May the Horse Be With You

Fun thing to do today: try to notice how many times the word “force” is used in news stories. Randall Munroe of xkcd does this text replacement thing every once in a while. This one just happens to have funnier results than most. Remember to go to the webcomic to see the hidden hover text.

You don't have to horse me to read xkcd.

This reminds me of an early Smothers Brothers comedy album titled "Tour de Farce", which, being 9 years old, I needed my parents to explain to me was a take-off on "Tour de Force" (or, today, Tour de Horse). That was pivotal in starting my interest in wordplay and puns, do blame Tom & Dick Smothers.
