Lightsabers and Starfighters: Funny Friday

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

    1. I did research! Gotta love living in the age of Google.

  2. Bwahahahaha! Priceless! Do you think Sir Snowman The-Ghost-of-Christmas-Future would bring me my future gifts as well?
    Pah. Defective R2D2 is right! Even I understood that. (she says praying no one asks her . . .)

    1. Maybe we should hold Sir Snowman hostage till he brings us both our future presents. Just a thought . . .

  3. I want future gifts as well! Great pic, she's adorable.

    1. She really is adorable, this was a fun pic to caption.

  4. I am always on the lookout for ways to make shrimp, and I haven't made grilled shrimp in a while. So this is a must try, it looks so delicious and colorful, Karen!

    1. Thank you, Hadia. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
