'Star Wars' meets The Onion in these amusing headline mashups

Tumblr user Skygawker creates a series of images using "Star Wars" scenes to highlight headlines from the satirical news site The Onion. May the Farce be with you.

The Force is strong with satirical news site The Onion. Tumblr user Skygawker released a series of images showing that not only can humans on Earth relate to the smirk-inspiring headlines from The Onion, but so can creatures in a galaxy far, far away.

The images were posted to Skygawker's blog, A Certain Point of View, on Sunday, and each is a screenshot from one of the six " Star Wars" movies alongside an actual headline from The Onion.

The result is gems like the headline "Family spends awkward, silent quality time together" against an image of Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker after Luke surrenders to Vader in the Battle of Endor, or my personal favorite: the headline "Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who gives a sh*t about rich, lustrous hair" with an accompanying image of a young adult Anakin Skywalker with his luscious locks.
