Cenk Uygur is the host of Air America's morning radio show "The Young Turks." A few people are reported to find him funny, leading some very unfunny Democratic members of Congress as well as unfunny conservative pundits to appear on his show. Mr. Uygur is reported to be suing another funny man, Stephen Colbert of "The Colbert Report"for $65 million for allegedly stealing a joke of Mr. Uygur's about Klingons. To further his claim, Mr. Uygur recently posted a video on YouTube (here) detailing his claim and posting both parties jokes.
A commentator in AOL News may have summed the matter up nicely, if not a bit crudely:
Star Trek should sue you both for the use of Klingons in your jokes. Nice try at getting some publicity. Live long and prosper! speaking of Klingon jokes: (please don't sue me) Why did Captain Kirk buy a million rolls of toilet paper? To fight the Klingons from Uranus
