I don’t like it.
I don’t think it’s funny enough to justify an annual Twitter trend.
I really find it to be an annoyance. I wouldn’t care if it hadn’t bled over to the rest of my life with people saying it to me. This is the one day of the year I daren’t wear a Star Wars shirt. I won’t watch the movies. I won’t even discuss them.
That is because this hashtag is officially a failure of us as a fan base.
We’re better than this. Don’t ruin it. Don’t give people reason to point and laugh. Stop doing this to ourselves. Stop doing it to me. At best this was worth a chuckle, a shrug and then an admission of “Yeah, it’s a pretty weak joke.”
Then we go out and work or run errands or mow the lawn.
And so today I have plotted to tweet out things that will purposely annoy my fellow fans. I’m not like this usually. I’ve just had enough. And if I have hit a limit with something Star Wars related, that’s not a good sign. I’m one of the more tolerant of the cheesiness out there.
Please, I implore you, stop the madness. Let’s stop begging people to make fun of us.
That is all.
