GUEST,LynnT BS: William Shatner scores BIG!!! (89* d) RE: BS: William Shatner scores BIG!!! 20 Aug 01

A couple bits opf Shatner trivia.

In his lean days (so to speak) post-Star Trek and pre-Hooker, Bill did commercials to make ends meet. He worked for a Canadian grocery chain called Loblaw's (owned, of course, by Robert Loblaw, or "Bob Loblaw" to his friends). The slogan was "It's mainly because of the Meat" -- can't you just see him emoting that?

He did use his own horse in the Star Trek movie he did with McDowell and Patrick Stuart, while Stuart rode a livery-stable hack. Anyone who knows horses could see he had a clue in the saddle -- and yes, Spaw, it was a beauty.

Do any of you know the Japanese cooking competition show called "Iron Chef"? It's an inadvertently-campy show, set in "Kitchen Stadium", where outside chefs challenge one of a team of house chefs to a one-hour cookoff, Samurai style, to produce 5 courses with the week's mystery ingredient. It's a hoot. Apparently they're gonna do an Americal version set in Las Vegas -- and Shatner will be the emcee.
