I Only Used It for Medicinal Purposes

I had an obituary for the recently-deceased Leonard Nimoy in the works, but time and a lack of writing skill have rendered it unworthy of posting. Meanwhile, our own CRH introduced his own tribute at a recent social gathering, the profound wisdom of which (the tribute, not necessarily the social gathering) we will not debate at these proceedings.

Behold the limited edition Romulan Ale:

There were six phrases/sayings at the bottom of each label in the six-pack (though to be fair, CRH, knowing his audience, brought two of them):
  • Wanting a beer is not so pleasing a thing as having a beer
  • Drinking this beer is your first, best destiny. Anything else is a waste of material
  • Sauce for the goose
  • I have been and always shall be your ale
  • The needs of the thirsty outweigh the needs of the few, or the one
  • Live long and prosper
Although they are all wonderful, the first two on the list are in a dead heat in my mind, regardless of what the second one implies about the drinker in question.

We are eagerly looking forward to the next shipment across the Neutral Zone.

As the Romulans would say, "Ilea thealh!"

Call me old fashioned but I think Romulan Ale should have a Romulan on it, not a Vulcan trader in Kivas and Trillium.

Also great to see Reed commenting here!
