Who said the Transformers movies are "car commercial-looking?" What does it look like when Spock Lulz? Where can you wear Tony Stark's armor? When will we learn Doctor Who's name? How has social media ruined Luke Skywalker's life?

In honor of "Q" day in the A-Z Challenge I present five funny pictures of everyone's favorite Ferengi: Quark from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

The May 18th episode called "The Name of the Doctor" will lead up to the Anniversary. Steven Moffat, head writer and executive producer on Doctor Who, says, "The 50th starts here. The Doctor's secret is out -and everything's going to change." There's also a rumor that they'll be featuring the other Doctors by digitally inserting him into old episodes, which sucks because they never told the actors. (via Virgin Media)

    I like the third Quark picture best.

Looking at those pics has me thinking of that other dude with the hair...Warlock or something? He had a deep voice and wore a sash thingy over his uniform, I think.

  5. Nicole, out was either Q our Quark to me. Are you talking about Worf?

  6. Yeah Pat. Like Uwe Boll. He's bad and accepts it.

  7. Yes Maurice, I'm talking about Worf! I cannot believe I forgot his name, lol.

  8. Excited about Doctor Who!

  9. Funny pictures. I almost forgot about him since it's been so long since I watched the show, but this jogged my memory.
