Looney June is Coming

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.

    Haha .. Oh my. I love Star Wars, I grew up watching them, so on this day a lot of nerds throw parties.. a “may through fourth..be with you.” Party lol.

    I wish I could join in on this but I can not, i am a fan of Star Wars..LOTR.. Harry Potter… and of course Looney Toons.. as well as Animaniacs.. Yup.

    But we are all entitled to our opinion and just because you do not like something I am not going to jump all over it and make you feel blasphemous about it. Just like you wouldn’t bash people who like such things. 😀

    Can’t wait for Looney June!! 😉

    This is AWESOME! I never, ever do any of the A-Z challenges or anything like that here. But Looney June? I’ll definitely be able to think of something Looney every day in June. Although if I have to include Michael Jordan….that will be tougher. I saw Star Wars 7 times in the theater when it came out. And I don’t particularly like going to the movies. I will forgive you. How about Starship Troopers?

    I’ve never seen Star Wars and everyone hates me. I’ve sat through Lord of the Rings, but I can’t keep the characters in line.
    Space movies scare me because space scares me, but I have seen Space Jam and it is amazing. Although I must say my favorite Looney Toons characters are Will E. Coyote and Roadrunner

      *Internet high five* for not watching Star Wars. Space movies are weird. Even Star Trek, I don’t understand the fascination with it. Those are some good characters too, Porky Pig is also one of the best. He’s always so panicked.

    You are probably the first guy I’ve seen admit to not liking Star Wars or Lord of the Rings. Thank you for that. I can’t sit through either one, and it’s true that people do get offended when I tell them that. Looking forward to Looney June! And thanks for the follow 🙂

      Awesome! Yeah I’m not afraid to admit it. I can’t sit and watch a movie for the length of these ones, plus they don’t even seem interesting. People say “watch the trailer!” and I watch the trailer and I’m bored. Looney June is gonna be big! aka I have no idea what’s gonna happen.

        Yeah, I guess I’m more into romantic comedies or ambiguous movies I can deconstruct and get angry over. Hahaha “I have no idea what’s gonna happen” well that’s what makes it even more exciting! We could be on the verge of history.

        Yeah same. lol just kidding I don’t think I’ve ever seen/been forced to watch a romantic comedy. Does Father of The Bride count? You know, I posted this Looney June idea thinking it would just be a punny idea. Now people are actually interested in it. haha what have I done?


      • hmekeel says:

        I think that counts. But I haven’t seen it in years! Haha you have created a movement, Paul. THIS IS BIG. Did I mention I’ve never seen Space Jam? But I did appreciate your thorough explanation of it for my brain to catch on.


      • Paul says:

        You haven’t seen Space Jam!? Oh man. I’ll forgive you. Fortunately it’s only about 90 minutes long, has a bunch of cartoons in it, and has an unrealistic storyline. So if you ever watch it, it won’t disappoint. And thanks, I can feel the pressure of Looney June mounting!


      • hmekeel says:

        I think I may have seen part of it when I was younger, but I definitely need to rewatch it. Sounds like I better put it on my list for summer!

    I love Star Wars, LOTR, and Space Jam, but I’m not easily offended and like reading other people’s rants, so once I read, “If you’re easily offended, you might want to stop reading.” I smiled and kept scrolling. I will celebrate Loony June!

  11. Space Jam was my movie back in the day! I also realized I thought Lola was a tease and a half. Yep, she’s hot,
