The Resurrection

Yes, friends the season is upon us. The birds are singing, the flowers are blooming, the trees are coming back to life, and Terrans everywhere will be celebrating the resurrection of Mr. Spock.

Just don't expect to get the day off on the day off for this sacred holiday or see any murals on public property celebrating this wondrous event where Spock returned from the grave on the Genesis planet. Our government is mostly run by shape-shifters and Legion of Doom worshipers who communicate regularly with the Borg queen.

Now, other religions are going to try to claim this holiday for one of their heroes. And we say fine. Just as soon as Jesus Christ joins Starfleet, learns how to command a Constitution-class starship, and makes his way up to first officer under James T. Kirk, we'll celebrate his coming back from the grave too.

An extra special thanks to Chris James from A Sour Apple Tree for reminding everyone to celebrate this glorious holiday back in December when we were all drinking eggnog next to our Robinmas Trees.

Oh, the heresy. A day off for a man who couldn't even fire a phaser on stun at his enemies.

Jesus Christ was a Romulan spy.

I work for a secular organization and got the day off. Mwahahahahaha! I plan on spending Monday trolling the stores for half-priced Spock Resurrection Day candy. I just wish the candy manufacturers would get the Vulcan ears right. They always come out looking like bunnies. ;-)

Thank you for pointing that out, Mild Red. May Mr. Scott be with you in your time of need.

Chris,

That is a damn good possibility. A Romulan agent sent here to spy on Roman technology. I'm turning this over to the Elders for examination.
