Star Trek Fans Are 'Spocking' Canadian Money To Honor Leonard Nimoy

Fans of the late great Leonard Nimoy have taken to defacing Canadian money in the form of “Spocking” it to make the former Prime Minister look like the Vulcan.

Fox News reports:

The passing of Star Trek icon Leonard Nimoy has inspired numerous ‘trekkies’ to scribble Spock’s pointy ears, flat hairline and Starfleet insignia onto former Canadian Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier’s likeness on the Canadian $5 bill.

The Bank of Canada said it is not illegal to deface the notes in such a way, but spokeswoman Josianne Menard told the Canadian Press that she urges Star Trek fans to stop.

“Writing on a bank note may interfere with the security features and reduces its lifespan,” she said.
