Re: Sombrero Hats

It's a peculiar little meme that started in the original Star Trek XI forum. There were suggestions that the new Enterprise should be wearing a sombrero, and it kind of exploded from there.

Sadly, no sombreros made it into the final film.

I've been wondering about that since it started. All this time I could have just asked?

Re: Sombrero Hats

It's quite "old hat" now [ahem], and should be wisely ignored.

Follow the link BJ gave you. Set aside a couple of hours (seriously) and start at the beginning of the BWN thread. You will laugh until you cry. And then you'll beg for a sombrero.

That sounds like a great line from a movie preview.

^I've got a deep voice that belies my scrawny, sickly schoolgirl like frame. I'm game. Plus my dad was a DJ on Long Island in the 70s, so it's in the genes.

One man...in a world...who isn't afraid to put his foot in your ass.

Bring the kiddies along this summer to see Mr. Durp, the sombrero wearing dog walker who meets the love of his life at the mutt mitt station. Is it puppy love, or is he just looking for something to hump?

Coming May 15th to a theater near you!

Also starring Captain Robau and Yeoman Randi...they BOTH want your dawggies!
And keep your hands off Rupert, dammit!

Re: Sombrero Hats

Two thoughts when I saw the thread title:

1.) People are still asking about this?

and

2.) Somewhere, Locutus is crying.
