Ah... interesting question. The vast majority (if not all. I just don't like saying ALL of them do) do orbit the center of the galaxy. The interesting thing is that the galaxy itself (the arms of a spiral galaxy for example) do not spin in the same direction as the stars do. I forgot if they don't spin at all or if they spin backwards, but this is because a phenomenon similar to traffic jams. As cars (stars) approach the traffic jam (arm), they gradually slow down, and go through the traffic jam at a slower pace... but eventually they exit the traffic jam, but the jam stays in the same place.

I beg to differ - I took a picture of a Milky Way this morning, not to mention a Mars Bar and some M&Ms

hmm is our solar system in a fixed possition in the galaxy or does it spin in a orbit or something?

It is of course a photo of another galaxy, but it is not a joke. It is a sign which can be found in that galaxy. It tells you where you are.

Bob, you mean to say that you believe this is not "Actually" our galaxy. Hey, duh. It's a joke, man.

Yeah, that's what I was going to say. Actually, you are not. That's a picture of a different gallaxy. It is not only impossible to take an actual picture of the milky way right now, but the milky way is a bar galaxy, meaning it has a bar in the center.
