A variety of Star Wars references and links await in our latest edition of Star Wars is Everywhere. If you see something while out and about or notice an applicable link online, please make sure to bring it to our attention. If it fits the bill, we'll be sure to include it in subsequent editions. Until then, enjoy!

Our veggie carving friend Oki from Japan provided the images above from the May 16th Kobe festival parade. (click on the pics for full views) While Oki and his friends represented the Jedi Order, numerous fan organizations took part. Star Wars music was played by a live band on the back of a truck, the Jedi Order provided a lightsaber demonstration, and if you look closely, there sure are a lot of Fanboys shirts in attendance. (Thanks as always to Oki for his contributions)

The Straight Dope invokes references to The Empire Strikes Back as they look at the positives and negatives of salt. That's right, salt. (Thanks to Joseph V. for the link!)
