As some of you may know, yesterday was âStar Wars Day.â May the fourth be with you. Get it?
Science fiction author John Scalzi, perhaps best known for his âOld Manâs Warâ series, took the occasion to troll Star Wars fans, comparing thoseÂ who donât recognize the awfulness of the three prequel movies to the folks who refuse to vaccinate their children.
âKingkiller Chroniclesâ author Pat Rothfuss joined the fun.
Itâs not an official nerd party until one of us gripes about âFireflyâ being cancelled. Even Ensign Wesley Crusher (a.k.a. Wil Wheaton) knows that.
Scalzi wasnât finished:
Then Scalzi âwent thereâ and brought up the Star Wars Holiday Special.
Yes, this special actually happened and featured Bea Arthur, Art Carney, Harvey Korman and members of the original âStar Warsâ Cast.
Oh! That was today? How embarrassing!
