What’s Canada’s greatest export? No, not maple syrup. It’s William Shatner. We’ve saluted the Captain on his birthday before, but we felt it was time to go deeper into just why the Qubecker rocks.

A Day in the Life of William Shatner at Man Cave Daily -- A Day in the Life of William Shatner... According to Man Cave Daily by Jacopo della Quercia  1. Wake up suspended in a tank of stem cells. See if it makes you look any closer to Mark Hamill.  More or less, how Canadian health insurance compares to America’s.  2. After washing the primordial ooze off your body, carefully adjust your toupee.  What William Shatner sees in the mirror each morning.  3. Enjoy a breakfast of Canadian bacon.  After using your Star Trek collector’s plate, destroy it.  4. First thing’s first: Spend some time working out in the gym. Go shirtless  If only they had sports bras for men.  5. After a few minutes in the gym, look in the mirror some more.   Wait... an idea!  6. Sit down and immediately brainstorm new Broadway revival: Jesus Christ Superstar Trek.  Naturally, starring you.  7. Call agent to pitch musical. Consider having Futurama team storyboard it.  Remind them that you invented the word “Brannigan’s Law.”  8. Brush up on your acting chops. Do this a few times.  9. All right, your first rehearsal! See if you can still hit a high note.  http://beerdays.co.uk/images/shatner1.jpg Uh oh...  10. After dismal failure, make another Priceline commercial. Again.  More or less, another day well spent.


Happy birthday, Bill!
