Every Day is Geek Pride Day at The Mary Sue

All this has happened before...

Remember when you were a kid and you asked your parents why, if there was a Mothers’ Day and a Fathers’ Day, why wasn’t there a Children’s Day? And they said “Every day is Children’s Day!” and you were overwhelmingly unsatisfied with that answer? Just me? Well, I imagine that’s how you feel about the title of this post, but I don’t really care because now I’m an adult and that sort of thing amuses me.

But it’s also true, guys. It’s true. Lets see some evidence. Since may 25th is Geek Pride Day in honor of Star Wars (which opened on this day thirty five years ago) and the day two weeks after the untimely passing of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Douglas Adams when fans decided to carry towels with them in tribute and morning, we’ll restrict our evidence to that of the Star Warsian and HGTTGian nature.

You could watch John Cleese on Doctor Who, thanks to Douglas Adams.

Or see how badly Star Wars characters are as Disney Parks employees.

There’s always this brave man with a lightsaber fighting a goose with a lightsaber.

Last year for the holiday, we prepared a fine list of Hoopy Froods who really know where their towel is.

Check out the prescient Douglas Adams himself on the advancement of technology and the internet in the modern age.

And if you like the picture at the top of this post, it’s from some recently released set photos from the Star Wars movies.

Happy Geek Pride Day!

She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
