Shatner: Recites Sarah Palin Tweets; Pressures HP
  |  @   |  

We love a good Shatner story, and today we have a few to share with you.

Earlier this week, William Shatner made an appearance on The Tonight Show, where he recited Gov. Sarah Palin’s resignation speech as poetry. Palin had promised her supporters that she’d keep in touch via Twitter and she most certainly has been doing so. So, Shatner went on The Tonight Show again last night to recite her most interesting tweets.

You can watch both video segments here below.

In other Shatner news, the Star Trek vet put the pressure on Hewlett-Packard this week, leaving a company-wide voicemail message for staff of the computer giant.

“This is William Shatner. You, HP, promised me a toxic free computer by 2009. Now my friends at Greenpeace tell me I will have to wait until 2011. What’s up with that?… Please ask your leader, Mark Hurd, to make computers that are free of toxic PVC plastic and brominated flame retardants just as Apple has done.”

You can listen to the entire voice message at Greenpeace.org.

HP had made a commitment back in 2007 to remove harmful substances from their PCs by 2009 and is now under fire from Greenpeace and other environmental groups for extending the date to 2011.

This isn’t Shatner’s first teamup with Greenpeace. When working on Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home both Shatner and his co-star Leonard Nimoy worked with the environmental activist organization to bring to light the plight of whales, a species constantly targeted by hunters.
