In today's divisive political climate, it's nice to know that there's still one thing that everyone can agree on: Star Wars is awesome. And while there might still be some minor disagreements within Star Wars fandom (which order to watch them, whether the prequels are hot garbage or just regular garbage), on the whole, the franchise binds us and unites us, like some kind of mystical whatchamacallit. You may roll your eyes at a few of the May the Fourth memes that you come across today, but it's comforting to know that no matter who you are, no matter what your sense of humor may be, there are other people out there who are right there with you.
Personally, my preferred types of Star Wars jokes are mash-ups with other facets of pop culture, and anything poking fun at the prequels, which is why "It's Always Sunny In Tatooine" is one of my favorite jokes of all time; click through if you have a minute, you're familiar with It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, and you able to watch a video with sound right now. But I know that only appeals to a specific segment of the population. Twitter is here for the rest of you, with every kind of Star Wars meme under the sun. Let's dig in.

No explanation needed, I assume.
