“I tried to force-feed our son when my wife said, ‘Use the fricking spoon. You’re not a Jedi‘“

"Force-feeding” doesn’t involve the “Force” from the movies, but there are jokes. “When I was a child, my dad tried to force-feed me. After a while, my mum said, John ‘Just use a fucking spoon, . You’re not a Jedi...’” was posted on Twitter by Pope Tom Atkin on August 16, 2011. There are no likes to this tweet, so the source of the joke is unknown.


Wikipedia: The Force
The Force is a metaphysical and ubiquitous power in the Star Wars fictional universe. It is wielded by characters throughout the franchise: heroes like the Jedi use the “light side” of the Force, while the Sith and other villains exploit the “dark side”. The Force has been compared to aspects of several world religions, and the phrase “May the Force be with you” has become part of the popular culture vernacular.

My son was refusing to eat dinner, so I tried to force feed him.
My wife said, “Use the fricking spoon. You are not a Jedi.”
