Star Trek . . .


The Iranian Ambassador to the UN had just finished giving 
a speech and walked out into the lobby of the convention 
center where he was introduced to a U.S. Marine General.

As they talked, the Iranian said, "I have just one question 
about what I have seen in America."
The General said, "Well, anything I can do to help?"
The Iranian whispered, "My son watches this show called 
Star Trek and in it there is... Kirk who is Canadian, Chekhov 
who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, Uhura who is black, 
and Sulu who is Japanese, but there are NO Muslims. My son 
is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any 
Iranians, Iraqis, Afghans, Egyptians, Palestinians, Saudis, 
Syrians, or Pakistanis on Star Trek."
 
The General laughed, leaned toward the Iranian Ambassador, 
and whispered in his ear, 
"That's because it takes place in the future..."

Thanks Dan !

PS: Well boys and girls, for the next three weeks these posts, for
the most part, will be pre-posted. Starting today we have shows
three week-ends in a row. I'll squeeze in my visits to yous guys when I can. After Labor Day weekend we're done for the
summer. So, the next three shows will be at Tahoe City, Tahoe
City, and Homewood. They are all at Lake Tahoe.

That's awesome, I can't wait until we're all wearing those jumpsuits too!

Supi said...

You have fun doing the shows!

Race, just go to any "Treky" convention and pick yourself up one.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Supi, Thank you, that's exactly what I plan on doing.

Dick said...

Enjoy yourself and I hope you do real, real good at the shows.

Please make it so. I love this. None to contend with would be awesome and the world would be a far better place. Okay, maybe just take Islam out of the mix. That would probably accomplish the same thing.

Have a terrific day and your next three shows being very successful. :)

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Marine, would you like to see the photo of us together? Just kidding, did I have you going.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Edutcher, what a genius you are.

Proof said...

I need to establish my geek cred here: Kirk wasn't Canadian, he's from Kansas. Bill Shatner's from Canada.

If you guys can't tell fantasy from reality, I'll have to make you all honorary Democrats...
