While riding the bus you should always give up your seat to pregnant women, moms with babies, the elderly and Yoda.

It’s always exciting to see new species of animals, plants and insects discovered, but it’s even cooler when they look like our favorite Star Wars characters!
A nyctimene tube-nosed fruit bat with an appearance reminiscent of the Star Wars Jedi Master Yoda has been discovered in a remote rainforest. The bat, along with an orange spider and a yellow-spotted frog are among a host of new species found in a region of Papua New Guinea.
Boingboing updates today with a catchy little ditty called “Tatooine” by Jeremy Messersmith — a short two-and-a-half-minute piece which recounts the entire original trilogy in a Paul Simon-like song illustrated with paper cut-out animation.
Be warned — you might find yourself whistling this one all afternoon.
Check it out here.
UPDATE: Wired has just posted an interview with Messersmith that you can read here.
Most of us here at StarWars.com are suckers for the propaganda poster aesthetic, and this pro-restraining-bolt piece we spotted over at Superpunch really captures the style beautifully. By artist Tim Fischer, who also recently composed “Do Your Duty, Trooper”.
Check out the original Superpunch post here.
