Shatner On Kansas State Band Fine


Last weekend, a Kansas State halftime football show caused quite a stir, resulting in a $5000 fine for the school.

A routine that showed the USS Enterprise attacking a Kansas Jayhawks mascot was deemed inappropriate.

The routine, seen below, brought complaints that the alleged Enterprise was really male genitalia and that the attack on the Jayhawk was really a sexual act.

Most who saw it, including this reporter, didn’t see any such thing. The band wouldn’t win awards for its depiction of the Enterprise, but it looked nothing like a male penis.

Shatner agreed with the majority. “I think it’s time for the @Big12Conference leaders to step down and get their eyes checked,” he said, via Twitter. “What a travesty! I wonder if Mother Nature needs to apologize for cloud formations with these same people?”

What do you think? Does it look like the Enterprise or something else?
