Sir Ian McKellen is Gandalf AND Magneto. He’s also best friends with the (best) captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise. This makes him the Nerd King- er, Queen. I bow down to him every chance a gay comic booky sci-fi fanboy can get. This also means his visually witty sign at the Women’s March yesterday didn’t surprise me in the least. It’s the famed (well, famed in nerd meme circles) still of his bestie Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard holding his face in his hand.
In this situation, it’s like Captain Picard’s rueing the day that you-know-who took the Oval Office. We feel you, Jean-Luc. Sir Ian later explained on Facebook that he had FOUND the sign but still – it was obviously made for him to find. Patrick Stewart probably made it.
