It's Worse Than That, He's Dead, Jim!

He's dead, Jim!
I could be wrong, but I think he's dead, Jim. It just goes to show that it pays to have a memorable catchphrase. What show that is on today will people still be making videos and parodies about 40 years later? Probably The Simpsons, but will anything else have that kind of longevity? (Thanks to The Zeray Gazette for the laugh and the link.)

Of course it immediately reminded me of Star Trekkin' by The Firm, which has one terrible, stop-animation video, but sure knows a catchphrase.

Star Trekkin'

Uhura: There's Klingons on the starboard bow.
Spock: It's life, Jim, but not as we know it.
McCoy: It's worse than that, he's dead, Jim!
Kirk: We come in peace; shoot to kill.
Scotty: Ye cannae change the laws of physics!
