The social media world has their fingers in a twist today, full of puns about Star Wars and how May 4th can be so cleverly rebranded as “May the fourth…be with you.” And also with you? What is this, church? Spare me.
If you’re easily offended, you might want to stop reading.
I’ve never seen Star Wars. How many movies are there? I have no idea. It’s not my cup of tea. However, I’ve seen Space Jam a million times. That’s basically the same thing, right? Both have to do with astronomy. It works.
So with that, I’ve created a new holiday, and it lasts an entire month: Looney June. Looney June will be a celebration of Space Jam and all the great things about it.
If you’re not good with puns and don’t get the reference, I’ll reluctantly explain. In Space Jam, Michael Jordan gets sucked into a golf hole and then plays basketball with the Looney Tunes to take down a group of aliens who stole talent from NBA players by going into their body and stealing their basketball abilities.
Graphic, I know.
Anyways, Looney Tunes sounds like Looney June. This takes all the brain power you have. Do you get it? I hope so.
It took me about 65 seconds to think of it. It would have been shorter but I was trying to think of other puns, first. After I couldn’t rhyme Daffy Duck with a date on the calendar, I tried to rhyme Bugs Bunny with a date. All I thought of was Doug’s Punny. That’s not a date, unfortunately. Though it could be the name of a stand-up comedy routine!
If you’re name is Doug and you want to headline your own show, I just gave you a name for it. You’re welcome.
Speaking of Looney Tunes, I’d be remiss if I didn’t talk about them. Daffy Duck is my favourite. In my opinion, he is the best duck in the world. I think it’s important we all have a “Top Duck”, so to speak. When I ask people who their favourite duck is, I always get, Donald Duck.
Seriously, Donald Duck? The guy got half dressed. How does that happen? He probably put on his sailor shirt and was just about to leave the house when he stopped dead in his tracks and remembered he forgot something. Not his pants, his hat. Oh, how could I forget my hat, he must’ve thought.
Put some pants on, you’re scaring the children. Put a black censorship bar on the screen, please. And for those of you who are arguing that Daffy Duck doesn’t even wear clothes, well, you’re right. But it’s not the first thing that comes to mind when you look at him, is it? The first thing that comes to mind when you see Donald Duck is, where are his pants?
I rest my case.
Bugs Bunny might be the leader, but Daffy Duck steals the show. Much like Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story. To infinity, and be... I’m getting off topic.
So go ahead and mark Looney June on your calendars. It’s gonna be big.
If you’ve never seen Star Wars either, let me know so we can be best friends, or something.
I’ve also never seen Lord of the Rings. I can’t sit through it. Nor will I try. If you haven’t seen that either, let me know.
By the way, if you want to make friends, don’t do what I just did. Apparently people get really offended when you say you haven’t watched a classic movie. Trust me, there are a lot of classic movies I haven’t seen and people get mad about it. Maybe I’ll write a post about those movies some time.
Anyways, only 27 days until Looney June!
Tell your friends.
