#StarWars Tom Swifites!

SFs, do you know what a Tom Swiftie is? It’s a little joke/pun like this:

"I like hot dogs," Tom said frankly.
"Kirigami is fun," Tom said cuttingly.

See how the adverb at the end has something to do with what Tom is saying? That’s the joke. Not LOL, but cleverly amusing.


In cooperation with beloved kid’s book author Madelyn Rosenberg — who wrote "Canary in a Coal Mine" — we’re proud to present "Star Wars Swifties!"

Here’s one of mine:
"One thing’s for sure, we’re all going to be a lot thinner," Han said flatly.

And one of Madelyn’s:
"Here’s you father’s lightsaber," Obi Wan said forcefully.

Keep reading below for some others from Madelyn and her pun-loving team or start making up your own in the comments!

"We’re doomed," said C3PO adroitly.
"Come over to my side," Vader said darkly.
"Jedi scum," the general said grievously.
"You will be slowly digested for millions of years," the Sarlac said piteously.
"Ha ha ha ha hee hee hee," the monkey lizard said salaciously.
"These are not the droids you’re looking for," the trooper said stormily.
"I don’t like doors getting slammed on my head," the beast said rancorously.
"Fear my force lightning," said Palpatine insidiously.

Clever! I can’t come up with any (BRAIN NOT FUNCTIONING) besides this Star Trek one: “I’ve got your blaster!” Jim shot out.

A DOUBLE pun in that one! Well played!

Thanks! My fav other double-pun Swiftie is NPR-inspired: “I really like men with facial hair,” said Eleanor Beardsley.

  Tom Angleberger wrote @

Now that’s just weird!

Love the title of your new book by the way!
