William Shatner: Good Actor... Or Best Actor?

Shatnering should be an olympic sport, given how much effort goes into over acting.

We love William Shatner. And part of that reason is because we know even William Shatner knows he's kind of ridiculous. The man is now 86 years of age, and shows no sign of slowing down his Shatnerisms.

So, in honor of the man's birthday, here are some of the best Shatner moments we could muster up. Try not to snort so hard while laughing.
