    “Yes…………Mr Spock………I am aware……………who James Traficant………..was”

  2. steve says:

    “I told you Jim. Cornering the market on Donald Trump hairpieces was not a logical investment.”

  3. John Burgess says:

    Spock: “So, this is how I end up being remembered for all eternity… could be worse.”

  4. gVOR08 says:

    One of these is the top of Rand Paul’s head. Keep looking.

  5. Mu says:

    It’s odd captain, but the only entry in the computer network I found was a crossreference on the food network “see haggis”. Most perplexing.

  6. Liberal Capitalist says:

    Do these tribbles make me look fat?

  7. Guarneri says:

    Kirk: Damn! I’d like to roll around with Uhuru in a pile of these.

    Spock: My tricorder calculations indicate that with this weight and at the current rate of reproduction Scotty’s gonna call bitching about his engines “not holding up” in 6 hours.

  8. Liberal Capitalist says:

    You see, in a free market system, with no regulations, supply and demand will automatically balance over time. Unless you are dealing with the real world. or Tribbles.

  9. Guarneri says:

    Will Schallert: Hey, Whit, where the fuck did we go wrong? We’ve got movie and TV credits out the wazoo and here we are playing with sex toys on a set with an egomaniac space cowboy and a sociopath who needs plastic surgery and a new haircut.

  10. OzarkHillbilly says:

    Mine… Mine… MINE!!!! ALL MINE!!!

  11. rodney dill says:

    Kirk: “I see…. two problems…. here…. They’re all covered by ObamaCare…. and they all vote Democratic…
    Spock: “That is not logical.”

  12. rodney dill says:

    Kirk: “Star Fleet says our response must be through civil action. Know any good interstellar legal offices?”
    Spock: “How about Crane, Poole, and Schmidt?”

  13. OzarkHillbilly says:

    We have got to do something about that cat and his hairballs.

  14. RockThisTown says:

    The Intergalactic Agri Bill had too many turnip subsidies, resulting in a surplus crop.

  15. Paul Hooson says:

    The least favorite STAR TREK aliens? The Kardashians…

  16. Paul Hooson says:

    Make no Bones about it…

  17. Paul Hooson says:

    “Live long and prosper”? You just knew that Mr. Spock being Jewish, there would be something involving money in his greeting…

  18. RockThisTown says:

    “The first thing we have to do is seal the borders, then we’ll figure out what to do with them.”

  19. Paul Hooson says:

    Both Shatner and Nimoy were both Jews. Are you sure this wasn’t a seven year mission to find lost coins?

  20. Paul Hooson says:

    Since Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock were both Jews, if they entered a strip club on another planet, they would put pennies on the stage…with strings attached…

  21. Hal_10000 says:

    Captain, the story you told me about what people do with these tribbles is not logical.

  22. Paul Hooson says:

    “Wow, that’s some hairy balls!”

  23. Paul Hooson says:

    “Hey, who let Patty Duke’s dad beam up?”

  24. Paul Hooson says:

    “Strangely, Captain most of these balls are hairy. But, this one is shaved bald and pierced…. Is this their leader?”

  25. Paul Hooson says:

    The show almost got named PATTY DUKE’S DAD IN SPACE….But, there was that other show, LOUSED UP WITH SMITH on CBS….

  26. Paul Hooson says:

    Checking out the balls in the Enterprise locker room for signs of deflation before the big game…

  27. Paul Hooson says:

    The secret to the success of STAR TREK was that a hammy Shakespearian actor that played Dr. Smith and the robot didn’t hijack this show…

  28. Paul Hooson says:

    Given the fact that Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock were both Jews, I was deeply surprised the Enterprise wasn’t shaped more like the Star Of David…

  29. Paul Hooson says:

    Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock. Jews in space….But, then Mel Brooks did the remake as SPACEBALLS…

  30. Paul Hooson says:


  31. Paul Hooson says:

    If Rod Sterling directed this episode, then William Shatner would be trying to convince everyone that a Scotsman(Scotty) is on the wing of the ship. Then it lands, and while they’re hauling away the captain to the looney bin, a kilt is seen hanging from the ripped open engine on the side…

  32. Paul Hooson says:

    “Well, this episode sure took balls…”

  33. Paul Hooson says:

    While most people liked this episode, others thought it was sort of Tribble…

  34. Paul Hooson says:

    “While true Trekie nerds enjoy the original series….The horny guys had to wait many years for that hot Seven Of Nine to come along…”

  35. Paul Hooson says:

    Some guys wonder how old guys like Shatner and Nimoy were still about to enjoy sex at their age. Well, they set those phasers to stun and aimed them at their crotch…

  36. rodney dill says:

    “It’s just not logical that they’re all genetically identical to Sandra Fluke.”

