While scrolling through the treasure trove that is The Presurfer, I came across a site that is dedicated to possibly the Worldâ€™s Worst Actor. He is to acting what Wing is to music**. The site offers, among other things, a lesson on â€œHow to speak like Shatner,â€ â€œShatner Self Defence,â€ [Itâ€™s a British site] and â€œThe Kama Shatra.â€ For those of us who derive some inexplicable pleasure (albeit like picking at a scab) from watching Shat do his stuff, this site is a must.
I know what youâ€™re thinking. â€œYo, Jimbo, so heâ€™s a lousy actor, but he probably is a swell guy in real life.â€ I have never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Shatner, but this guy did, and he was not impressed.
**Although it is difficult for me to imagine that anyone could commit a musical tort more effectively than Wing, the Shat deserves honorable mention. Go here, and select William Shatnerâ€™s version of â€œLucy in the Sky with Diamonds,â€ and if after listening to that you havenâ€™t died of terminal hair pain, click on â€œMr. Tambourine Man.â€ For a Special Bonus, donâ€™t miss Leonard Nimoy rockinâ€™ the house with â€œProud Mary.â€
