As you are all probably aware — assuming you’re on a social network, watch entertainment television, or follow anything Star WarsMay 4th is Star Wars Day. “May the Fourth Be With You” floods message boards and image blogs and walls and Tweets and private messages. And somebody probably actually writes it down with a pen somewhere. Don’t be a part of that bullshit.

You only celebrate the day because you don’t completely understand what the day means, says the above parody of a public service announcement, from the Star Wars YouTube page. Ahem. What’s strange about this video is, in satirizing a hate campaign against Jedis for using mind control on deadly weapons and for being traitors, they create odd parallels between current events and…never mind. America has never been haunted by anyone. (Insert your own joke.)

“Paid for by the Emperor‘s Committee to Destroy May the Fourth.” It’s a solid video, and while it humorously mocks the day in promotion, the day of appreciation is based on a pun — a translation error, actually, but still — and it grates my nerves every time it’s said. I love puns in limited usage. I’m with with “Happy Star Wars Day” being the celebratory phrase. But I’ll mentally throttle the next person I hear say it. And since that will have no effect on anyone, feel free to scream it at me in the comments.

But maybe you’re one of the good guys. We don’t discriminate. And I’m sure we don’t have to tell you ain’t no party like a Jawa party cause a Jawa party don’t stop. Galactic Living TV is here to tell you how to celebrate. When you’re getting ready to decorate, don’t forget to keep your lighting techniques sophisticated. Check out the decor video below.

You can’t have a party without food, and you can’t have food without having someone to give you tips on how to serve it. Save enough for the Stormtroopers, though. Or don’t. Whatever. Enjoy the food video and have a happy 4th of May. And July just in case I forget to tell you.
