BEATNIK BRAWL BOILS UP SOME BUZZ
As would have it, mere hours after I made yet another blog post about our dear William Shatner coming to Maui, said Shat goes and stirs up the weekend’s buzz on Conan O’Brien’s Tonight Show. So, here’s the additional skinny:
For all his extraterrestrial beast-battling, Shatner’s greatest foe may have been faced last week Friday, in a parody showdown with Sarah Palin.
Backed by bongos and a standup bass, Shatner read with with satirical staccato from Palin’s Going Rouge Going Rogue, “I looked down to see the moose’s eyeballs lying in his palm, still warm from the critter’s head… [T]here is plenty of room for all Alaska’s animals–right next to the mashed potatoes.”
So yes, this is my third Shatner-related post. But hell, I’m a card-carrying Trekkie with Shat on the eve of an on-isle visit—so I can’t not post about this, right?!
Yes. I know you must be inundated with ‘news’ of this Shatner-Palin encounter… But please, if you do nothing else, you must watch The Daily Show’s John Oliver, report from a New York City bookstore about Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue release. Few things on earth have made me happier!
