I was kidding--I know they aren't really the same. Spock and the Klingon (Kang in the story) don't become slash fic hyper alphas trying to get into Kirk's panties, for instance.

I was team "What the-?"
And does it matter which we thought was worse? The only thing going for the Carol Burnett version was the laughs. At least the short story tried to get the characterization correct. Tried, mind you. I don't think it succeeded.
