"Shatner's toupee abducted by aliens!"

The Weekly World News is a tabloid famous for its sensational headlines about UFO abductions, Elvis sightings and all the rest of it. But back on 7th February 1995, they did a story (based on a report by the British Sun newspaper) on William Shatner that was - shock! - entirely accurate. The above article relates to an incident in which radio DJ "MJ Kelli" asked Shatner about his toupee, which infuriated the actor, prompting him to say "I don't wear a hairpiece." See here for more on the incident - we ruled on Shats' denial in that case with out Shat-no-meter here.
