Today, after the collapse of the Empire, some Stormtroopers were able to retrain and have successful new careers. Not us, we can't even hit the right notes. FML

Time to nerd out here. These aren't imperial storm troopers. They are first order storm troopers by the helmet style (like from the new movie). They were never part of the empire, being that they would be in their 50's if they were 20 when the empire fell.

One reads what they expect. Empires are present in both, and troops from both universes begin with 'storm.' If one is more into, or more recently played Skyrim than saw/read Star Wars material, it's a natural inclination to tend towards. For example: I have a dig bick. You that read wrong. That awkward when you switched the words. You most likely added moment in a place it did not exist. This is a common example of how people see what they expect. Most people will make multiple mistakes reading those sentences, as the first sentence contains a nonsense word which could be made sensical through a spoonerism. The second is a realization of the initial error that draws the attention away from another likely spoonerism. The third sentence takes advantage of the fact that many phrases are so ingrained into ones psyche that even if the entire phrase is not present, but merely hinted at, it is completed by the mind, and the reader doesn't at first realize their error. The final sentence brings one's attention to the final possible mistake. TL;DR People see what they expect to, not necessarily what is actually present.
