Interesting Celery Fact No. 972

Until now, the prosthetics used to create the heads of Kling-ons in the popular television series "Star Trek" have been made from a rubber, taken from a cast of the actor's head. However, recent developments in preservatives means that the substance of choice, celery pulp, now no longer dissolves on contact with human skin, and is set to replace the rubber. "Celery is ideal for our purposes," said the show's Head of Make-Up and Prosthetics, Danbert McEagleburger. "It also cuts down on the food bill too - once the guy's scene is over, he can just eat his own damn head."
