December 13, 2015 – Since 1975, Saturday Night Live has been poking fun of politicians, celebrities, the absurdities of everyday life, and just about any topic you can think of. Now in its 41st season, SNL last night took aim at adult Star Wars collectors.

Kids: The Force is with us!
Adult nerds: And us – Yeah, us, too.

Ahhh, wisdom from the mouth of babes. Now, back to your collection….
