Westboro Baptists Beam Down To Wrong Coordinates, Miss Spock's Funeral
While Vulcans would never stoop to the human emotional response of laughter, we know that Spock would wryly raise an eyebrow in appreciation of the absurdity (no, not irony, don't you dare say it was ironic) of the Westboro Baptist Church's failure to follow through on its threat to picket Leonard Nimoy's funeral.
