Best Of 2017: The 10 Greatest Darth Plagueis Prequel Memes

Star Wars prequel memes have been popular since as early as 2013, but this year there was one that really stood out from the rest. In Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Chancellor Palpatine tells Anakin a (long) story about a Dark Lord of the Sith, with the intent of pushing him closer to the dark side. The story is known as "The Tragedy of Darth Plageuis The Wise." 

As a meme, the tale is used as a copypasta. While unnecessary dialogue is removed in this context, the story is still pretty wordy. Memers becan incorporating them into memes everywhere from 4chan to Twitter. We've included our favorites - and the full copypasta in case you want to have some Darth Plagueis fun of your own.

"Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise? I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so powerful… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself."

Rick Perry Gets Meme'd After An Album-Cover Worthy Photoshoot In Saudi Arabia

US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry is the latest politician to become a Twitter meme after visiting Saudi Arabia in early December. Saudi Arabia's Energy Minister Khalid A. Al-Falih tweeted some amusing photos of the former Texas Governor's visit. One photo in particular, of Perry posing barefoot in the desert sand, seemed to resonate with Twitter users, who playfully made fun of his "bad boy" stance and his hobbit-like feet.
