In "related" news, I was working at an ad agency in Germany a few years ago, and an (American) Art Director was presenting an ad with the headline "Full Throttle," at which point all the native German speakers began chuckling. Turns out it sounds very similar to Voll Trottel, which means total moron.

Is this for real?
I find it a little hard to swallow.

McCoy throttles Spock in space while some sort of space dandy watches on.

This one made me laugh. No matter the plot on an episode of Star Trek, it seems there was always at least one space dandy around.

Still, you can't beat a Corley.

This is cool. But I have to ask, what's going on in this one?

There appears to be some kid who is President who decides to wave while getting choked by some guy who's got nothing below his torso other than a moving cart. And a full-blooded Indian is coming to his rescue.

And a full-blooded Indian is coming to his rescue.

Is it possible he is only 1/16 Cherokee?

Or only a full-blooded cartoon Indian?

After all he is Chief of the FBI!
