At the end of February, Nichelle Nichols, who played Lieutenant Uhura on Star Trek, visited President Obama at the White House. Yesterday, she tweeted a photo of them giving the Vulcan Salute together, like a couple of nerds. And today, you will tell us WHAT IS THE CAPTION FOR WHEN THEY DID THIS?

Winner will receive special placement in this week’s Monsters’ Ball. Live long and CAPTION! (Via LaughingSquid.)

  1. May the Force be with you, Presidnt Obama!

  2. Further proof he’s an illegal alien.

  3. Oh good, neither of them are wearing sparkly pirate gear or have evil goatees. They’re from our universe!

  4. I thought his mom was a white lady.

  5. Obama must be getting sick of all these famous people who Klingon to him.

  6. As a fellow dude with pointy ears, you just gotta embrace it.

  7. Captain’s Log: Star Date 41582.4…5:53 PM Eastern Time Zone of Earth.

    We have located Uhura. She’s been found on the flight deck of the White House Enterprise. Standing with the leader of the United States. He appears to be some mix of Vulcan and Klingon. Many of the country’s own people seem to argue over his origin.

    We shall proceed with caution.

  8. I don’t have a caption, I just wanted to say that I think she is a national treasure.

  9. She is wearing a communicator necklace!!! #nerdalert

  10. Live long and hug her.

  11. Obama-Uhura 2212

  12. Both reminisced about the time they kissed William Shatner

  13. “Guys, come on. No gang signs.” – The Photographer

  14. “A Terrorist Vulcan Salute.” -FOX & Fiends

  15. Our first nerd president.

  16. Not to be outdone, Newt Gingrich has scheduled a photo op with Ego The Living Planet, Mitt Romney has summoned the herald of Galactus to check and see when Galactus’ schedule is open, and Santorum tried to schedule a rocket ship to take him to heaven where he could be seen high fiving angels, but unfortunately Obama canceled the space program.

  17. Chekhov almost made it to the Oval Office was detained after going on and on about ‘Nuclear Wessels.’

  18. “Don’t blame me, I voted for Obama.” — Kang

  19. If the Supreme Court overturns Obamacare, no one will be able to… Live Long and Prosper!

  20. Nichols was at the White House for an initial proposal meeting to found a National Endowment for the Mark Ruffalo.

  21. The afternoon in the Oval Office was going great up until a frenzied Joe Biden stumbled in wielding a Bat’leth and a slick pair of aviator sunglasses, murmuring about how realistic the holodceck made everything look and insisting Obama call him ‘Number One.’

  22. When approached to comment on the controversial rumor that he would work in an ‘alien origins’ story into the upcoming Barack Obama biopic, Michael Bay responded:
    “Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script [. . .] we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.”

    • I was so exhausted with that ‘news’ story before it was even reported. Michael Bay is exhausting, and all these people screaming their heads off are going to give him their money anyway after all the rumble-grumbling, and I wish they would all shut up and rest their cases already.

      Dear Hollywood,

      NEW RULE (well, actually it’s an old rule)– Don’t show or tell us shit about shit until you’ve got a trailer ready. Good god, What’s the matter with you? People are trying to live their lives. Put a muzzle on it, wouldja?

  27. To vote for anyone else would be illogical.
