Editorial cartoonist not fan of New Trek

The Onion's ``Kelly'' likes Leonard Nimoy, though.

nitpicking a bit but Nimoy was Jewish and from what I know/remember, they wouldn't casually write 'God', even less on a site and for a vignette.

Re: Editorial cartoonist not fan of New Trek

Those "Editorial Cartoons" in The Onion are as much parodies of editorial cartoons just as the bulk of The Onion is about parodying news stories. So, yes, it's making fun of the Trekkies, not actually about Nimoy and Abrams.

The cartoonist does not like trekkies. Nobody likes trekkies.

In a discussion of The Onion's take on trekkies, this is always appropriate:

Re: Editorial cartoonist not fan of New Trek

Without Abrams take on Trek the series would be dead and buried...Some people simply don't understand how irrelevant Star Trek had become before ST 09 revived it.

If Abrams version of Star Trek met with Leonard Nimoy's approval (not to mention the general public who made the series commercially viable for the first time in 15 years) it's ok with me.

What gets me is how prescient the Onion was. I think the people who work there are far more clever than they let on.

Beat me to it. The Onion's editorial cartoons are always themselves some sort sort of extreme (when regarding politics, usually hyperbolically extreme right-wing) in order to spoof extremes in actual editorial cartoons.

Well that could annoy some folks.

But at least they didn't depict Mohammed in that cartoon, just God and the Devil.
