There's so much to like here. Personal favourites:

"...The LP has been critically acclaimed for its unique "pop-driven" style. Its sole cover, a version of Pulp's "Common People" performed with Joe Jackson, has received good notices, often to the surprise of the reviewers."

"On June 9, 2005, Shatner performed a reworked rendition of "My Way" at the presentation of George Lucas's AFI Life Achievement Award, backed by a chorus line of dancers in Imperial Stormtrooper costumes who ultimately picked up Shatner and carried him offstage."

"Florence Foster Jenkins often vies with Shatner for the dubious honor of being cited as the worst vocalist ever. A recent Canadian Broadcasting Corporation vote put Shatner first, Jenkins second. However, Shatner is Canadian, so this may be favouritism, or the fact that many more people have lived through Shatner's song: most of those who heard Jenkins are now dead (no causality is implied)."
