International Talk Like William Shatner Day

Today is William Shatner's 81st birthday and was officially declared International Talk Like William Shatner Day way back in 2009. Shatner 's break came when he was an understudy to Christopher Plummer at the Stratford Shakespeare  Festival doing HenryV. Mostly famous as Captain Kirk from the original Star Trek series and subsequent movies, Shatner is known for his overacting ability and self parody among other things. As an avid horseman he can't be all bad and with a good sense of humor can stand being the butt of some jokes.
Anyway, here's to you Bill! Many happy returns!

I can't help but like William Shatner! He certainly is one of a kind. :)

Nat, and he's Canadian, too, eh?

I'm going to have to share that video on facebook. Too hilarious. I also love that SNL skit he did years ago in front of the "Star Trek Convention." Thanks for this!

It's hard not to like someone who knows how to NOT take himself seriously. Love this.
