Make Up Obi-Wan Facts and Win A 'Star Wars' DVD [Contest]

Sorry, but this contest is now closed.
Make up facts about Obi-Wan Kenobi and you can win a DVD of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back!

The Prize
  • A DVD of Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980 & 2004 Versions, 2-Disc Widescreen Edition).
No Star Wars fan should be without this. It's considered the best of the series and has the theatrical and CGI version. The best of both worlds. You or the Star Wars fan in your life will love it.

How to Win
The contest is to make up facts about Obi-Wan Kenobi like Chuck Norris facts. For those not familiar, these are facts that make ridiculously overblown claims about his power and abilities. Some examples would be:
  • The Force says, "May the Kenobi be with you."
  • Obi-Wan can't breathe in space. All the air is too scared of him.
  • The Empire almost named the Death Star the "Obi-Wan," but they thought it would be too scary.
Leave a comment with your fact using a valid email address. The best entry will be chosen by us and the readers.

Enter as many times as you like. If you're announced the winner, be prepared to provide your mailing address within 48 hours. If you don't respond, we'll award the prize to the second place winner.

Restrictions
  • Participation limited to U.S. residents only excluding Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Must be 18 years or older.
  • Contest runs from August 4, 2011 to August 18th, 2011 11:59 PM.
Hurry! This contest ends August18th! Make today the day you enter!

What can you tell us about Obi-Wan Kenobi (being impossibly great)? Which of the facts submitted do you think is best?

  9. I think these Star Wars facts are hilarious and I hate to stop them, but it also breaks our heart to disqualify these. Please remember the contest is for Obi-Wan facts only. We may do another contests for fake Star Wars facts down the road given the response, but for now we can only award the prize to Obi-Wan facts. Try again and keep it up!
