Hope this is not too political, and I figure I cant be the only one on here who is a fan. I got the biggest laugh out of this today. looks like its 6 months old, but first time I had heard of it.

That's funny!

I think it may be a disservice to Mr. Nemoy though.  That nose is huge.   ;D

What? Spock died? Ive been avoiding the news lately because I'm expanding the forum rules to the rest of my daily life. No Politics! Its working great but occasionally you miss out on something that actually matters, like no more Spock. I need to empty out my DVR to get ready for the marathon

Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

There was another clip that said Canadians have been turning that note into Spock and Severous Snape (spelling) from Harry potter. Even more geekery,  my apologies

I once got an American $5 where they turned Abraham Lincoln into Hagrid and wrote "You're a wizard, Harry" next to it.  Should have saved it, it was awesome.

[edit]  The one I got is not as good as this one:

My favorite is Andrew "Scissorhands" Jackson
