Penguins Star Wars Night: 25 Puns from the Dark Side



If only the Penguins had played the Sharks and an actual Wookie were present. Or–where the heck was Y108’s Wookie?!

OK, ok, I have no life. I’ve seen every Star Wars movie; I recite lines, I even have a 15″ tall interactive R2D2 which will follow me around the room and talk to me. (Let’s face it, with my personality, anything that will talk to me is a blessing).

I even linger when Phantom Menace is on TV. God help me. So, Star Wars Night at PPG Paints Arena was a little slice of heaven. While other reporters jotted pre-game columns, I was scribbling and editing potential Star Wars puns. Unfortunately, the Penguins beat me to the “Kessel Run” in 12 parsecs joke.

So, since Twitter no longer lists tweets in order, here are all 25, in chronological order. And a little bonus from today…

Ok, I flubbed that one. I should have tweeted, The Penguins went rogue, one player.

Yep, a classic misquote, too. It should be Great, kid! Don’t get cocky. I beg a thousand pardons.

The obligatory homage to Space Balls, too. I hate that movie, but that is pretty funny and perfectly summed up the Penguins final five minutes.

There you go! All the ridiculous tweets in one place. Now, isn’t that a Rey of sunshine? Please don’t maul me. I can’t stop. Help me, Obi Wan, er, nevermind.
