star wars reference convergence

3PO! Shut down all the garbage mashers on the detention level!

Yesterday I caught up on reading librarian blogs, and several of them I had not read since mid-February. One of those was the Librarian in Black, who may be prolific in the number of posts, but is thankfully brief in the content of those posts. Back in February, she pointed to a site that has a large collection of funny cat pictures. One of them includes a reference to a scene in Star Wars: A New Hope. It made me chuckle at the time, and then I saw today’s Unshelved strip. I just spent the past fifteen minutes trying to remember where I had seen something like that recently. Finally, after searching the past few days worth of comics, I remembered the cat picture site. Whew!
