First Shatner dissed Star Wars. Then Carrie Fisher dissed Star Trek and Captain Kirk. Now William Shatner has responded, and... well, just watch. I think I see what Shatner's trying to do, and I don't think he means to be quite as mean as he comes off -- I think he's talking more about the sagging that comes from getting older more than outright calling Carrie Fisher fat there at the end -- but Jesus, the little slideshow that plays while he talks about Star Wars' special effects is both brutal and hilarious. I eagerly, eagerly await Carrie Fisher's response, although I'm willing to bet it's only going to get crueler from here. Much thanks to Chris B. for the tip.
