Let me set something straight first: I have mad love for William Shatner. I think he's hysterical. I love his ability to be self-depricating. When, on Boston Legal a few weeks ago, they were talking about sea lice, and how they're called "cling ons," he paused and dramatically said, "Klingons?" and I haven't stopped laughing about it yet.
I really like that he's doing cheesy ambulance-chasing lawyer commercials here in St. Louis - the national kind, where it's obvious that in the one cut he says the name of the St. Louis law firm, and the next cut he said the name of some law firm in Duluth, and the next cut it was somewhere like North Platte.
I like that he even seems to have a sense of humor about his crazy bad singing career. And when I say crazy BAD, I mean it.
I love almost everything about him. But this latest stunt is a little weird.
He wants to sell his kidney stone on ebay. God help us all.
