Caption contest!


"Is that a toupee or are you just pleased to see me?"

What's going on in the above behind-the-scenes picture from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, sourced via trekcore.com? Is it toupological shock or awe or both? Time for another reader's humorous caption contest, we think! As always, the winner "receives" a prize, which in this case "is" a rare 3D collector's map of the entire main WSSTS complex! Roast away - we look forward to reading your ideas!

On a side note, perhaps one of the most memorable things about the above Spock neck-pinch scene from ST:IV is the "I Hate You!" music playing on the punkster's "Boom box". Here's the complete song, which as noted in the YouTube clip, was actually written by the movie's associate producer Kirk Thatcher.



Why has this instantly memorable song never been covered properly? Perhaps by the band "Shatner's Hairpiece" (another pop-culture homage to William Shatner's toupee). By the way: Kirk and Thatcher - there's a hair association there too, one that can mess up your sub-conscious and lead to embarrassing moments like these (warning, this clip may make you cringe!):

  4. You get a real glimpse in the "Thatcher" clip what an asshole Shatner is. I'm hoping that the toupascope will focus like a laser on the Edward Katz institute and finally catch Shat walking into the store. Bill- Fuck you and the horse you rode in on.

  5. Oh and one more thing to the conservatives that are "giving up" this blog after the recent policial post. You know you can't do it. The pull of the toupee is too strong. You continue to check in as you always do, maybe post under a different name but the fact remains, you need this blog. I need this blog. Sure, you'll try to replace it with a toupe blog with Travolta or Reynolds. It won't work. You'll hunger for the One and Only True Shat Toup. And you'll be back if you're not back already. For me I don't always want to read about toupees, but when I do, I prefer ShatToup. Stay thirsty for the toupee my friends.

  6. Thanks for your comments "Most Jerk" - just so we present a counter-point for discussion (we always welcome polite debate!): a strange guy comes up to you with a microphone calling you "Mr Thatcher" - is Bill Shatner's reaction so unwarranted? Anyway, thanks for all your caption ideas - keep them coming! -ST

  7. "The hair. I just envy the hair. Is it a dominant gene?"

  8. Actually I thought Shatner handled it as politely as possible. I would've been a lot more rude if some idiot came up to me and shoved a microphone in my face and called me by some other name.

  9. An ambush interview from some twelve-year old who can't even pronounce his name? TJ Hooker would have said: "Get that microphone out of my face, punk!"

  10. Ok Ok, you guys are right about the interview. But Sulu and I stand behind the horse comments!

  15. "Hell toupee" - there's a win.

    What a gracious way to handle it - "I do actually. Thanks." So . . . Canadian.
