“How did Darth Vader know what Luke got him for his birthday?"/"He felt his presents.”

A Star Wars riddle is:

Q: How did Darth Vader know what Luke got him for his birthday?
A: He felt his presents.


Christmas (instead of birthday) is also used in the riddle. The pun is using “presents” for “presence.”

The joke was posted on the newsgroup rec.arts.sf.starwars.misc on December 27, 1997.
