Fun Observances

  Talk Like Yoda Day

Talk like Yoda Day it is on May 21. The day honors the popular Star Wars character whose grammar is any language teacher’s worst nightmare.

Yoda is a fictional Star Wars character created by George Lucas. Known as the oldest wisest and most powerful Jedi in the Star Wars universe, Yoda made his debut appearance in The Empire Strikes Back, which was released in the United States on May 21, 1980. He has since appeared in over 50 films and TV shows.

Mysterious History

While many of the Star Wars characters have a background story, much of Yoda's background is a mystery. No one knows where he comes from or what species he belongs to.

Peculiar Way of Speaking

Yoda has a peculiar style of speaking. His language, Yodish, is similar to English except the sentence structure follows the order of object-subject-verb instead of the usual subject-verb-object order that English speakers follow while constructing sentences.

It is believed that the puppet used to play the character in the Star Wars movies was modeled after Einstein's appearance.

The holiday is also sometimes known as National Talk like Yoda Day or International Talk like Yoda Day.

To celebrate how?

  • Yoda, talk like. Simple, it is. Add verb and subject at the end of your sentence in the order of object-subject-verb.
  • Have a Star Wars themed party and have your friends come up with their favorite Yoda quotes.
  • Do a Star Wars marathon.
  • Learn more about Yoda's background and history - as much as is available.
  • Show off your Star Wars geek pride. Wear a Star Wars inspired costume or t-shirt the whole day long.

 

…that there is a deep-sea worm named after Yoda? The Yoda purpurata can be found about 1.5 miles (2.4 km) below the surface of the Atlantic sea.

Suspecting he had a serious medical condition, I nagged my husband until he agreed to see a doctor. Once there, he was handed a mountain of forms to fill out.

Next to "Reason for visit?" he wrote, "My wife made me."

Three guys are talking about what constitutes fame. The first guy defines it as being invited to the White House for a chat with the president.

"Nah," says the second guy. "Real fame would be if the red phone rang when you were there, and the president wouldn't take the call."

"You're both wrong," says the third. "Fame is when you're in the Oval Office and the red phone rings, the president answers it, listens for a second, and then says, "'It's for you.'"

My son Timothy was his brother's best man. To commemorate the event, Daniel bought him a silver mug, but the engraver made a slight mistake. The mug read "Best man once, a bother forever."

A gnome is in the garden busily destroying some bushes when a house cat appears. "What are you?" asks the cat.

"A gnome," comes the reply. "I steal food from humans, I kill their plants, I make annoying music at night to drive them crazy, and I love mischief. And what, may I ask, are you?"

The cat replies, "Um, I'm a gnome."
