Quiz: 'Star Wars' name, ballplayer, or Thai food?

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars, we've put together a very odd quiz. Almost as odd as some of the names in the Star Wars series.

Star Wars just turned 30, and with it, a whole slew of silly names just turned 30, too.

Greedo? Oola? Pablo-Jill? Isn't anyone in space just named Steve?

There are enough silly names in the Star Wars universe to inspire an equally silly game, so I've gone ahead and done that.

Of the words below, all you have to do is figure out whether each one is a Star Wars character, a baseball player from the days of yore, or a Thai food dish. You'll be amazed at how hard it can be.

Good luck! The answers appear in the TalkBack section below, which is practically begging for you to list your favorite Star Wars characters, baseball names, and other silly words.
