Ah the Picard facepalm. The relatable reaction from the Star Trek Captain has taken on a life of its own. And now it’s also become a paperweight.
Captain Picard, played by Patrick Stewart on Star Trek: The Next Generation, is easily one of the best loved Trek characters of all time. He’s such a force in the fiction that he’s returning in an all new TV show on CBS All Access this fall.
Now one of his most famously meme-worthy reactions has become a paperweight. Yes friends, look on in wonder at the Captain Picard Facepalm Bust Paperweight: Bronze Edition.
Disappointing Captain Jean-Luc Picard is one of the worst things you can do. Seriously. In order, it’s: making a fool of yourself in front of Captain Picard, destroying the universe, and accidentally initiating the self-destruct sequence in your sleep. And since the dreaded Picard facepalm is such a big deal, we decided to “bronze it.” That way everyone can express their disappointment in us with bronzed Picards. Does it make the sting of embarrassment better or worse? We still don’t know.ThinkGeek
