Subject: BS: William Shatner Croaks!
From: GUEST,Tekman

It's true! And it's just awful how it happened. This is no April Fool's joke. William Shatner croaked this afternoon in front of a studio full of horrified extras and film crew, while filming a scene in a blockbuster movie intended to be released next Christmas.

The film, "Telstar 3000", is an outer space epic, featuring groundbreaking special effects. Its plot has to do with an Earth expedition in the year 3000 to the outermost rim of the Galaxy, where Hallie Berry and Tom Cruise lead a crew of American misfits into the swamps of Telstar, a strange new alien world, peopled by bizarre creatures and semi-human shape-shifters.

The veteran Shatner, a space movie icon, was portraying the leader of the diabolical shape-shifters...a hugely bloated, semi-human swamp creature resembling a gigantic and disgusting toad-frog-man with a penchant for interspecies sexual antics. The part required Shatner to puff out his throat and thorax and bug out his eyes...at which he is frankly already quite adept...and then to utter a series of strange, guttural sounds, while attempting to force his attentions on Miss Berry, fetchingly clad in a skintight jumpsuit.

Never one to hold back, Shatner bulged his eyes out hideously, sucked in a big breath of air...and CROAKED!

"It was awful," said a sobbing extra. "I've been a fan of his for years, and I never expected to see something like this happen on a soundstage in Hollywood. Never. I am completely shattered."

Ripples of shock are spreading across Lala Land even as I speak, and this promises to be a very big story to kick off the month of April here in Tinseltown.

Hey, I saw him on TV last night and the night before, in a pseudo reality-based thing called Invasion Iowa.

It's very funny.

I am sad. I took this very seriously when I saw the thread name. Then I see it is a dreadful joke. Not funny!! There was the inane "Obit: Little Hawk" thread today. That was bad enough. Now I was led to believe that the Great Man himself had died. It is a sad thing to see someone take Shatner so lightly.

Sure, he is an easy target. His acting is brilliant. Many cannot see the genius in his methods, but, in years to come, long after Mr Shatner has really passed on, aspiring actors will diligently study his style. There will be more Shatner imitators than Elvis & Stevie Ray wannabes combined!

But, aside from his acting, look at his contribution to music! Sure, he's an easy target for ridicule here, also. But few understand his exceptional approach. Bob Dylan said that Shatner's version of "Mr. Tambourine Man" "...captured the essence of the song! He makes it his own & sings it as it is meant to be sung!!" And Dylan said this even after the "Shatner/Dylan" recording sessions fell apart, due to what Shatner called "a personality clash".

Look also at Tom Jones, the hip thrusting "What's New, Pussycat" singer, who would still be an unknown Welsh folksinger had it not been for Shatner.

Woody & Pete, as well as Arlo, hold the Man in high esteem, due in part to his ability to "turn a ripe phrase" while songcrafting.

Make fun of him if you must. But, when we do lose Shatner, we lose a GREAT MAN!

Never, NEVER use a tribble as a suppository. This would amount to cruelty to animals.

Using tribbles as suppositories would appear to be pointless.

But I suppose you could sharpen each one before insertion.

Exactly!! Had Shatner chosen a life of criminality instead of gracing us with his amazing acting & sining talents, we may have had far more unresolved murders than we can imagine. I am certain he could have marvelously committed the "Crime of the Century" and never been suspected! But then....maybe he did...

I do hope it doesn't turn into a handsome prince.

It'd be better than the alien birth scene in the first ALIEN film.

That is a darned good article, and I'd have to say I agree with it. Shatner is, indeed, a very good actor, and the main reason that the first Star Trek series got off the ground at all. Nimoy also became a tremendous asset, but without Shatner...no go!
