SELANGOR:  Just days after commemorating the state’s Malaysia Cup win, today the Selangor government again won over residents by declaring tomorrow a public holiday to celebrate the long awaited release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Menteri Besar Azmin Ali said the public holiday recognises the state’s love for Star Wars and will reduce Cineplex chaos tomorrow.

“I had an appointment to get my hernia checked,”said a man in Klang,”but with KPJ specialist closed tomorrow, I’m off to the movies!  Star Wars here I come!”

This won’t be the first Star Wars public holiday. In 1999, the state took the day off to morn how rubbish Phantom Menace was.
This won’t be the first Star Wars event recognised by Selangor. In May 1999, the state observed a day of mourning after ‘Phantom Menace’ came out.
