UPDATE: Twitter Wordplay Contest: May ‘the 4th’ be with you!

As if the new trailers weren’t exciting enough… It’s unofficial Star Wars Day! And what better way to show our love for all things Science Fiction than with a ‘pun-derful’ Twitter Wordplay Contest?

Because everyone can use a little more space opera in their lives, the object of the contest is to add a sci-fi spin to everyday activities. Whether you’re stuck at a ‘traffic light saber’ or you’re wearing those old jeggings because it’s ‘cylon-dry day,’ indulge your sci-fi side for a chance at one of three $50 gift certificates!

Good luck, and May ‘the fourth’ be with you!

The force was strong with all of our fabulous entrants, but we could only choose three winners!
– @cathleenbishop: ‘Set phasers to pun.’
– @TMalila: ‘R4 is red; R2 is blue. If I was the force, I’d be with you.’
– @GulushThreads: ‘You thought Chewbacca was a Sasquatch? Wookie mistake.’

Thanks for playing, everyone!
