Okay, I know some of you out there are Trekkies like myself and my son, so I'm sure you'll appreciate this bit of news. With an eye to renewed interest in Star Trek thanks to the J.J. Abrams "requel" version coming out this May, a company known as Genki Wear is coming out with three colognes/perfumes in April based on the original Star Trek series.
One is called "Tiberius" with a tag phrase of Boldly Go. (Pictured.) A second - and my favorite, I think - is called "Red Shirt," Because Tomorrow May Never Come. The third is called "Pon Farr," named after the Vulcan mating ritual.
They recommend you only use that one every seven years.
Trekkies got that punch line. Trust me.
THINGS THE CHILDREN LEARN AT STARFLEET KINDERGARTEN
The needs of the many outweigh the needs of th---No! It's mine, mine, MINE!
When crossing the street and holding hands, whatever you do, stay away from the kid in the red shirt.
The transporter is NOT a toy.
Don't make fun of the other kids' unusual appendages.
There's no use crying over spilled antimatter.
Don't eat the paste! It might be a sentient life form.
Be nice to the other kids. Their parents might take over your planet one day.
