Play with Obi Wan Kenobi

Today on Pinterest, a couple of plays on the name Obi Wan Kenobi (of Star Wars fame): a Latino variant and a food variant. May the silliness be with you!

Obi Wan Cannoli

As is common with such playfulness on Pinterest, Tumblr, etc., no creator is credited with the images and their captions.

I thought I’d posted on cannoli before, but apparently not. Briefly from Wikipedia:

Cannoli … is an Italian pastry dessert of the Sicily region. The singular is cannolo…, meaning “little tube”, with the etymology stemming from the Arabic “Qanawat”. Cannoli originated in Sicily and are a staple of Sicilian cuisine. They are also popular in Italian-American cuisine. In Italy, they are commonly known as “cannoli siciliani”, Sicilian cannoli.

Cannoli consist of tube-shaped shells of fried pastry dough, filled with a sweet, creamy filling usually containing ricotta. They range in size from “cannulicchi”, no bigger than a finger, to the fist-sized proportions typically found south of Palermo, Sicily

Cannolo siciliano with chocolate squares

In American usage, the name of the pastry is generally cannoli: a cannoli, plural cannoli or cannolis. This is not Italian, but an Italian word adopted as a new English word.

    Yes, I know, #1 isn’t just any Latino, Juan’s a stereotypical Mexican.
