Here’s some stuff I enjoyed this week

I am speaking of course about David Michael Hasselhoff and William Alan Shatner. And while we are lucky in that we would never have to choose between the two, I thought I’d take a minute to compare the careers of these two titans to see just which one comes out on top. It’s on!
