We don't know if you've heard, but there's this little movie out, called Star Wars: The Force Awakens. People are going berserk.

The iconic theme music is playing everywhere from newscasts to car commercials, while folks dust off their best Chewbacca impression. And, here at the CBC, a serious debate broke out over whether lightsaber is spelled s-a-b-r-e or s-a-b-e-r.

(We settled on lightsaber.)

But Channel 5's Sian Welby has taken this Star Wars fever to a whole other galaxy with her pun-filled weather report. Take a look.

As you probably know, at As It Happens we take our puns very seriously. How many did you count? 

Sian Welby, you are Obi Pun Kenobi. We Imperial salute you.
