It's Shatner Day!

It's William Shatner's 80th birthday today.

Today is Talk Like William Shatner day. Everyone, put your hands out in front of you, put your elbows together, and make a speech about Humanity, while

Making. Every. Word. [pause] Sound. Like. Its. Own. [pause] Sentence.

Here's a helpful video by Canadian voice actor, Maurice Lamarche who's really good at it.

And a classic from the Master himself:

Happy Birthday Bill!

The man's eternal. He doesn't look a day over forty-eight.

Now, if I can just get myself inside a transporter to rescramble my molecules...

I think it's too bad that for a lot of folks I know, Shatner is just the wacky conservative guy on the recent (2002-09 or thereabouts) television show "Boston Legal" -- the guy who provokes all the other lawyers and serves a dual dramatic purpose as laughingstock and fall guy provoking all those liberal sanctimonious politically correct closing arguments. Star Trek seems like Shakespeare by comparison.

Glad it gives you a smile Hilary.
