Happy New Year: I hope you relish it as much as I

So I was thinking of watching the good ol' New Year ball drop at Times Square tonight, but then I saw the ball...

New Year’s Eve ball, or the Fesarius?

Hey, that's not the New Year's Eve ball! It's the Fesarius!

The Fesarius from The Corbomite Maneuver

That means Dick Clark is really Balok. OK then, I can deal with that. I'll just swap out my champagne for tranya.

Ah HA hahahahaha!
