Three Sheep to the Wind

This comes from the old phrase “Three sheets to the wind”, which means you are drunk.

But where does that come from?

“Three sheets to the wind” comes from sailing terminology. A “sheet” is a rope or chain that holds one both lower corners of a sail.

I know – who knew that ropes would be called “sheets” while the sails look a whole lot more than sheets tha

Three Sheep to the Wind - Matthew Sheltonn a rope ever will.

But that’s those old sailors for ya – aRRR.

So if a sailing vessel is on the water and the wind is blowing and “sheets” are loose, this makes the sails flap around uncontrollably and makes the ship stagger around like it was drunk.

But the phrase is so crazy that I thought it might as well be “Three Sheep to the Wind” – that’s the Matthew Shelton version, anyway. And of course there are all kinds of sailors’ drinking songs, so maybe that’ll be next here. Arrr – wait – that’s a pirate. Maybe I’m Three Sheep to the Wind too.

Spock Playing Harmonica

I love the harmonica and if I can find a way to combine it with Science Fiction, so much the better.

Most people don’t know that According to AI,  there are some episodes with Spock playing harmonica:

One of my FAVORITE EPISODES is “The Trouble with Tribbles” (1967), where he plays to calm down a group of furrySpock playing harmonica - Matthew Shelton blog fuzz-ball creatures that have invaded the Enterprise to the extent they are filling all the air ducts.

Another example is in the movie “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” (1986), where Spock plays the harmonica to communicate with an alien probe.

So this meme is just having fun with Spock – he also changed his hairstyle a few times, like his hair long and straight, in “The Search for Spock” (1966) and “The Enterprise Incident” (1967).

In other episodes, he has worn his hair short and straight across the forehead, such as in “Amok Time” (1968) and “The Menagerie” (1971).

So this hairstyle is the ridiculous style Matthew Shelton would give him if I were a hairstylist.
Don’t EVER hire me for that 😉
