(Reason) Just how rotten and outrageous is the IRS’ notorious Star Trek training video that cost $60,000 to produce? It’s so bad the William Shatner – the man, the myth, the legend who played the interplanetary poon hound Capt. James T. Kirk on the original series – is appalled.
“So I watched that IRS video. I am appalled at the utter waste of US tax dollars,” tweeted Shatner yesterday.
Say what you will about the star of such cinematic underachievers as Kindom of the Spiders, The Devil’s Rain, Big Bad Mama, and Incubus, an all-Esperanto meleagro seleto (look it up!), he didn’t directly waste taxpayer dollars while pursuing his career in stage, screen, and spoken-word poetry of the highest order.
