Today’s Pun – September 7, 2012

Name the best Punniest of Show entry to use star wars?

At the Punniest of Show competition in 2005 at the 28th Annual O. Henry Pun-Off World Champions, First Place went to FRANCIS MCGRATH for his inventive and rollicking singing of “STAR WARS THE MUSICAL”

He scored the first perfect score since 2000. Here’s the complete transcript of “Star Wars: The Musical” and you can watch the performance video at the end of the transcript sung to different show tune melodies.

“Obi-Wan, singular sensation, every little step he take.

In olden days a little slave boy could bring balance to the force, but
we all know, Anakin goes.

Start the car I know a wookie spot where Qui-Gon Jinn is cold but the
piano’s hot and all that jawas.

Hello Amidala, well hello Amidala

My funny Palpatine.

Don’t you love the Force, give in to your fears, send in the clones.

The people all said Sith down, Sith down you’re rocking the boat.

Sunrise, Boba Fett, Sunrise, Jango Fett.

Don’t cry for me R2-D2.

C3, P0, Touch Me, Heal Me.

Pardon me boy, is this the Chattanooga Chewie Chewie.

Lando, a man a scoundrel man
Ray, a beam shot from a gun
Shmi a slave who had a son
Fa, a galaxy fa, fa away
Solo, a smuggler running spice
Leia, a princess who looks nice
Tie, a fighter that shoots twice,
That will bring us back to…

Luke be a lady tonight, Luke be a lady…

Tonight, tonight, tonight there will be no more Death Star, Tonight!
