May the fourth be with you – said every Facebook post, Instagram story and WhatsApp status on this auspicious day.

This cracking pun was the deciding factor for the day, on May 4, dedicated to the celebration of everything Star Wars.

On this anniversary, there’s lots in store to celebrate including this compilation of funny (and cringy) Star Wars wisecracks.

What was Lando’s nickname before he became a skilled pilot? Crashdo.

How did Darth Vader know what Luke was getting for his birthday? He felt his presents.

Why couldn’t Luke find love? He was looking in Alderaan places.
