    Check out the Trek11 forum. They have a thread that starts out about whether there should be blue warp nacelles on the Enterprise, and it ends up with a crazy sombreroprize pic that several people start using as an avatar. Eventually, people start putting sombreros on all avs.

    I think you're seeing retarosis, which is where mental handicaps are spread through contact.

    Oh rubbish, it's a bit of harmless fun that doesn't hurt anyone. Sure beats trolling and whining and stuff.

    Did you guys get my idea to re-remaster TOS, so every time someone says "set phasers to 'maximum'" they dub it so he says "set phasers to 'Mexican'"? Then, when the person gets dematerialized, instead he winds up laying on the ground, wearing a striped blanket and a sombrero and taking a nap.
