Presenting Mr. and Mr. Sulu

Among the many gay couples that can now legally marry in California are George Takei and his long-term partner! Congrats to everyone!

I've never seen an episode of Star Trek, so my only exposure to Takei has been from one of my favorite Daily Show clips ever:



Now I know why he sounds so startled when Samantha Bee asks him about "Young Wet Bitches".

If you haven't seen it, you should totally watch Takei's brilliant response to homophobic comments from NBA player Tim Hardaway:

That was awesome! I'd never seen it before.

(And apparently it was shown on some ABC show -- do you know which one?)

George Takei saying "Young Wet Bitches" is, all by itself, pure comedy.

It's his articulation of the 't' in "Bitches" that makes it art!
