March 22, 2012: It's Talk Like Shatner Day!

Back in 2009, a voice impressionist named Maurice LaMarche (Animanics, Futurama, The Critic) and Ohio resident Doug VanHorn teamed up to honor William Shatner for his birthday. Since then, several celebrities -- including Jason Alexander and Kevin Pollock -- have lent their voice talents to commemorate Captain Kirk every year on March 22, dubbed "Talk Like William Shatner Day."

Want some pointers? Watch the YouTube! video where LaMarche teaches you how to talk like Shatner, or visit Tor.com for a selection of William Shatner videos, including one where he gives a speech to George Lucas!

William Shatner turns eighty-one this year. I'm not sure my impression of William Shatner will do the actor (or Captain Kirk) any justice, but I can wish him a hearty and healthy Happy Birthday!
