Sponsor a Klingon

Local cake artist Marie Porter posted a link on Facebook this morning that made us LOL and piqued our nerdy interest! We're sure most of you heard about or have possibly seen Commedia Beauregard's annual production of A Klingon Christmas Carol, in which, well...Klingons re-enact the timeless classic. Genius, eh? We think so.

Anyhoo, the local Klingon clan has been nominated for a strange award at the International Special Events Society's "Star Awards" for "Best Use of Food in an Event." What was the food? It was a cake designed by Marie, fashioned after a Klingon ship. Yes, really. The tickets are a little pricey, so Marie and her planned entourage of four strapping Klingon warriors are seeking small donations from their friends and fans to send them to the awards show -- in full Klingon attire, of course. Donors from $5-$75 get cool "thank you" gifts such as autographed pics of the Klingons and brownie mix.

Donate and read more about it HERE. At the very least, you can take heart in the fact that you helped send a pack of Klingons into a fancy, red carpet affair. And that alone is worth at least $5, if you ask us!

UPDATE: Thinkgeek just donated two $75 gift certificates to be raffled off to everyone who donates towards tickets for the Klingons! They've got 3 of the 4 tickets paid for now.

Cutting the cake, Klingon-style
