2001-11-06 05:14:35 PM  
This belongs in the great book of "Who Cares?"

"To boldly go"

at least the captin's log wasn't involved
2001-11-06 05:17:23 PM  
...which resembled the flatulence that can result from the roiling of gases in the intestine or stomach...

We get it. You had us at "flatulence".

whoa, Funky_Thrasher is in some kind of time warp
2001-11-06 05:18:37 PM  
Ya, but what is Leonard Nimoy's side of the story?
2001-11-06 05:19:00 PM  
Spock: "Captain, sensors are detecting large amounts of what appears to be 'Dirty Fart' eminating from the bridge.
2001-11-06 05:20:09 PM  
oh well. Shatner always was a dick.
2001-11-06 05:23:16 PM  
Dogsoul - We'll have to ask Nimoy that when he comes back around.
2001-11-06 05:24:55 PM  
"The sound... was somehow caused by "cables" that became "entangled" in a device known as a "jib arm" that held a "camera""

I used to think I knew what these "words" meant.
2001-11-06 05:24:56 PM  
Is there a real video clip or an mpeg or avi of this somewhere?
2001-11-06 05:28:33 PM  
What's even funnier is the seriousness with which they reported it...I could see this on E.T. as "Late Wind -breaking News"
2001-11-06 05:29:38 PM  
Spock-"Beam me up now,fer crissakes.Kirk crapped his pants."
Kirk-"That'll help you to live long and prosper,mutha fugger!"
2001-11-06 05:32:15 PM  
I'm so happy to see that the NY press is back to reporting typical news items like this.
This article proves we're winning the war on terrorism.
SHATNER FARTS! (War coverage, page 36.)
2001-11-06 05:32:33 PM  
At least he wasn't singing.
2001-11-06 05:32:33 PM  
Kirk - Set course for... Uranus.
Spock - Uranus is large and gassy is it not?
Kirk - Yes... It is.
2001-11-06 05:35:13 PM  
screw shatner!!!!!!!
2001-11-06 05:35:55 PM  
Shatner is the past tense of shiatner, so something is definitely up with his digestive system.
2001-11-06 05:36:38 PM  
Goku - Ok! I got a thing for that man and I don't even care if he farted. He's still a hottie...as long as you can swim, you can date him!
2001-11-06 05:37:02 PM  
The truly sad thing about this story is that it's probably going to _improve_ sales of the video.
2001-11-06 05:39:01 PM  
pathetic as hell, how desperate do you have to be to run this drivel. investors better jump ship like the rats they are.
2001-11-06 05:42:02 PM  
Dog's Hole?
2001-11-06 05:42:07 PM  
thats not what i meant CABOOZY you freak!!!!!
2001-11-06 05:42:30 PM  
2001-11-06 05:44:24 PM  
Feral-kiwi - man... have you heard him sing?
My Shatner list (most to least preferred):
- farting (ugh)
- singing (ouch)
- writing (FLEE!)

... at least his farts can't be that much worse than anyone else's ...
2001-11-06 05:46:03 PM  
I happen to love what William did with Fear of Pop (Ben Folds project) I think he has a style of his own and a velvety voice. Excuse me while I change my panties.
2001-11-06 05:47:42 PM  
Trouble with Tribbles? More like the Trouble with Burritos.
2001-11-06 05:48:16 PM  
I ... um ... call invocation on the great & benevolent Drew, a.k.a. "the all-seeing": dude, when are we going to catch up with Funky_Thrasher? Wazzupwithat?

( ... do you ever incarnate the Internet Oracle, BTW?)
2001-11-06 05:57:25 PM  
who really cares.... but, for the record... HE FARTED!
2001-11-06 05:58:50 PM  
France surrenders.
2001-11-06 06:00:19 PM  
Why the unholy fark is this news?
We really don't need to hear about this little squabble out in the real world...
2001-11-06 06:01:46 PM  
whoever smelt it dealt it.
2001-11-06 06:03:25 PM  
Captain Kirk is here to fart on the people of Afghanistan
2001-11-06 06:06:37 PM  
Damn it Jim, I'm a medical doctor not a gastrologist!
2001-11-06 06:06:55 PM  
Hey, he's old now!
It happens, you know?
2001-11-06 06:07:08 PM  
This must make Wil Wheaton smile, since Shatner is always such a farging bastige to him.
2001-11-06 06:07:29 PM  
I did not have sexual relations with that green woman.
2001-11-06 06:17:32 PM  
Blame it on the Tribbles
2001-11-06 06:18:39 PM  
I think we need a new tag: "The Shat"
Did y'all know ge have a LOT of money to MacGill University so he could have building named after him? I can see it: "Yeah, I got class in the Shat/ the Captain Kirk in fifteen..'
2001-11-06 06:25:50 PM  
Another name change, Wil: Now it's "WILLIAM FARTING SHATNER!"
2001-11-06 06:30:32 PM  
I tell you guys... he did fart. I heard the sound byte on the radio a few weeks ago.. he did seem to pause.. like he was aligning his arse for a fart (Or trying to prevent it) ... then "Prrrrrpp !!" and conversation continued...

Jib Squeak, eh ?

Highly Unlikely.
2001-11-06 06:45:12 PM  
do vulcans fart, i wonder?
2001-11-06 06:45:28 PM  
audio link, please! we all must hear Shatner sharing his pork & beans with Nimoy.
2001-11-06 06:51:55 PM  
perhaps holding in all that gas is what makes them so uptight and logical

where e'er you be,
let your wind go free

that's what my great-grandmother used to say
2001-11-06 06:51:58 PM  
Jib Squeak.
Barking Spider.
Stepped on a Duck.
Thunder Storm Rolling In.
House Settling.
Cracked My Coccyx.
This Chair Needs Grease.
Pardon My French.
2001-11-06 06:52:48 PM  
This is the most beutiful thing I have ever seen...
2001-11-06 06:55:47 PM  
(sung to the tune of Springsteen's "Everybody's Got A Hungry Heart")

Everybody's gotta burp and fart
Everybody's gotta burp and fart
Else your insides will be blown apart
Everybody's gotta bur-ur-urp and fart

Everybody's gotta burp and fart
Everybody's gotta burp and fart
You eat your chili and you take your shot
Everybody's gotta bur-ur-urp and fart

(saxamaphone solo)
