Not to mention the boner headlines posted afterwards by slackjawed yokels so pleased with their boner jokes that they can't be bothered to check the main page. And don't forget the few that show up a week from now, possibly with NEWS FLASH tags attached.

Wow, hope they find him.

I never knew that "Boner" on Growing Pains and "Chekov" on Star Trek were related...

On "Growing Pains" Koenig played Boner, a pal of star Kirk Cameron's character Mike.

That statement is win on soooo many levels.

So Chekov's Boner is missing...
 
2010-02-22 04:21:31 AM  
"cool story, bro" time:

Yesterday morning there was a re-run of "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes".
I watched something else, but everytime I zapped during the commercial breaks, and Cameron's eager mug appeared on my heathen tv, I had the urge to yell "BANANA" at the tv.

That's all.
 
2010-02-22 04:23:16 AM  
Chekov's boner? I thought it was Kirk Cameron's boner that was missing.
 
2010-02-22 04:27:05 AM  
I never watched Growing Pains. So I guess I would have preferred some sort of Alfred Bester joke..
 
2010-02-22 04:42:56 AM  
On "Growing Pains" Koenig played Boner, a pal of star former sitcom actor Kirk Cameron's character Mike.

Andrew, best know as "Boner" from "Growing Pains", is a funny, caring,

Well, with a missing persons description like that, it shouldn't be too hard to locate him.

I wonder how much fun the writers had getting ol' banana hands to say "Boner" all day.

"I love the Boner. We can't do that to him!"
"Me and the Boner... all day"

When Chekov's Boner is seen in the first act, it is inevitably used in the third act.

I was never a fan of AK-47, but I do hope he's alright. Given that he was apparently depressed enough to begin with, can you imagine how pissed he must be knowing his obituary will list him only as Kirk Cameron's buddy?

I can only imagine what Walter Koenig is going through:

WALTER: I'd like to file a Missing Persons report for my son.

COP: Okay, what's his name.

WALTER: Andrew.

COP: Wait, you're Chekov!

WALTER: Yes, yes I am. My son is an actor as well.

COP: Really?! What did he play?

WALTER: The friend of that Jesus Freak on that ABC show, Growing Pains.

COP: The buddy? You mean that blond kid?

WALTER: No...the Italian guy.

COP: I thought you were Russian.

WALTER: No, I'm not..please, my son....

COP: Oh holy shiat, he played BONER!!

WALTER: ...yes.

COP: Oh my God, how did they ever get away with that? Was he a queen or something?

WALTER: Please, could you help me, my son is missing and he's been depressed lately--

COP: Who wouldn't be. His name is Boner.

WALTER: IT'S ANDREW!!

COP: ...Andy the Boner.

WALTER: GAHHH! HE COULD BE DEAD!!

COP: If my only acting role was some guy called Boner, I'd pray for death as well.

WALTER: You insensitive bastard!

COP: Plus, what does that say about you? You were part of a popular franchise and the only role your name could get your son was some Chachi ripoff called Boner? Come on, man, you have to realize you suck on nearly every level.

WALTER: Listen, could you just fill out the report?

COP: Sure. "Missing...one Boner. Please contact Kirk Cameron if you have any information for he's missing his greasy Boner."

WALTER: fark you, I'm going online.

COP: Later, Wessel of Boner.

WALTER: fark YOU!

COP: BOOOOOONNEEEERRRRRRR!!


Every day is a struggle.

lobootomy: Didn't Top Gear test drive one of those and conclude the car was almost undriveable? It went balls out on the straights and lost it in every corner.


No, it's perfectly capable of being driven. However, the car lacks downforce to a serious degree. The Stig went off track hard when he pushed the car too much, which is why I posted his picture with the "does not approve" caption in response.

Koenigseggseggseggseggsegg then brought the car back to the show with a "Stig Edition" that had a rear wing and improved downforce and the car set a very good time.

I honestly am not a big fan of the car. It's performance is impressive, but it looks like a 70's spaceship both inside and out. The only designs I find less appealing are cars from Spyker.

/Riveting tale, old chap.

THIS is my new name for Chekov from now on.
 
2010-02-22 10:06:21 AM  
I briefly met him at a party about 10 years ago. I was taking comedy classes here in L.A., and one of my classmates was throwing a little party at her house. My wife and I got there, and chatted with some of the people who I knew from the class, as well as someone who looked really familiar. I couldn't figure out if I went to high school with him, or knew him from some other class or something... I finally asked the woman who was hosting the party who the guy was, and she said 'Oh, he played Boner on Growing Pains'.

I hope they find him safe and sound.

/Cool story, bro
 
2010-02-22 10:15:45 AM  
For all of you making the joke about Chekov losing his boner:

DIAF.

Walter Koenig is a fine human being and a good actor. This is his son we're
talking about, and obviously he was going through a very tough time.

Still: I laughed, so I'll keep the icewater lukewarm for you when you all

Strangely enough, Walter Koenig lives in my neighborhood. I've seen him in line at the movie theater a couple of times, and I see him every once in a while at my post office. His PO Box is about 2 or 3 boxes over from mine. I've never spoken to him, because it just seems weird to bother him. Anyway, here is a picture that describes how he feels:

That always amused me when I was a kid.

Side note:

Back in junior high, was watching a basketball team on TV with my Grandpa. On of the players farked up on a play, and Grandpa said "He really pulled a boner on that one."
