Here are some of my contributions to today’s Twitter meme, #greatquoteswithdear. You can probably figure out how the game works…

  • “Damn it, dear, I’m a doctor, not a bricklayer!”
  • “Damn the torpedoes, dear. Full speed ahead!”
  • “Don’t fire until you see the whites of their eyes, dears.”
  • “Hello, dear. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”
  • “I aim to misbehave, dear.”
  • “I came, I saw, I conquered, dear.”
  • “Kneel before Zod, dear.”
  • “Madness? This is Sparta, dear!” ← (this one’s my favorite)
  • “More weight, dear.”
  • “Something wicked this way comes, dear.”
  • “The same thing we do every night, dear: Try to take over the world!”
  • “Why so serious, dear?”
  • “Yippee-ki-yay, dear.”
  • “You’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, dear?”

I found out about the #starwarsbandnames meme from @BadAstronomer. It’s pretty self-explanatory: Take the name of a real music group and alter it to make it a Star Wars reference.

Some of my contributions:

  • Jefferson X-Wing (I figured it sounded better than Jefferson Death Starship, though someone later suggested Jefferson Star Destroyer, which is better.)
  • Obi-Wan Folds Five (This one actually got a retweet!)
  • Red Five for Fighting

And Katie’s (Posted on my account because hers isn’t publicly visible):

  • Snowspeeder Patrol
  • Augustanakin
  • Seven Mary 3PO

There’s a ton of entries out there, and it’s still going. Some of my favorites others have posted:

  • pipboy2009: Naboo Fighters
  • DevDell: The Qui-Gon Jinn Blossoms
  • treelobsters: Alderaan Deraan
  • wk_marshall: Peter, Paul, and Mara Jade

Another Twitter meme: come up with movie titles just one letter off from the original, tagged #oneletteroffmovies. I posted these on my other account on Friday.

  • New Dork Stories
  • Annie Get Your Gum
  • Fight Clue
  • There should be an Oz sequel called All About Ev.
  • Reaching a bit, but Key D’argo (Farscape)
  • Ok, I keep coming up with movie titles for and finding that someone else has already done them. Time for bed I think.
  • Okay, one more. There are those who call it…The Land Before Tim.
