Spurious Awards Extra: Star Trek Gag Of The Week

Star Trek Gag Of The Week

(opens in new tab)

Did you hear the one about why the Federation is like a sheet of toilet paper? Oh, hang on… Not that kind of gag.

According to Karl Urban talking to Ain’t It Cool at Comic-Con, “JJ Abrams sent me something for Comic-Con this week and told me that anytime I was asked a question about Star Trek , I had to do this…” The site continues: “Karl removes a long strip of masking tape with something written on it off the leg of his jeans, where it has been stuck since he walked in the room; then proceeds to do this, posing for my photograph quite willingly.” Why are we suddenly feeling a little bit guilty ?
