    Stirring with a light saber is more hygenic than a Jedi armpit.

    It’s like the punchline to an old joke:

    “That was ice cold! Why did you tell me it was lukewarm?”

    “Well, eet luke warm to me.”

    I’m wondering how he managed to switch hands before handing the coffee to Pig.

    I’m sorry, I’m a literalist.

    A real Jedi would leave the lightsaber off, and hanging from his or her belt, until it was time to use it.

    Pastis, didn’t learn anything from Salman Rushdie’s experience. Now you’ll have the Star Wars crowd after you.

    Some women (and perhaps some men) have argued that Luke is pretty hot, but I never got the thrust of that argument. Maybe he got some special sexy markings on Tatooine?

    What, or rather whom, does Pig use for his cold coffee? Vanilla Ice? Ice-T?

    Sadly, but only because this is Star Wars – AND coffee related, this may now be in top 5-10 of all time.

    Mr Pastis sir, at times I consider you a criminal for your wanton cruelty to the English language.

    I love you too much to stay angry though.
