May The 4th Be With You! Or, for casual fans less in-the-know, Happy Star Wars Day! (See what they did there, with “may the Force be with you” and May 4th? Genius.) Today is the official holiday for dedicated Star Wars fans to reminisce over the movies and Extended Universe books, to dress up, and to play with their action figures without fear of getting made fun of.

It’s impossible to try and explain the breadth and depth of Star Wars‘ impact on pop culture and fandom, and this isn’t the place to write a rambling essay (much as I would love to). Instead, I thought the most appropriate thing for Crushable readers was to post the funniest Star Wars memes and image macros I could find online. Obviously the series has spawned legitimate internet memes, like poor Star Wars Kid, but it’s also consistently been matched up with visual memes of the time, from demotivational posters to the kind of image captions you see on Tumblr. Like, did you ever think there’d be a funny joke matching up Darth Vader and Carly Rae Jepsen? The internet is a beautiful place.
