Image Search: "The Shat"

Yet another feature I haven't gone back to in a while, but I thought it might be fun to revisit. You know, Leonard Nimoy been's getting all the love lately. He's soon to be onscreen in Star Trek, returning to his iconic role. He's been cast in Fringe as a creepy scientist guy. Now, it's being reported that Michael Bay wants him to voice one of the Transformers in the sequel coming up this summer.

Are we all forgetting who the true Star Trek icon is? I'm talking, of course, of the Shat. So, to honour Canada's greatest living actor (suck it, Christopher Plummer), I commenced a search of some iconic images. Here's a sample of the best:

That's right, bitches, you think the Shat was only big for the Trek and Boston Legal? You're forgetting his role as the toughest of car hood hugging beat cops, TJ Hooker. This leads to a fantastic question: Who would win in a fight, Hooker or Kirk? I think we all know who would nail Heather Locklear first. As for Adrian Zmed, we all know which Star Trek crewmember would nail him first. I'm looking at you George Takei.

I like to think of this as the Shat's Vegas period. You know, at this point, he'd probably sign a contract to a six month gig at the Sands, delighting countless dozens with his truly bizarre renditions of Mr. Tambourine Man and Rocket Man, then closing by recommending people hit the buffet and try the shrimp cocktail.

Jesus, did the Shat stoop so low as to appear on Match Game, or something? Uncomfortably sandwiched between Jamie Farr and Charles Nelson Reilly thinking, "Just you wait. When Lorne Greene dies, I'll be Canada's greatest living actor, and then you can all suck my balls. Stop mentioning Christopher Plummer, seriously".


Without any hyperbole, this might be the greatest photo in existence.

Yep, so while Nimoy may be getting all the press right now, he couldn't possibly have anything to match the above photos, could he? Could he?
