    I was at FanExpo today, walking down a hall, and I didn't even realize that the person I was walking with was Walter Koenig! My nerdy brain exploded.

    You should'a been like "Your son in law has a funny podcast!".

    Oh yeah, and Star Trek was cool too.

    I know his daughter is married to a comedian but I forget who..

    Also should have asked him to say "Nuclear Wessels.."

    I'm actually proud of you since you didn't ask him to say Nuclear Wessels. I'm sure he appreciated it too. He seems like a really nice guy.

    His daughter is married to Jimmy Pardo. Funny dude.

    I practically met Sherman Hemsley one time. He was shopping at the same grocery store I was. I spotted him, and just stared in disbelief. I even got the attention of my brother, telling him "Hey, see that guy over there? That's Sherman Hemsley from the Jeffersons." My brother was like "Huh?" *insert facepalm* I then said "The little judge guy from Fresh Prince who pisses off Uncle Phil!" Later on I looked him up, and it turns out he lives in my city - at least he did at the time.

    Pardo is Never Not Funny... haha GET IT?!


    shutup, me.


    But yeah, talented family. Talented being subjective. His son played Boner on Growing Pains, and was the Joker in that Batman indie film thing from a few years back, that I'm forgetting the name of. The one with steroid 'Bats in the alley, and then the Aliens showed up or something?

    Yeah, that thing.
