    I so pity Simon Pegg. You just know some freak is out there now contemplating how to take his finger as a prize. Probably someone on this very board.

    Scotty would be phasing in and out of the space-time canon!

    FORGET THE FINGER! DEMAND TORSO LOSS! THE CANON MUST BE PRESERVED! PEGG SHOULD HAVE BOTH LEGS CHOPPED OFF ANAKIN SKYWALKER STYLE. ANYTHING LESS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED BY THE FANBOIS.

    Fortunately for Pegg, TAS isn't canon. ;)

    This thread is offensive and in the worst possible taste. What will we make fun of next? Grace Lee Whitney's sexual assault and alcoholism?

    James Doohan lost his finger fighting the Nazis. I would hope a little more respect could be shown for his sacrifice.

    Grow up.

    Mods, please lock this thread.

    Chill, grasshopper. This is what you call a "joke thread", and I don't see how we're making fun of Doohan? Mind detailing what's offensive and in poor taste? Besides, after having mods look at this (and post in it!) for 4 days, I don't think it'll close because you order it closed.

    if they must do it, Pope Ratzinger must do it, the same way he shot Doohan's finger off

    Right here. But where are you?
    Agreed. We're making fun of the well-known obsessiveness that Trek fans tend to have over "canon;" there's absolutely no ridicule against Doohan implied or intended in anything I've seen here.

    Doohan's involvement is peripheral and random at best. It could just as easily be over any other obscure physical characteristic of TOS -- Pine must wear a toupee, the Enterprise bulkheads must be made of plywood, Yelchin must wear a big bushy wig, etc.

    ^ Jesus . . .

    Just . . . Jesus. You people are really twisted.

    What passes for humor around here is just one jump above booger jokes.
