Believe it or not, but May 22?today?is Talk Like Yoda Day. We find this rather awesome, because really, if we can have a Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19, when everyone becomes a pale imitation of Johnny Depp), we ought to have a day to honor one of America’s favorite zen muppet/CGI/Frank Oz creations. Still, Yoda’s peculiar speech patterns can be tough to mimic sometimes. So to aid you in preparing for this momentous day, we headed to the Yoda Speak translator, which turns most anything you type in into Yoda’s trademark grammatically savaged sentences. In testing it out, we entered some great movie lines, just to see how Yoda would fare in other cinema?and as it turns out, the little green guy has some range. For your Yoda-speak education, enjoy, you should.

20) Passage I got memorized, there is. Ezekiel 25:17. “Beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men, the path of the righteous man is. Blessed he is of charity and good will who shepherds through the valley of darkness the weak. For truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children, he is. And strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers, I will. And the Lord I am, you will know, when upon you I lay my vengeance.”

Been saying that for years, have I. And if you ever heard it, your ass it meant. Never really questioned what it meant, did I. Giving into the dark side, it was. But saw I some things this morning, think twice they made me. Now thinking am I that it could mean that the evil man is you, and the righteous man am I. And Mr. Lightsaber here, the shepherd protecting my righteous ass in the valley of darkness he is. Or, possible it is that the righteous man and the shepherd you could be, and evil and selfish is the world. Like that, perhaps I would. But the truth, that is not. Weak you are. And the tyranny of evil men I am. But trying, I am, Anakin. Trying I am, real hard, to a shepherd be.

But of course…there is no try. (Pulp Fiction)
