May the Fourth, a celebration dedicated to all things Star Wars, is the archetypal holiday of the internet age. Rather than participating in familial rituals and religious observations, the collective cult consciousness of Star Wars fans everywhere coalesces on the internet, where the only currency that matters isn’t republic credits, but memes.
Thankfully, making memes is much easier than going through an entire childhood of Padawan training.
