If I had a hammer I’d smash this record.
William Shanter was infamous for terrible singing but Nimoy was responsible for some notorious tunes too. In particular, If I Had A Hammer and The Ballard Of Bilbo Baggins scar my memories.
Before deciding upon Spock’s trademark attack, The Vulcan Nerve Pinch, Nimoy experimented with the Vulcan Wedgie and The Vulcan Hickie. … Well … maybe it happened that way.
Take the Hellmans Mr. Sprout
Nimoy was a vegetarian, as was Mr. Spock, which made Nimoy the perfect choice to play the role.

Nimoy studied photography at UCLA and was also a published poet.
Mr. Spock was the USS Enterprise’s Second Officer / Science Officer and not the Baby And Child Care Officer.
