If They Were Klingons

Thanks to The Zach, we now know what Regis and Kathie Lee, Ernie of Bert & Ernie, and Barack Obama would look like if they were Klingons.

(Thanks to Kate for pointing this out.)

I think you mean Ernie

Look again: does it say Bert rather than Ernie up there? No, it does not.

This website does not make mistakes. Any mistakes that you may believe you have seen are merely the result of your own unhealthy, skewed mindset.

This non-mistake wouldn't have anything to do with how Bert was the gay one, would it? Or is it Ernie?

Is it just me, or does anyone feel like voting in a Klingon for President someday? They've got HONOUR dammit, even if they've no manners...

Nope, Obama's no Klingon. As I watched one of his speeches and the camera focused intently on his face and—more importantly—his ears, it hit me: he's a Ferengi.

Frightening, really.

That looks more like Kelly Ripa than Kathie Lee Gifford. This oversight on your part casts doubt on every substantive argument you have made and have yet to make on this site. Also, now we have to retroactively invade Iraq for a second time.

Yes, but what you fail to understand is that if Kathie Lee Gifford were a Klingon she would look like Kelly Ripa.

See my previous comment about this website, above.

Geez, they are so much more attractive as Klingons.
