dream shatner 490

Blog Guy, somebody told me that in addition to giving travel and career and fashion advice, you dabble in psychiatry as well…

Yes, now and then. I find there’s very little I can’t do if I just claim I can do it.

Well, I had that classic dream. You know the one. I don’t even like to say it out loud.

EQUESTRIAN/William Shatner in a buckboard?

Oh God! Yes, that’s it! With that weird, twisted smile.

Let me ask you this. Was Muhammad Ali there, too?

Yes. Waving at me, from a blue convertible. I think he’s trying to pass Shatner’s buckboard.

Oh, and I forgot. Shatner was wearing a white hat. That seems to have some symbolism in your blog. So, can you make me normal?

shatner crop 240Yes. But as a formality, I need to give your name and address to a Government Death Panel.

I understand. I guess it’s your legal and professional obligation, right?

Not really, but they give me a few extra bucks  to toss some nutjobs their way.

Damn I need to pay more attention to my TV program guide. If I had known the World Equestrian Games were on I would not have wasted my Saturday outside doing stuff!

Are we absolutely sure this isn’t a wax figure of the Shat?

He floated like a butterfly, stung like a bee, the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali.

Bloated and boorish, of bad acting the epitomy, don’t wear a red shirt around William Shatnee.

New in the Psychology Today Book Club: Shat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss.

@Shra: close to your hidden meanings?

Nice Nosmo, very nice. :)

One, I can’t believe “Shat” gets past Mr Spam Filter!

Mr. Spam Filter is American, Crow, and he doesn’t get out much. Nobody over here uses that word to mean what you think it means….

We see who ranks in this parade. Ali gets the car, Cap’n Kirk gets the horse. Beam me up, Scotty. I’m out of doughnuts. Don’t get any horsesh*t on my white hat!!! (substitute the letter of your choosing)

Nice one, Onedoor!

Oh really Mr. B.? You sure of that? Shall I give it a try and see what Mr. Spam Basket Filter really thinks? ;)

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive
 

Thanks for the offer, ifly, but no.

I know Mr. Spam Basket Filter is really, really tired of having people try to get stuff past him, and is quickly losing patience with the process. I think maybe he’s having trouble at home.

Basing my opinion on Mr. Shatner’s icky face, I think he might himself be taking some “treatment” for his condition.
Also, I would pay someone five dollars to scare the crap out of the horse so Mr. Shatner could roll right off the back of the buckboard.

I am just razzin with ya Mr. B. I would never intentionally take advantage of Mr. Spam Basket Filter. :D
