and Reader's Digest supplied some puns:
Q: Which program do Jedi use to open PDF files?
A: Adobe Wan Kenobi
Q: Which website did Chewbacca get arrested for creating?
A: Wookieleaks
Q: Why did Anakin Skywalker cross the road?
A: To get to the Dark Side.
Q: Why is Yoda such a good gardener?
A: Because he has a green thumb. 
Q: How do you get down from a bantha?
A: You don’t. You get down from a goose.
Luke and Obi-Wan walk into a Chinese restaurant. Ten minutes into the meal, Luke’s still having trouble with the chopsticks, dropping food everywhere. Obi-Wan finally snaps, “Use the forks, Luke.”
The Star Wars text crawl walks into a bar.
“Get outta my pub!” the bartender yells. “We don’t serve your type here.”

These are the gerberas from the greenhouse tour a few weeks ago.   I am so taken by their complex centres with tiny pistols and petals looking like confetti.
