Shatner's toupee in popular culture: Polly Pepper.
Final Curtain: A Polly Pepper Mystery (see here for more). The book is about the life of an ageing fictional television actress who ends up trying to solve a mysterious murder.
On page 248, we have this nugget:
"Soon Polly was making the rounds of several other tables. She air-kissed Megan Mullally, Bridget Fonda and Will Ferrell, and when her social chores were over she hugged her waiter, Kevin, good-bye and then settled into the back of the Rolls. She made comments about several of the restaurant's famous clientele. 'That's not a judgement,' she defended her sniggering at William Shatner's crooked toupee. 'It's merely an observation. Polly Pepper never says a negative word about her friends and colleagues.' "
