Just as an aside.


Star Trek's Mr. Sulu --- George Takei --- came out of the closet this week. O.K., hurray, pride and all that, but, did he really have to describe his gay experience as something that “began as a narrow corridor that starts to widen?”

Way TMI, Mr. Sulu.

Chekov, who roomed with Takei for several years, could not be reached for comment.

Apparently, he had boldly gone where no man had gone before.

I've got a pretty nice ringmaster I could introduce him to.

Have to do it:
Did you see that episode where a bunch of furry gay guys were on the space station and ate all the grain?... I think it was "The Trouble With Homos"

Captain Kirk: "Well, that explains the time I found him in my quarters in the Yeoman Janice Rand wig."

Spock: "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the WTF?!? Sulu's gay?! I KNEW IT!"

Kinda gives new insight on why he was always increasing thrust to warp factor 8, now, doesn't it?

Submariner said...

And I guess that space was NOT "the final frontier..."

Sorry McCoy, but that "Bones" nickname always does something for me, and no, that is NOT a tricorder...

Anyone actually suprised by this must be operating with a Soviet era gaydar...

Just freakin' wonderful... Now the Enterprise is gonna need extra room for an ACLU contingency and holodeck training programs dealing with tolerance.

Upon hearing the news, Jerry Seinfeld said "NOT that there's anything wrong with that..."

Bubbalove said...

Remember that scene in Star Trek: The Motion Picture when Lieutenant Ilia enters the bridge and Sulu trips all over himself to show her to her position? What acting!

or

Did you ever notice how Sulu would grin a little everytime Kirk, Spock or McCoy said the word 'wormhole'?

"My narrow corridor widened over time as I repeatedly delved into the issue of my sexuality..."

"My narrow corridor widened over time as the Klingons continued to fire probes into my sexuality..."

Mussolini said...

"At first, I had a hard time swallowing... the idea... but after getting a grip on it, I found that swallowing the idea wasn't so hard."

oh gosh.... this is too much

Mussolini said...

"Captain, there's something out there. It's big and getting harder.. I mean, closer."

Mussolini said...

"He's coming around for another pass at our ass, Captain!"

"For Halloween this year, I'm going to dress up as a roll of toilet paper -- then I'll hang around Uranus searching for Klingons."

Sulu: "Yes, my phaser is always set to stun, baby!"

Mussolini said...

Sulu: Captain's log, stardate 4703.22. We have entered the Tie Tass system and are investingating a spatial analo... anal... analomy..."

Ensign: "Anomaly, sir."

Sulu: Thank you, Ensign. Tight... I mean, sharp uniform, ensign."

Ensign: "Thank you, sir."

Sulu to recorder: "We are investigating a spatial anal... a spatial analo... a spatial anomaly and have determined that it is a tunnel to somewhere unknown. I am greatly aroused... greatly intrigued.
"Several probes have been fired into the anal... have been inserted into the analo... probes... anal... and um... the pulses sent from the probes.. um into the anal... um...."

Ensign: "You're sweating, sir. Are you okay?"

Sulu: "This analo... this anal corridor... um... these vibrating, pulsing, strong thrusts... I mean probes.... and...

Ensign: "Ensign Dover to sickbay."

Sickbay: "Yes, Ben?"

Ensign Ben Dover: "The captain has lost it again."

Sickbay: "Another spatial anomaly?"

Ensign Ben Dover: "Affirmative."

Sickbay: "Escort him down. We'll give him another colonoscopy and he'll feel alot better."

Captain, the Klingon ship is right on our tail! This is soooo exciting! Should I lower our shields, or keep playing hard-to-get and hope they make another pass?

Does this jumpsuit make me look fat?
