The real reason Kylo Ren turned to the dark side [SPOILERS AHEAD]

Okay, so if I haven't made you listen to me blab on about Dad Joke Han Solo yet, let me do so now.

Dad Joke Han Solo is a parody Twitter account I created BECAUSE I wrote this comic. The rough timeline goes something like this.

Dec 27 - My dad, sister and I all go to see The Force Awakens. My dad is big ham, and enjoying the movie with him got me thinking about what Han Solo would be like as a father. I wrote down the idea to explore in a future script.

Jan 11 - Dad Joke Han Solo becomes a full script and I send it to Aaron. But I have so many jokes I couldn't fit into the script! I keep them in a text file in case I get a chance to use them later.

Jan 12, 6:00 pm - I create a secret Dad Joke Han Solo Twitter account because I want to reserve the name in case I decide to post my jokes there. I make a few confused Tweets as Han trying to understand Twitter and then close it down for the night.

Jan 13

Jan 14 - Dad Joke Han Solo has spread to Buzzfeed, Mashable, Distractify and too many other places to list. I am Tweeting a lot, but behind the scenes, I am compiling a massive buffer of Tweets. Literally a list of 150-200 extras, although some are variations on the same core joke. People Tweet or message me jokes and I save them in a separate file so I can attribute them from my @rockpapercynic account.

Jan 15, 1:00a - Sometime around now Dad Joke Han Solo passes 10,000 followers.

Jan 16 - God, the Facebook page, says he approves of Dad Joke Han Solo and posts about it on Facebook. By the end of the night, the follower count is at 16,000.
