George Takei review
« on: December 31, 2013, 03:52:00 AM »
You all know him as Sulu from Star Trek. Some people know he's gay - he never hides it but also never makes a fuss about it. What you may not know is he trolls Amazon reviews, and the guy is funny as hell.

Quote
Brad and I will be Grand Marshals at this year's San Diego Pride Parade, and we were looking for just the right touch to add a bit of pizazz to our appearance. So when we stumbled across the PASSION NATURAL WATER BASED LUBRICANT - 55 GALLON drum, we felt we'd struck gold: "Just enough volume to soak an entire parade of spectators, and yet it fits easily in our float." Double win.

Now, how to spray the lube on the exicted on-lookers? Why, by water pump gun, of course. To test our delivery mechanism, we purchased a drum for our back yard and set up a slip and slide. I had Brad charge towards me down the slide, and I fired at will. It helped to imagine he was a Klingon Bird of Prey: Target that explosion and FIRE.

What I didn't expect was that Brad's forward momentum would cause him to crash into me, upending the entire drum along with us. Utter chaos. Our unfortunate cats, who had come out to judge our activities as cats will, were caught in the deluge. Looking like drowned rats, they howled and sped around the yard in hysterical circles, then tried for tn minutes to climb a tree.

Once again, the neighbors thought we'd set something on fire, so the LAFD arrived shortly afterwards. Try explaining any of this to a stranger, especially a hunky one in uniform. "Hose me down?" I offered. He kindly did, then retrieved our cats out of the tree with only minor scratches to the face.

I was absolutely fine reading this until the image of lube coated cats frantically trying to climb a tree hit me.

I have a daughter who's always posting something from George's Facebook page. The man's got opinions. And a definite wry outlook on life.

George is a regular and official announcer on Howard Stern's radio programming. George has given the audience stories between him and William Shatner and their trials and tribulations.

I think that he has that attitude because over his decades feud with William Shatner. If you read his interviews George has given, Shatner has this gigantic ego that the entire Star Trek franchise revolves around him and his character.

Interesting, SP. I saw that Shatner was a ham. But, I thought it was just a schtick.

I loved Star Trek back in the day. Now, some of the episodes are a little bit too silly even for me.

I've seen some of those. They're pretty funny.

Shatner even treats the fans like a piece of garbage. The old Star Trek has stood the test of time. But the new JJ Abrams reboot version is excellent. They picked Chris Pine as an excellent Captain Kirk. In the interviews he has given it looks like he does hot have a chip on his shoulder.

The "reviews" on the Passion Natural Water-Based Lubricant - 55 Gallon are beyond hilarious.  Someone @ work found it last week and we all about died laughing at some of the stuff people put and Amazon allowed.  Some are a little crude.