  37. Paul Hooson says:

    Did you hear about that day when Scotty was having some mechanical trouble with the transporter and a supermodel was beaming up….Well, anyway, Linda Hunt was the result…

  38. Paul Hooson says:

    Leonard Nimoy. He was also THE GREAT PARIS on MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. Now he’s gone….The last time we’ve seen PARIS….

  39. Paul Hooson says:

    If Rod Sterling directed William Shatner in STAR TREK, there would be fortune telling machine with a devil head on the bridge…

  40. Paul Hooson says:

    Leonard Nimoy may be gone. But. no need to worry, Sam Donaldson is ready to step into the Mr. Spock role….And, he doesn’t need any makeup…

  41. al-Ameda says:

    “Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Spock …”

  42. Paul Hooson says:

    “Hey what’s the lawyer from BOSTON LEGAL doing on the Enterprise? Is he suing someone…”

  43. Paul Hooson says:

    The biggest differences between STAR TREK and LOST IN SPACE. No actor that played Zorro. No actress that played the mom on Lassie and the woman doctor on PETTICOAT JUNCTION. No hammy Shakespearian actor playing the first gay man in space exchanging insult humor with the robot, doing Abbott and Costello in space….

  44. Paul Hooson says:

    Unfortunately, Spock is no better than Shaq at free throws….And, to make matters much worse, with Tribble basketball rules, the balls only continue to multiply during the game…

  45. Paul Hooson says:

    Paul Hooson: “Strangely, I’m hairy enough that I was asked to stand in as Tribble…”

  46. Paul Hooson says:


  47. Paul Hooson says:


  48. Paul Hooson says:

    “Hey, what’s Sam Donaldson doing on STAR TREK?”

  49. Paul Hooson says:

    They say that cat hoarding is an illness….

  50. Franklin says:

    “Amazon’s new Time Travel delivery has a glitch – these hairpieces were meant for Captain Picard, and he only ordered one!”

  51. CSK says:

    “Captain, these appear to be the alien life form Paulus Hoosonus, about which we know very little other than that it replicates rapidly and crowds out other life forms.”

  52. Pinky says:

    “Jim, one twelfth of these tribbles are dead, and the rest are underinflated.”

  53. Pinky says:

    (muffled voice coming from the pile) “Mr. Shatner, you are the next Celebrity Apprentice.”

  54. rodney dill says:

    Eventually even Bjork agreed that this was the best Oscar dress ever….

  55. Paul Hooson says:

    @rodney dill: Bjork? Isn’t that Islandic for Yoko Oh No!

  56. Paul Hooson says:

    @rodney dill: Bjork? Isn’t that Islandic for “nails on a chalkboard” or “screeching tires running over a screeching cat watching Screech from SAVED BY THE BELL”?

  57. DrDaveT says:

    The Trouble with Tributes

  58. Pinky says:

    Knowing Kirk, you can bet there’s a girl under there.

  59. anjin-san says:

    But the Republicans had to eliminate the quality control regulations for Quadrotriticale, it was tyranny!

  60. Pinky says:

    Yeah, it’s humiliating, but it’s just a silly sci-fi TV show. It’s not like 47 years from now everyone in the world will be connected with computers and looking at pictures of this.

  61. Franklin says:

    Spock: “All these earmuffs, and none of them are the right fit!”

  62. markm says:

    MR SPOCK…….alll Tribbles…….must be stored……..on the Enterprise server……..per Federation rules.

  63. markm says:

    “Nobody knows…..the Tribbles i’ve seen…..”

  64. John D'Geek says:

    “True, Captain, they do make more sense than Congress.”
