Y is for Yoda

That's right. Er...Right that is.

Some characters are so wonderful they become part of our cultural consciousness. Yoda is just such a character. So, what makes Yoda a character everybody loves?

1. Yoda is all wise: There is something appealing about characters who know what they are doing, or who are masters at whatever they do. Yoda and Obi Wan are in this group. They are leaders you can follow. If it is possible to use the force to do something, Yoda can do it. There is no question that he is the master, and you never know what will happen with those kinds of skills.

2. Yoda is subtly kick-butt: Not much explanation needed. You are someone who is not Yoda. Can Yoda whip your trash? Yes he can.

3. Yoda is quirky: Quirky he is. Think of him we do when speech patterns passive strange become. So unique and strange he is, forgotten easily he is not.

So many reasons to love Yoda. Being voiced by Frank Oz doesn't hurt either :) So, yeah, what else can you think of to love about Yoda?

  2. A perfect Y. And a good reminder that fantastic things come in very small packages - something I had to remind my daughter when she was in high school!

  3. Yoda found humor in even the small things.

  4. And he's cute. Well, in a little, green, wrinkled sort of way.

  5. Haha great choice for a Y, and I loooved your Yoda talking ways, Yoda is one of my all time favorite characters, I love how he dedicated all his life for the JDI and that he saw both the golden age and the time of disaster, and that the last thing he did before he died is train the new JDI Master who will restore all that was lost, Thanks for sharing :)

  6. "Do or do not, there is no try". Great continuing-use quote. Gotta love the Yoda.
