37 years ago, william shatner launched an unprecedented television sci-fi attack on the american public. (warning: disturbing images). i think this speaks for itself.

In related news, Shatner says Star Trek is 'old hat', and publicly distances himself from modern incarnations.

Satellite photos show massive movements amongst Trekkie troops. Global leaders are concerned.

see also the second national church of shatnerology, and the standardized 'should i stalk william shatner?' test. unfortunately for all of us, the most holy-n-high church of the blinding light of the holy glowing™ form of the one toupeed and gloriously bloated shatner is no more. a moment of silence, before spock breaks out the salsa and starts to sing about bilbo.

Quonsar - Hey, you got me to thinking: Is Saddam Hussein actually William Shatner in disguise?...And is Shatner secretly playing Richard Perle too? (!!).....*menacing drum roll...dum dum dum dum dum dum........*

In other news:

53 Years ago today, Mrs. Olaf Siggurdson woke up to find that her favorite cow had frozen solid while standing up during the record breaking cold of the winter night. "It was such a shame", said Mrs. Siggurdson, "I feel so guilty that I forgot to put her in the barn on account of Earl got drunk the night before and ran his car into a ditch on the way home from the Elks Club. She was such a fine milker and all. It's a shame." (as reported in the Lake Wobegon Daily Dispatch, of Lake Wobegon, Wisconsin, March 16th 1950.)
