While scrolling through the treasure trove that is The Presurfer, I came across a site that is dedicated to possibly the World’s Worst Actor. He is to acting what Wing is to music**. The site offers, among other things, a lesson on “How to speak like Shatner,” “Shatner Self Defence,” [It’s a British site] and “The Kama Shatra.” 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 you’re thinking. “Yo, Jimbo, so he’s a lousy actor, but he probably is a swell guy in real life.” 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 Shatner’s version of “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” and if after listening to that you haven’t died of terminal hair pain, click on “Mr. Tambourine Man.” For a Special Bonus, don’t miss Leonard Nimoy rockin’ the house with “Proud Mary.”
