We asked our Facebook friends to write a caption for this Associated Press photo of a light-saber class. The best caption earns a free large pizza from Miner Moe's Pizza in Nevada City. Here are some of this week's top offerings:

10. James Owen — Over? Nothing is over 'til we say it is! Was it OVER when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? "Germans?" . . .

9. Dana Wallace — Pizza cutting class at jedi school.

8. Chris Ten Eyck — Jedi speed dating seemed like a great place to meet women.

7. Katrina Godin-Myers — "They can take my guns but they will never take my light saber!"

6. Troy Steinbach — One time "at nerd camp"…

5. Dan Williams — Don't be jealous people, we'll be saving your (lives) in the zombie apocalypse, yeah, then those light sabers won't be so nerdy, eh?

4. Peter Krogh — "Feel the sabercise, you must."

3. Rob Lambert — Now that I've remodeled my parents basement, we can finally hold our council meetings here …
