National Talk Like Yoda Day, It Is

May the 21st be with you, yes?

Thirty-eight years ago, on May 21, 1980, the world was introduced to a little green Einstein-looking puppet with terrible grammar named Yoda.

National Talk Like Yoda Day celebrates the anniversary release of "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back," the movie where Luke Skywalker meets Yoda in the swamps of the planet Dagobah.

To talk like Yoda, but “do or do not, there is no try.” Just switch around your sentence structure.

Speak in object-subject-verb instead of the normal subject-verb-object. Add "yes" and "hmmm" to the end of your sentences for a bonus.

Love it, your coworkers will.

More "Star Wars" is coming at you this week with "Solo: A Star Wars Story" premiering Friday, May 25.
