We’re gearing up for more spring shows and around here we’re still kind of in a daze from George Takei being at our tapings last week. He’s every bit as genial and hilarious as you’d think. It was marvelous. I think the interviews went well but there were a few questions I should have asked.
QUESTIONS I SHOULD HAVE ASKED GEORGE TAKEI WHEN I HAD THE CHANCE
– Why did Sulu never have any scenes with Luke Skywalker?
– Isn’t the name of your show Star Track?
– When did you invent Facebook?
– Did you invent Facebook on the Milnumium Falcon?
– It IS Star Track, right?
– How can you not know the name of your own show, which is Star Track?
– When you were in Star Track, how far up into space did you actually go?
– Should the Seahawks have traded for Jimmy Graham, who gives them offense at tight end but cost them a starting center?
– If you were coaching the Seahawks, you would have handed the ball to Marshawn Lynch, right?
– Would any of your Star Track teammates NOT have given the ball to Marshawn Lynch? Maybe Jar-Jar Binks.
– With a name like “Klingon” (Cling-on), wouldn’t you have expected them to be more emotionally needy?
– Star Track!
Oh well. Next time.
