Canadian Central Bank Asks 'Star Trek' Fans to Stop ‘Spocking’ $5 Bills

Dammit Jim, it's a fiver!
Canadian bank officials are asking "Star Trek" fans to stop doodling Spock's portrait on the country's $5 bills in tribute to late actor Leonard Nimoy.
Known as "Spocking fives," the gag involves inking over the bill's portrait of former Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier to include the Vulcan officer's trademark pointy ears, eyebrows and matted black hairdo.
Though the goofy art form isn't new, it reportedly took off after Nimoy's death Friday at 83 from heart disease, prompting the brass at Canada's central bank to release a statement asking Trekkies to stop the highly illogical — but not illegal — behavior.
