Where does this come from? Obviously the first half is from Star Wars but the expression is not from Spaceballs and some Googling doesn"t find anything.

In mallrats (the movie) they refer to smoking pot as "the dark side" using a stars wars reference which could bridge the gap between vader and cookies...

I was using "Join the Dark Side, win a cookie!" as my tagline in the Star Wars chatroom, Cloud City Cantina (www.outpost10f.com) from September 1999, and I have yet to see an earlier reference. I used the handle Darth Sidious, and when I log in on occasion, I still use this tagline.

The other "Sith" of the chat would then tempt new members with, "Join us! We have cookies!" and I have reason to believe that it may have stemmed from there.

I stopped regularly chatting there in about 2005, and the earliest reference I can find to it otherwise is about 2006.

So...yay me? :D :p
